Frontiers of Neuroscience - Neurodevelopment publishes rigorously peer-reviewed research on the assembly and refinement of brain circuits in health and disorders during prenatal and early postnatal life. Specialty Chief Editor Michela Fagiolini at Boston Children’s Hospital, Harvard Medical School is supported by an outstanding Editorial Board of international experts. This multidisciplinary open-access specialty section is committed to bringing impactful discoveries and perspective to researchers and public worldwide.
Neurodevelopment focuses on high-quality basic, translational, and clinical research across the fundamental mechanisms mediating proliferation, migration, differentiation, circuit formation, refinement, and neuron/glia interaction during development. Studies focused on molecular, cellular, synaptic, and neuronal network circuit principles using multidisciplinary approaches are strongly encouraged. We are further interested in interdisciplinary translational research encompassing experimental models and human studies to address the mechanisms underlying onset and progression of neurodevelopmental and neuropsychiatric disorders.
Areas covered by this section include, but are not limited to:
All studies must contribute new insights into neurodevelopmental processes. Reports addressing pure technical approaches do not fall within the scope of this section and should be submitted to more specialized journals.
