OBM Neurobiology is an international peer-reviewed Open Access journal published quarterly online by LIDSEN Publishing Inc. By design, the scope of OBM Neurobiology is broad, so as to reflect the multidisciplinary nature of the field of Neurobiology that interfaces biology with the fundamental and clinical neurosciences. As such, OBM Neurobiology embraces rigorous multidisciplinary investigations into the form and function of neurons and glia that make up the nervous system, either individually or in ensemble, in health or disease. OBM Neurobiology welcomes original contributions that employ a combination of molecular, cellular, systems and behavioral approaches to report novel neuroanatomical, neuropharmacological, neurophysiological and neurobehavioral findings related to the following aspects of the nervous system: Signal Transduction and Neurotransmission; Neural Circuits and Systems Neurobiology; Nervous System Development and Aging; Neurobiology of Nervous System Diseases (e.g., Developmental Brain Disorders; Neurodegenerative Disorders).

OBM Neurobiology publishes research articles, technical reports and invited topical reviews. Although the OBM Neurobiology Editorial Board encourages authors to be succinct, there is no restriction on the length of the papers. Authors should present their results in as much detail as possible, as reviewers are encouraged to emphasize scientific rigor and reproducibility.

About This Topic

Injury to the central nervous system (CNS) such as by trauma and/or ischemia can result in death or long term disability. To date, there are no effective therapies to treat paralysis of limbs or loss of bodily functions involving organs such as the eye or bowel. Furthermore, patients can experience debilitating pain that can not be managed effectively. Therefore, there is an urgent clinically unmet need to improve the lives of CNS-injured patients. One particular direction of research is to protect neurons from cell death or induce axonal regeneration in damaged neurons and/or induce collateral sprouting in uninjured neurons. In this special edition we invite submissions that specifically focus on novel, inventive and original approaches to encourage neuroprotection, neuroregeneration and/or neuroplasticity in post-CNS injury. Our aim is to highlight targeting neurons can be beneficial to treating CNS injury after the injury has occurred.

Submission

Manuscripts should be submitted online at http://www.lidsen.com/account-login by registering and logging in to this website. Once you are registered, click here to go to the submission form. Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline. Papers will be published continuously (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as communications are invited. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the Editorial Office for announcement on this website. Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts are refereed through a peer-review process. Guidelines for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts are available on the Instructions for Authors page. OBM Neurobiology is an international peer-reviewed Open Access monthly journal published by LIDSEN. Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript.
