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

The WHO classification of Tumors of the Central Nervous System (CNS) highlighted the pivotal role of molecular and genetic markers for predicting tumor biological behavior, therapy response and patient prognosis. We seek original research articles focusing on genetic, molecular and radiological features of CNS tumors that might impact on clinical practice, including clinical and preclinical data. Additionally, we invite submission of reviews, editorials, case reports, technical reports elucidating biological features of the CNS tumors, the interaction of tumors with healthy nervous tissue, as well as illustrating the effect of medications and cutting-edge technology on CNS tumor diagnosis and treatment.
