The Neuroscientist

Reviews at the Interface of Basic and Clinical Neurosciences

eISSN: 10894098 | ISSN: 10738584 | Current volume: 30 | Current issue: 3 Frequency: Bi-monthly

The state-of-the-art reviews published in The Neuroscientist keep you up-to-date on the advances emerging in the neurosciences and related disciplines!

Edited by Stephen G. Waxman of Yale University School of Medicine with help from a renowned international editorial board that includes Nobel Prize winners and experts from top universities from around the world, The Neuroscientist reviews and evaluates the noteworthy advances and key trends in molecular, cellular, developmental, behavioral/systems, and cognitive neuroscience in a unique disease-relevant format.

Aimed at basic neuroscientists, neurologists, neurosurgeons, and psychiatrists in research, academic, and clinical settings, The Neuroscientist reviews and updates the most important new and emerging basic and clinical neuroscience research, focusing on original and innovative topics such as:

  • Neural transplantation, stem cells, and neurogenesis
  • Development and aging of the brain
  • Trophic and growth factors; guidance molecules
  • Channels, receptors and transmitters
  • Neural plasticity and regeneration
  • Applications of neurobiology to diagnosis and therapy of diseases of the brain and spinal cord
  • Functional imaging and cognitive neuroscience
  • Molecular and cellular mechanisms of disease
  • Neural substrates of behavior and behavioral disorders
  • Computational neuroscience
  • Genetics of neurologic and psychiatric diseases

The Neuroscientist's reviews and updates have been written by the world’s most respected authors, including: Lorne Mendell, Michael Moskowitz, Eric Nestler, Richard Frackowiak, Gordon Shepherd, Charles Gross, Steven Hyman, Rob Malenka, Anne Young, Stuart Lipton, Michael Gazzaniga, Jon Kaaas, and Semir Zeki.

Topics are wide-ranging and have included:

  • Molecular Mechanisms of Cortical Layer Formation
  • Neurogenesis and Depressions
  • Spinal Cords and Learning and Memory
  • Hippocampal Dysfunction in Aging and Disease
  • Imaging Pain in the Human Brain
  • Selective, Targeted Control of Neuronal Activity: A New Tool for Study of the Brain
  • Mirror Neurons and Behavior

Articles in The Neuroscientist are clearly written, authoritative, and provocative. They are well-referenced with the latest citations, and liberally illustrated with clear, instructive diagrams, figures and tables, providing informative, accessible, and thought-provoking reviews of the most rapidly-moving and important areas in neuroscience.

Neuroscience is a remarkably diverse discipline: reaching from molecular, to cellular, to developmental, to sensorimotor and emotional and cognitive, it is rich in including all aspects of our discipline. As a premier journal in our field, The Neuroscientist and its publisher believe that this intellectual diversity must be matched by diversity in the people who represent The Neuroscientist to the world. Over the past few years we have made important strides, broadening the Editorial Board in its geographical, ethnic and gender diversity. We are committed to doing more, and we pledge to do so. The Neuroscientist will continually reiterate its commitment to Diversity, Equity and Inclusion in its publication practices.

This journal is a member of the Committee on Publication Ethics (COPE).
