    Aims and Scope


    Cognitive, Affective, & Behavioral Neuroscience publishes theoretical, review, and primary research articles concerned with behavior and brain processes in humans, both normal participants and patients with brain injuries or processes that influence brain function, such as neurological disorders (including both healthy and disordered aging) and psychiatric disorders (e.g., schizophrenia and depression). In addition, articles that use animal models to address cognitive or affective processes involving behavioral, invasive, or imaging methods are also highly welcome. One of the main goals of CABN is to be the premier outlet for strongly psychologically motivated studies of brain–behavior relationships. Thus, the editors highly encourage papers with clear integration between psychological theory and the conduct and interpretation of the neuroscientific data. Articles will be appropriate to the journal if they cover: (1) topics relating to cognition, such as perception, attention, memory, language, problem solving, reasoning, and decision-making; (2) topics concerning emotional processes, motivation, reward prediction, and affective states; and (3) topics relating to individual differences in relevant domains, including personality. In all cases, the editors will give highest priority to papers that report a combination of behavioral and neuroscientific methods to address these research topics.

    Further, the editors will give highest priority to papers that include sample sizes that provide adequate power.  The fields of psychology and functional neuroimaging have become increasingly concerned that small sample sizes contribute to replication failures in the literature, and are converging on the consensus that there is a need to increase minimum samples sizes.

    We also invite synthetic papers that make use of computational and other approaches to formal modeling. CABN also welcomes multistudy empirical articles or articles integrating multiple methods and approaches to understanding brain–behavior relationships.
