The investigation of basic mechanisms involved in the pathogenesis of neurological and psychiatric disorders has deepened our knowledge of these disorders and their treatment. The Journal of Neural Transmission establishes an interface between basic sciences and clinical neurology and psychiatry and acts as a platform for translational research publications in neurosciences and associated clinical fields, thus bridging the gap between basic knowledge and clinical application.

The journal is published monthly in three sections: 'Translational Neuroscience', 'Neurology and preclinical neurological studies' and 'Psychiatry and preclinical psychiatric studies'.

  • Explores the interfaces between basic neurosciences and clinical neurology and psychiatry
  • Presents separate sections on a wide range of sub-disciplines
  • Covers Translational Neuroscience, Neurology and preclinical neurological studies, Psychiatry and preclinical psychiatric studies
  • 97% of authors who answered a survey reported that they would definitely publish or probably publish in the journal again

  • 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.
