Aims & Scope


The aim of the Journal of Behavioral and Brain Science is to publish original research articles and reviews in the general field of behavioural and brain function. Articles dealing with the neuroanatomical and neurochemical basis of behavior are especially welcomed. Multidisciplinary contributions from all fields of the neurosciences are encouraged so long as emphasis is placed in investigating the biological substrates of behavior and of mental processes underlying behavior. Contributions from the following areas are also welcome:


  • · Cognitive Neuroscience
  • · Neurobiology
  • · Neurology
  • · Neuropharmacology and Psychopharmacology
  • · Neurosurgery
  • · Psychiatry

  • The journal will consider studies using brain imaging, neuropharmacology, genetic manipulations and electrophysiological techniques to examine brain function and behavioural processes. Investigations with both human and animal subjects are welcomed.
