Stress response in fish

The psychological modulation of the stress response may be evolutionary conserved across vertebrates, despite being implemented by different brain circuits in mammals and fish. Read here

Epileptiform field potentials in mouse hippocampal slices

Prolonged exposure to a modified artificial cerebrospinal fluid by pretreatment and subsequent perfusion can induce epileptiform field potentials in mouse hippocampal slices. Read here

Music may improve reaction to unpleasant odours

Music training by pairing negative odours with positive music can reduce the negative emotional state caused by unpleasant odours. Read here

BMC Series Focus Issues

October: Focus on Stem Cells

With Stem Cell Awareness day on the 13th October this year we have compiled an article collection from across different BMC Series journals covering aspects of basic stem cell biology; in vitro differentiation studies; stem-cell based therapy studies for various conditions in animal models; technical advancements and ethical issues. 

September: Patient and public involvement in research

In recognition of World Patient Safety Awareness day on 17th September, the BMC Series presents a focus issue on Patient and Public Involvement (PPI) in research.  We have collated free-to-read content from across our journals - showcasing patient perspectives, research into the study of PPI, and engaging public partners as co-authors in research.

Aims and scope

BMC Neuroscience is an open access, peer-reviewed journal that considers articles on all aspects of neuroscience, welcoming studies that provide insight into the molecular, cellular, developmental, genetic and genomic, systems, network, cognitive and behavioral aspects of nervous system function in both health and disease.  Experimental studies are within scope, as are studies that describe methodological approaches to monitoring or manipulating nervous system function.

Valuable data often go unpublished when they could be helping to progress science. Hence, the BMC Series introduced Data notes, a short article type allowing you to describe your data and publish them to make your data easier to find, cite and share.

You can publish your data in BMC Genomic Data (genomic, transcriptomic and high-throughput genotype data) or in BMC Research Notes (data from across all natural and clinical sciences). 

More information about our unique article type can be found on the BMC Genomic Data and BMC Research Notes journal websites. 

Announcement

As a result of the significant disruption that is being caused by the COVID-19 pandemic we are very aware that many researchers will have difficulty in meeting the timelines associated with our peer review process during normal times.  Please do let us know if you need additional time. Our systems will continue to remind you of the original timelines but we intend to be highly flexible at this time.
