Aims and scope

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

Prerequisites for publication:

Authorship. The Editors of Experimental Brain Research subscribe to recommendations formulated by the International Committee of Medical Journal Editors [Ann Int Med (1988) 108:258-265] regarding criteria for authorship. Accordingly, each person listed as an author or coauthor for a submitted report must meet all of three criteria. An author or coauthor shall have: 1. conceived, planned, and performed the work leading to the report, or interpreted the evidence presented, or both; 2. written the report or reviewed successive versions and shared in their revisions; 3. approved the final version. Meeting these criteria should provide each author sufficient knowledge of and participation in the work that he or she can accept public responsibility for the report.
