Developmental Neuroscience



Aims and Scope

Gain new insights into the mechanisms of normal and abnormal brain development

Developmental Neuroscience is a multidisciplinary journal publishing papers covering all stages of invertebrate, vertebrate and human brain development. Emphasis is placed on publishing fundamental as well as translational studies that contribute to progress in understanding mechanisms of normal development as well as genetic and environmental causes of abnormal brain development. The journal provides valuable information for both physicians and biologists. The journal accepts original research reports, reports on technological advances, and long and short reviews. Current topics of particular interest to the journal include:

• Genetics of Neurodevelopmental Disorders
• Stem Cell-derived Models of Neurological Disease
• Injury of the Developing Nervous System
• Pre-clinical models of Neurodevelopmental Disorders
