The world's most-cited Multidisciplinary Psychology journal
Neuropsychology provides a platform for the dissemination of scientific literature on the association between cognitive impairment and its neural underpinnings (i.e. anatomo-functional abnormalities), aiming to describe cognitive and behavioral dysfunctions with neuropsychological assessments and neuroimaging methods.
The mission of this Specialty section is to shape the analysis of early biomarkers (such as behavioural, cognitive and neurological functions), the development of new standards for research and clinical practice and the development of new international guidelines to improve patients prognosis.
More in details, Neuropsychology investigates multi-system disorders among the elderly, neurodegenerative diseases (e.g. Alzheimer, Parkinson, Fronto-Temporal Dementia, Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis and Multiple Sclerosis) and Acquired Brain Injuries (both traumatic and vascular ones). Neurocognitive dysfunctions may also be taken into consideration with respect to cognitive-behavioral enhancement and rehabilitation, and to neuromodulation techniques.
Contributions may employ any available scientific methods, including tools, test batteries, and brain imaging techniques, without forgetting cognitive electrophysiology.
The submission of manuscripts on the following topics is particularly encouraged:
Interdisciplinary approaches and meta-analyses are particularly encouraged.

PMCID: all published articles receive a PMCID
Neuropsychology welcomes submissions of the following article types: Conceptual Analysis, Correction, Data Report, Editorial, General Commentary, Hypothesis and Theory, Mini Review, Opinion, Original Research, Perspective, Review, Specialty Grand Challenge and Systematic Review.
All manuscripts must be submitted directly to the section Neuropsychology, where they are peer-reviewed by the Associate and Review Editors of the specialty section.
Articles published in the section Neuropsychology will benefit from the Frontiers impact and tiering 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 Frontiers Focused Review - a tier-climbing 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 Psychology.
