is a specialty section of Frontiers in Neurology, Frontiers in Neuroscience and Frontiers in Psychiatry.
The section is devoted to studies of brain-machine interfaces (BMI) and neuroprostheses, and aims at bringing together the most outstanding work on neuroprosthetics to develop and explore neuroprosthetic devices and strategies in humans and animals, including basic research which applies BMI methodologies to study the neural and behavioral mechanisms underlying sensorimotor learning and behavior. The section will consider original research articles on neuroprosthetics in all relevant areas including the physiological, biophysical and behavioral principles of neuroprosthetic devices, and their theoretical, experimental and clinical applications. The section will also publish work on the mathematical and physical algorithms and technological and medical innovations related to neuroprosthetics. Neuroprosthetics
welcomes review articles that synthesize knowledge on various aspects of neuroprosthetic approaches and also perspective and opinion articles that discuss and debate hot topics in neuroprosthetics.
welcomes submissions of the following tier 1 articles
: Book Review, Clinical Case Study, Clinical Trial, Data Report, Editorial, General Commentary, Hypothesis & Theory, Methods, Mini Review, Opinion, Original Research, Perspective, Protocols, Review, Specialty Grand Challenge and Technology Report.
All manuscripts must be submitted directly to the section Neuroprosthetics
, where they are peer reviewed by the associate and review editors of the specialty section.
Articles published in the section Neuroprosthetics
will be subject to the Frontiers evaluation system
after online publication. Authors of published original research with the highest impact, as judged democratically by the readers, will be invited by the Chief Editor to write a prestigious Frontiers Focused Review
- a tier 2 article. This is referred to as "democratic tiering
". The author selection is based on article impact analytics of original research published in all Frontiers specialty journals and sections. Focused Reviews are centered on the original discovery, place it into a broader context, and aim to address the wider community across all of Neurology, Neuroscience and Psychiatry.
