Manuscripts accepted for Calls for Papers will be included in one of our Collections.


 

Calls Closing in January 2019

  • Society for the Neural Control of Movement
  • Closes January 1, 2019

    Journal of Neurophysiology is a sponsor of the 2018 Society for the Neural Control of Movement (NCM) Meeting, planned for April 30–May 4, 2018 in Santa Fe, New Mexico. As part of this sponsorship, the Journal will publish articles (including reviews) associated with presentations 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.


  • Model Systems of Synaptic Transmission
  • Closes January 1, 2019

    Synaptic transmission is the fundamental process by which neurons communicate with each another, as well as with nonneuronal target cells such as muscles or glia cells. Typical model systems employed to study different aspects of synaptic transmission include large invertebrate synapses, the neuromuscular junction, giant mammalian synapses such as the calyces of Held, as well as synapses in hippocampal and cerebellar circuits. This call is for studies that expand our understanding of model systems for synaptic transmission, particularly those that incorporate new genetic tools, advances in imaging methods, and modern electrophysiological techniques.


  • Advances in Vestibular Research: A Tribute to Bernard Cohen, MD
  • Closes January 1, 2019

    Bernard Cohen has spent his career studying the vestibular system. His early papers on the motor consequences of stimulation of individual vestibular nerve branches provided the impetus for the development of vestibular prosthetics. His work has also offered insights into cerebellar influences on vestibular function, mechanisms of nystagmus, spatial orientation, the etiology of motion sickness, consequences of spaceflight on vestibular signal processing, recovery from vestibular system damage, and the circuitry that mediates vestibulo-autonomic responses. This call for manuscripts in tribute to Bernard Cohen is to highlight recent advances in vestibular research.

     

     

     

    Calls Closing in July 2018

  • Progress in Motor Control Meeting
  • Closes July 1, 2018

    The Journal of Neurophysiology has partnered with the organizers of the Progress in Motor Control Meeting held July 20-22, 2017 in Miami, FL, and will publish the meeting proceedings. Attendees of Progress in Motor Control are encouraged to submit a manuscript related to their presentation for this Call.

  • Neuroscience at the 38th World Congress of the International Union of Physiological Sciences
  • Closes July 1, 2018

    The Journal of Neurophysiology is a sponsor of the 38th World Congress of the International Union of Physiological Sciences (IUPS), held August 1-5, 2017 in Rio de Janiero, Brazil. As part of this sponsorship, we will publish manuscripts related to neuroscience presentations at the meeting. IUPS meeting attendees are encouraged to submit a manuscript for this Call.

  • The Role of Eye Movements in Perception, Cognition and Action
  • Closes July 1, 2018

    The study of eye movements continues to provide foundational principles upon which our knowledge of movement control fundamentals rests. The study of eye movements also provides insights into a variety of cognitive processes including attention and decision-making. This Call is for manuscripts related to the psychophysics and physiology underlying the control of eye movements, and psychophysical and physiological studies using eye movements in an effort to gain insight into the principles underlying perceptual processes and higher mental function including attention, social behavior, reading and scene perception and decision-making in human and animal subjects.
