New Online Journal Launches in December
The new online Journal of Neurophysiology launches on December 7, with many exciting features:
  • A redesigned and upgraded user experience
  • Responsive design (optimized for any screen size)
  • Streaming audio/video embedded in the article
  • Enhanced article-level usage statistics
  • Many other features designed to streamline the author and reader experience
New Feature: Social Media Request Form
If your paper was recently accepted by Journal of Neurophysiology, your acceptance letter contained a link to our new Social Media Request Form. This form allows you to provide preferences for promoting your article through social media. We can link your personal or institutional social media accounts to the posting, or request to place it on a particular venue.

Transfer your Paper via NPRC
The Neuroscience Peer Review Consortium (NPRC) is an alliance of 50+ neuroscience journals, including the Journal of Neurophysiology, that aims to reduce peer review time. If your paper was rejected by a NPRC journal, you can transfer it to a second NPRC journal. The original journal sends the prior reviews and often the identity of the reviewers to the editor of the second journal, so they can treat the paper like a revision and not a new submission.

Neural Control of Movement Society: 2018 Meeting
The Journal of Neurophysiology will be a sponsor of the 28th Society for the Neural Control of Movement Meeting in Santa Fe, New Mexico, from May 1 - 4,  2018. Oral abstract submissions are open until November 29, 2017 and poster submissions will be accepted through February 26, 2018.

Nominations are also open until November 30 for the 2018 Neural Control of Movement Young Investigator Award.
Highlighted Collection
Neurophysiology of Tactile Perception: A Tribute to Steven Hsiao
Our Collection of articles on the Neurophysiology of Tactile Perception, in tribute to Steven Hsiao, has become a definite source of information on the topic. This collection contains 37 articles, including 6 reviews, related to somatosensory neurophysiology, including the encoding of tactile signals by sensory receptors, the processing of tactile signals by the central nervous system, and neural mechanisms for perceiving tactile signals.
Listen to Podcast About the Collection by Jeff Yau Listen to a Podcast about this Collection by Sliman Bensmaia
New Podcasts
More and more authors are electing to produce a podcast related to their article.  We handle all the editing and production of podcasts; authors just need to participate via Skype.   Let us know if you want to produce a podcast related to your recently-accepted paper.
Most Discussed Recent Articles
We use Altmetric to determine how the articles we publish are being discussed through online media.  Often this discussion begins with our promoting an article through social media.  Our new online journal that launches in December will feature Altmetric statistics for every article.

Read our most discussed articles in October:

Motor recovery beginning 23 years after ischemic stroke by Peter Sörös, et al.

(Altmetric score=69)

Group IV nociceptors develop axonal chemical sensitivity during neuritis and following treatment of the sciatic nerve with vinblastine by Rosann Govea, et al.

(Altmetric score=53)

Caffeine accelerates recovery from general anesthesia via multiple pathways by Robert Fong, et al.

(Altmetric score=48)

Altered tactile sensitivity in children with attention-deficit hyperactivity disorder by Nicolaas Puts, et al.

(Altmetric score=38)

Separable systems for recovery of finger strength and control after stroke by Jing Xu, et al.

(Altmetric score=37)

Neuronal networks in the developing brain are adversely modulated by early psychosocial neglect by Catherine Stamoulis, et al.

(Altmetric score=22)

Most Read Recent Articles
Articles published in the Journal of Neurophysiology are widely indexed and promoted via a number of mechanisms, and as a result are extensively read.
