Current Opinion in Neurobiology publishes short annotated reviews by leading experts on recent developments in the field of neurobiology. These experts write short reviews describing recent discoveries in this field (in the past 2-5 years), as well as highlighting select individual papers of particular significance.

The journal is thus an important resource allowing researchers and educators to quickly gain an overview and rich understanding of complex and current issues in the field of Neurobiology. The journal takes a unique and valuable approach in focusing each special issue around a topic of scientific and/or societal interest, and then bringing together leading international experts studying that topic, embracing diverse methodologies and perspectives.

Journal Content: The journal consists of 6 issues per year, covering 8 recurring topics every other year in the following categories:

  • Neurobiology of Disease
  • Neurobiology of Behavior
  • Cellular Neuroscience
  • Systems Neuroscience
  • Developmental Neuroscience
  • Neurobiology of Learning and Plasticity
  • Molecular Neuroscience
  • Computational Neuroscience
In addition, every year 2 issues are allocated to Hot Topics. Section Editors, who are major authorities in the field, are appointed by the Editors-in-Chief of the journal to commission reviews from experts on each topic that they have selected. Review articles in Current Opinion in Neurobiology are by invitation only.

The journal is part of the Current Opinion and Research (CO+RE) suite of journals and is a companion title to the primary research, open access journal, Current Research in Neurobiology. CO+RE journals leverage the?Current Opinion?legacy of editorial excellence, high-impact, and global reach which ensures they are a widely-read resource, integral to a scientist?s workflow.
