    Aims and Scope


    Translational Neuroscience is an international, peer-reviewed journal that considers articles from all fields of neuroscience, as well as from related disciplines of neurology, psychiatry and neurosurgery. The aim of this journal is to provide a closer interaction between basic and clinical neuroscientists by publishing original papers that expand our understanding of brain structure, function, and disease, and translate this knowledge into clinical applications and novel therapies of nervous system disorders. Review articles are also encouraged and sometimes invited, as well as constructive and interesting correspondence. The journal is published quarterly in English language.
