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
Depression, a highly common mental health correlate is especially prevalent among the older population. Associated with varying degrees of increased susceptibility to chronic diseases, fracture, high rates of disability, as well as pain, relatively little has been done over time to reduce the incidence and immense burden of this widespread health problem, despite evidence that this disease and its consequences are not inevitable. This Special Edition welcomes articles that focus on this topic of depression as applied to aging, especially from the viewpoint of prevention, as well as treatment, and early detection. Articles of any genre concerning the importance of early detection, preventing and treating geriatric depression and its correlates in a holistic or integrated manner are specifically sought.
