New Brain Connectivity Journal Captures Latest Advances in Neuroscience Research

New Rochelle, NY—Mary Ann Liebert, Inc. announces the release of a new peer-reviewed journal in an expanding area of systems neuroscience, Brain Connectivity. This timely new journal is positioned to become the premier source of cutting-edge basic and clinical neuroscience research aimed at better understanding of structural and functional connections in the brain and how these connections are altered by neurological disorders. Brain Connectivity will be published 6 times a year by Mary Ann Liebert, Inc. (http://www.liebertpub.com). A full description of the Journal is available online (http://www.liebertpub.com/brain).

The well-timed launch of this groundbreaking journal coincides with the introduction of a new neuroscience initiative, The Human Connectome Project, funded by $40 million in research grants from the National Institutes of Health. The Human Connectome Project is a major effort to map all the brain connections in about 1,000 human subjects in the United States using current imaging technology. Researchers will be able to access human connectome data through an interactive website. Brain Connectivity will be at the forefront of connectomics research and will follow the progress of the Human Connectome Project and other similar initiatives worldwide.

Brain Connectivity will give scientists and clinicians access to the most recent findings in the rapidly advancing field of connectivity research at the systems and network levels. The Journal will disseminate information on brain mapping, modeling, novel research techniques, and the translation of research discoveries from the laboratory to the clinic. Special emphasis will be placed on the underlying physiology and anatomy of brain connectivity in both human and animal models. This valuable resource will foster the application of basic biological discoveries and contribute to the development of novel diagnostic and therapeutic interventions to recognize and treat a broad range of neurodegenerative and psychiatric disorders such as Alzheimer’s disease, attention-deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD), epilepsy, traumatic brain injury, stroke, dementia, and depression.

“The field of brain connectivity research is rapidly expanding, and the launch of this new journal, Brain Connectivity, will fill a big need in the field,” says Christopher Pawela, PhD, founding and co-editor-in-chief of Brain Connectivity and an assistant professor at the Medical College of Wisconsin. Bharat Biswal, PhD, an associate professor at the University of Medicine and Dentistry of New Jersey, shares the roles of founding and co-editor-in-chief with Dr. Pawela.  

Brain Connectivity will be the journal of record for researchers and clinicians interested in all aspects of brain connectivity. It will include original peer-reviewed papers, review articles, point-counterpoint discussions on controversies in the field, and a product/technology review section.
