The Main Forum for Current Topics on Nervous System Evolution

Brain, Behavior and Evolution is a journal with a loyal readership, high standards, and a unique profile as the main outlet for the continuing scientific discourse on nervous system evolution. It publishes comparative neurobiological studies that focus on nervous system structure, function, or development in vertebrates and invertebrates. It also features review articles that provide critical overviews of current topics in evolutionary neurobiology. Approaches range from the molecular over the anatomical and physiological to the behavioral. Most papers published in Brain, Behavior and Evolution include an evolutionary angle, at least in the discussion, and focus on neural mechanisms or phenomena. Within this scope, the journal is currently particularly interested in suitable contributions from experimental and behavioral studies. The journal has a loyal following among evolutionary neurobiologists and is of interest to neuroethologists, neuroanatomists, comparative and developmental biologists, and neuroscientists investigating species diversity.
