As a result of the significant disruption that is being caused by the COVID-19 pandemic we are very aware that many researchers will have difficulty in meeting the timelines associated with our peer review process during normal times. Please do let us know if you need additional time. Our systems will continue to remind you of the original timelines but we intend to be highly flexible at this time.
COVID-19 and impact on peer review
Aims and scope
The Journal of Mathematical Neuroscience (JMN) publishes research articles on the mathematical modeling and analysis of all areas of neuroscience, i.e., the study of the nervous system and its dysfunctions. The focus is on using mathematics as the primary tool for elucidating the fundamental mechanisms responsible for experimentally observed behaviours in neuroscience at all relevant scales, from the molecular world to that of cognition. The aim is to publish work that uses advanced mathematical techniques to illuminate these questions.
It publishes full length original papers, rapid communications and review articles. Papers that combine theoretical results supported by convincing numerical experiments are especially encouraged.
Papers that introduce and help develop those new pieces of mathematical theory which are likely to be relevant to future studies of the nervous system in general and the human brain in particular are also welcome.
