Molecular Neurobiology is an exciting journal for neuroscientists who wish to stay in close touch with progress at the forefront of contemporary molecular brain research. It is specifically designed to synthesize and critically assess research trends for all neuroscientists at the cutting edge of this dramatically developing area. The journal has proven to be crucial in departmental libraries, serving as essential reading for every committed neuroscientist striving to keep abreast of rapid developments in a forefront field. Each topic chosen for review is thoroughly analyzed by scientists and clinicians internationally renowned for their special competence in the areas treated.

  • Special Issue on Sex and gender differences in neurological disorders

    The neurosciences field has particularly suffered from a bias toward using male animals. Sex continues to be largely ignored in preclinical studies, and biological sex is rarely taken in consideration when making treatment decisions in neurological disorders.

    For this reason, we are calling for papers focused on molecular mechanisms underlying sex differences in healthy and diseased brain. We strongly believe that better understanding of these differences will help in generating diagnostic and therapeutic strategies optimal for each sex. These contributions will be included in our Special Issue “Sex and gender differences in neurological disorders”.

  • Announcement: COVID-19 impact on peer review

    As a result of the significant disruption that is being caused by the COVID-19 pandemic we are very aware that many researchers will have difficulty in meeting the timelines associated with our peer review process during normal times. Please do let us know if you need additional time. Our systems will continue to remind you of the original timelines but we intend to be highly flexible at this time.
