Calls Closing in January 2021

  • Society for the Neural Control of Movement
  • Closes January 1, 2021

    For the third year running, JNP is a sponsor of the Society for the Neural Control of Movement (NCM) Meeting (https://ncm-society.org/2020-meeting/), which is planned for April 27–May 1, 2020 in Dubrovnik, Croatia. As part of this sponsorship, the Journal will publish articles (including reviews) related to work presented at the NCM meeting, as well as papers from NCM society members. All submissions will go through the normal peer review process. Note that all review manuscripts must be commissioned by the editor prior to submission.

    Submit your manuscript.


  • Vestibular and Oculomotor Function in Health and Disease: A Tribute to W. Michael King, PhD
  • Closes January 1, 2021

    Mike King’s scientific contributions to the vestibular and oculomotor fields span nearly half a century. Some examples of his work include monocular control of eye movement, vestibulo-ocular function during active versus passive head movements, and the vestibular system’s response to external insult. Mike’s interests have extended from sensory cells in the vestibular periphery, to oculomotor and vestibular circuits of the brain stem, and all the way to the extraocular muscles and resulting behavior. This call for manuscripts is organized in conjunction with the Satellite Meeting of the Society for the Neural Control of Movement in Dubrovnik, Croatia, on April 26–27, 2020. Please help us honor Mike by submitting manuscripts that advance the vestibular and oculomotor fields that have been a source of passion and inspiration to him.

    Calls Closing in July 2020

  • Spinal Networks and Spinal Cord Injury: A Tribute to Reggie Edgerton
  • Closes July 1, 2020

    The Journal of Neurophysiology is collaborating with the organizers of a workshop at the Shirley Ryan AbilityLab that will take place on October 18, 2019 to discuss these neuromodulatory interventions and to acknowledge Reggie Edgerton’s career and contributions to the field of spinal cord networks and spinal cord injury. This call is for manuscripts (including reviews) related to the topic of this workshop as well as recent developments in research on spinal cord physiology and its role in motor control.

    Submit your manuscript.


  • The Benefits of Nonhuman Primate Research for Understanding the Brain and Spinal Cord in Health and Disease
  • Closes July 1, 2020

    Many of the most significant discoveries in neuroscience involved research in nonhuman primates. Monkeys, particularly rhesus monkeys and marmosets, continue to serve as vital models for studies on the structure, function, and pathology of the brain and spinal cord. This call is for manuscripts (including reviews) that highlight the unique benefits from research in nonhuman primates, and the importance of the findings from this work.
