"Case Studies in Neuroscience" provides a forum for human or animal subjects studies that cannot be replicated experimentally
(e.g., they report the neurological effects of a rare disease), but provide unique insights into mechanisms of neural function
(either at the cellular or systems level).
Clinical case studies that describe the treatment of a patient with a rare medical condition are NOT appropriate for this category, and will be rejected without peer review. Acceptable submissions must provide insights into mechanisms of neural function, and/or how those mechanisms are altered by a disease process. Authors are encouraged to consult with the Editor-in-Chief to determine if their manuscript qualifies for submission as "Case Studies in Neuroscience".
Since its founding in 1938, the
Journal of Neurophysiology has published many of the seminal papers in neuroscience. We highlight the most important articles published in the
Journal in our
Collection of Classic Articles and through our "Throwback Thursday" social media promotions.
