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 2019

  • 50 Years of Modeling Neural Activity: Celebrating Jack Cowan's Career
  • Closes July 1, 2019

    The Journal of Neurophysiology has partnered with the organizers of the conference that occurred on May 11, 2018 to celebrate Jack Cowan's 50th anniversary at the University of Chicago. This call is for manuscripts (including reviews) related to presentations at the meeting as well as to recent developments in research on modeling activity patterns in neuronal networks.

  • Modularity and Compositionality in Motor Control: Acknowledging Emilio Bizzi
  • Closes July 1, 2019

    The Journal of Neurophysiology has partnered with the organizers of the workshop that occurred on May 5, 2018 to discuss the topics of modular organization of motor control architecture and compositionality in the coordination of complex actions and to acknowledge Emilio Bizzi's role in exploring these ideas. This call is for manuscripts (including reviews) related to discussion at the workshop as well as recent developments in research on modularity and compositionality in motor control.

    Submit your manuscript.


  • International Motoneuron Society
  • Closes July 1, 2019

    The Journal of Neurophysiology is a sponsor of the 2018 International Motoneuron Society Meeting, which occurred on June 11–14, 2018 in Boulder, Colorado. As part of this sponsorship, the Journal will publish articles (including reviews) associated with presentations at the meeting, as well as papers from International Motoneuron Society members.
