Aims & Scope

The Brain Research Bulletin (BRB) aims to publish novel work that advances our knowledge of cellular and molecular mechanisms that underlie neural network properties associated with brain function and behavior and plastic changes occurring in the healthy nervous system or that is linked to neurological and neuropsychiatric diseases. The BRB is especially interested in studies investigating in vivoneural functions using novel methodologies, such as optogenetics, multielectrode array recordings and life imaging. Although clinical research is out of the Journal's scope, the BRB is interested in publishing translation research that provides insight into biological mechanisms and processes affected in disease, such as the use of animal models for neurological and neuropsychiatric disorders. Accordingly, studies on drugs with novel targets and actions are also of interest.

Manuscripts should use a combination of experimental approaches to address at least two of the general areas aforementioned; research that is exclusively descriptive in nature will not be considered for publication. For example, manuscripts describing changes in RNA or protein expression patterns alone are not appropriate for publication but can be considered if they include experiments that investigate the function of those proteins or how changes in their expression levels may be related to behavior, plasticity or neurotransmission. In addition, studies that exclusive report on the association of genetic polymorphism with disease, but fail to include additional experiments demonstrating alterations in the gene's expression or to address potential biological mechanisms relevant to the disease, will not be viewed favorably by the Journal.

Brain Research Bulletin offers simple electronic submission, accelerated peer-review, rapid publication and high quality color production with no expense to authors. Section Editors are committed to work closely with authors to provide constructive assistance to enhance visibility and impact of published articles.
