First "Case Study in Neuroscience" Published
Our first article in the new category " Case Studies in Neuroscience" has been published.  The article is titled " Case Studies in Neuroscience: A Dissociation of Balance and Posture Demonstrated by Camptocormia," by Rebecca St George, Victor Gurfinkel, Jeff Kraakevik, John Nutt, and Fay Horak.

New Feature: Social Media Request Form
Since September 1, we have promoted recent Journal of Neurophysiology articles through 58 Facebook posts, 70 tweets on Twitter, and three PodCasts. Every article we publish is highlighted through social media, an increasingly important forum to reach other neuroscientists and the public.
We are introducing an optional Social Media Request Form to make it easier for authors to provide specific requests about the promotion of their article. A link to this new form will be present in every acceptance decision letter sent to authors.
