Neuroscience Letters

The rapid communication journal for the neurosciences.

Neuroscience Letters is devoted to the rapid publication of short, high-quality papers of interest to the broad community of neuroscientists. Papers in all areas of neuroscience - molecular, cellular, developmental, systems, behavioral, cognitive, and computational - will be considered for publication. Submission of laboratory investigations that shed light on disease mechanisms is encouraged. Clinical studies will only be considered when they provide new information about the organization or actions of the nervous system, or provide new insights into the neurobiology of disease.

Neuroscience Letters does not publish case reports; papers that are primarily devoted to psychological or philosophical questions, papers that use unvalidated methodology, or that fall outside of the realm of neuroscience will also not be published.
