Founded in 1966, Experimental Brain Research publishes original contributions on many aspects of experimental research of the central and peripheral nervous system. The scope of the journal encompasses neurophysiological mechanisms underlying sensory, motor, and cognitive functions in health and disease. This includes developmental, cellular, molecular, computational and translational neuroscience approaches. The journal does not normally consider manuscripts with a singular specific focus on pharmacology or the action of specific natural substances on the nervous system.

Article Types: Original Paper, Review, Mini-Review, Case Study, Letter to the Editor
