Journal of Cellular Neuroscience https://www.scipublications.com/journal/index.php/jcn <p>The <em>Journal of Cellular Neuroscience</em> is a peer-reviewed scientific journal dedicated to publishing research related to the cellular and molecular mechanisms underlying the function and dysfunction of the nervous system. The primary aim of the journal would be to provide a platform for researchers and scholars in the field of neuroscience to publish their latest research and insights on the cellular and molecular approaches to studying the nervous system.</p> <p> </p> <p>The scope of the journal would be broad and would cover a wide range of topics related to cellular neuroscience. Some of the specific areas of interest that the journal would cover include, but are not limited to:</p> <p> </p> <p>Neural development and differentiation</p> <p>Synaptic transmission and plasticity</p> <p>Ion channels and receptors</p> <p>Neurotransmitter systems</p> <p>Neurodegeneration and neuroprotection</p> <p>Neural stem cells and regeneration</p> <p>Cell signaling pathways</p> <p>Neuroimmunology and neuroinflammation</p> <p>Neural circuits and networks</p> <p>Novel techniques and methods for studying cellular and molecular neuroscience</p> <p> </p> <p>The journal would welcome original research articles, reviews, mini reviews, and hypothesis on these and other topics related to cellular neuroscience. The primary focus of the journal would be on the cellular and molecular mechanisms underlying normal and pathological neural function, but the journal would also welcome research that has broader implications for neuroscience or that involves the development or application of novel techniques or methods.</p> <p> </p> <p>The <em>Journal of Cellular Neuroscience</em> would aim to provide a forum for researchers and scholars to share their latest findings and insights in the field of cellular neuroscience and to contribute to the advancement of our understanding of the nervous system. The journal would provide a high-quality publication venue for researchers in the field and would help to foster collaboration and communication among researchers and scholars in the field of neuroscience.</p> <p> </p> <p><strong>Types of Articles:</strong></p> <p> </p> <p>The <em>Journal of Cellular Neuroscience </em>would welcome a variety of article types, including:</p> <p> </p> <p><strong><em>Research articles</em></strong>: These articles would typically be between 4,000 and 8,000 words, not including references, tables, and figures. They would be expected to report new and significant findings in the field of cellular neuroscience, including original data, new techniques or methods, or new insights into established areas of research. Original research articles should be well-structured and clearly written, with a focus on the experimental design, methods, and results.</p> <p> </p> <p><strong><em>Review articles</em></strong>: These articles would typically be between 6,000 and 10,000 words. They would provide a comprehensive overview of a particular topic in the field of cellular neuroscience, be well-researched and up-to-date, and provide an analysis and synthesis of existing research on the topic. The journal would also welcome mini reviews, which would be shorter and more focused than traditional review articles.</p> <p> </p> <p><strong><em>Hypothesis</em></strong>: These articles would typically be between 2,500 and 4,000 words, not including references, tables, and figures. They would present a new hypothesis or idea related to the cellular and molecular mechanisms underlying the nervous system, and could be based on existing research or present a new and innovative idea. Hypothesis articles should be well-argued and clearly written, and should provide a compelling case for the proposed hypothesis.</p> <p> </p> <p><strong><em>Editorial</em></strong>: Editorial articles would not be subject to the peer-review process, but would be reviewed by the editorial board to ensure that they meet the high standards of the journal. Editorial articles would provide an opportunity for the editors of the journal to express their opinions and ideas, and to engage with the wider community of researchers and scholars in the field of cellular neuroscience.</p> <p> </p> <p>In conclusion, the <em>Journal of Cellular Neuroscience</em> would aim to provide a high-quality publication venue for researchers in the field and would help to foster collaboration and communication among researchers and scholars in the field of neuroscience. Overall, the journal would be an important resource for researchers and scholars in the field of neuroscience and would contribute to the advancement of our understanding of the nervous system.</p> en-US Journal of Cellular Neuroscience Novel Approaches to Address the Dual Challenges of Neurodegeneration and Aging https://www.scipublications.com/journal/index.php/jcn/article/view/649 <p>Neurodegeneration and aging are pressing issues with significant personal, economic, ethical, and social consequences. However, the underlying biological mechanisms of these conditions remain largely unknown, making the development of effective treatments challenging. The difficulty in early detection and diagnosis of neurodegenerative diseases further compounds the issue. Recent advancements in genetics, genomics, and brain imaging technology hold great promise for improving our understanding of neurodegeneration and aging, as well as the development of personalized medicine and new drugs and therapies. Addressing these challenges will require a multi-disciplinary and collaborative approach from researchers in various fields. This Special Issue offers valuable insights and perspectives on this critical area of research, which can help advance our understanding and improve the health and well-being of our aging population.</p> Chih-Wei Zeng Copyright (c) 2023 Journal of Cellular Neuroscience 2023-03-03 2023-03-03 1 2
