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.

Archiving: full-text archived in CLOCKSS.

Rapid publication: manuscripts are undertaken in 11.8 days from acceptance to publication (median values for papers published in this journal in the second half of 2021, 1-2 days of FREE language polishing time is also included in this period).

About This Topic

Traumatic brain injury includes various pathologies. Neuroimaging is key examination to know these pathologies. Primary traumatic brain injuries include direct mechanical injury, hematoma and contusion. Secondary traumatic injuries include edema, ischemia, and anoxia. These primary and secondary injuries happened in various time flames. So timely evaluation using neuroimaging is critical to determine the diagnosis and appropriate therapy. CT and MRI are widely used to evaluate these structural traumatic brain injury. Advanced imaging such as perfusion, diffusion and functional images revealed pathophysiology of each brain lesions. In this special issue, cutting edge research article will be included. These researches will contribute clinical managements and contribute the prognosis of the patient with traumatic brain injury.
