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 a variety of article types (Original Research, Review, Communication, Opinion, Comment, Conference Report, Technical Note, Book Review, etc.). 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
Green tea contains many functional ingredients, including catechins such as epigallocatechin gallate, caffeine, and amino acids such as theanine and glutamic acid. The importance of functional foods has been pointed out in "preventive medicine," which is the practice of preventing illness rather than curing it with medicine after it has occurred. Among these, green tea is considered to be the food with the highest functional properties.
For example, aging and stress have serious effects on brain functions. As the aging population is growing worldwide, the prevention of aging is a universal problem. Brain aging is an important issue not only for improving the quality of life of individuals but also for social and economic reasons. In addition, depression is the most common mental disorder, and stress accumulation is an important risk factor for depression. Green tea may play a significant role in healthy aging and stress reduction. In this special issue, we would like to present the findings on the various effects of green tea on brain function.
