Our Biggest Improvement Is Coming Soon!
By the end of 2017, the Journal of Neurophysiology is transitioning to a new, sophisticated online platform. This platform will permit integration of audio and video in articles, better linkage with social media, tracking of downloads, and many other features.
The new platform is our latest measure to improve the Journal and support our authors and readers.

Help US Promote YOUR Article
Readers are increasingly using social media to locate articles of interest. We will work with authors to promote their article through social media.  For example, we can link a social media promotion to an author's personal or institutional accounts, and will repost authors' social media about their article. On request, we will also generate a Podcast for any accepted paper. Contact us with any requests to promote your article!
Recent Podcasts
We have highlighted 10 articles published in 2017 with a Podcast. All of these articles are also included in our Articles with Podcasts Collection.

Listen to the following recent Podcasts to learn more about hot topics in neuroscience. We are also pleased to generate a video or audio Podcast related to your article published in the Journal of Neurophysiology. Just ask!

Highlighted Collection: Neurobiology of Deep Brain Stimulation
Our Collection of articles on the Neurobiology of Deep Brain Stimulation has become a definitive source of information on the topic. The Collection includes 12 articles (8 research papers and 4 reviews) on the use of deep brain stimulation to treat motor disorders and epilepsy.

New  Manuscript Type: Case Studies in Neuroscience
"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".
