About this Research Topic
This volume contains research articles and reviews describing basic, pre-clinical and clinical neuroscience research of the basal ganglia written by attendees of the 11th Triennial Meeting of the International Basal Ganglia Society (IBAGS) that was held March 3-7th, 2013 at the Princess hotel, Eilat, Israel and by other researchers of the basal ganglia.
This volume follows the publication of the previous IBAGS meeting*. The first nine volumes were published conventionally as a volume in the Advances in Behavioral Biology series (The basal ganglia and The basal ganglia II-IX). Now, for the second time, IBAGS is taking full advantage of modern innovations in scientific publication and publishing IBAGS XI as a Research Topics issue of Frontiers in Systems Neuroscience. The issue will be available on-line and is fully indexed by searchable databases including PubMed.
Articles will include reports on the latest research on the biochemistry, computational theory, anatomy and physiology of single neurons and functional circuitry of the basal ganglia networks as well as the latest data on animal models of basal ganglia dysfunction and clinical studies in human patients.
Please send us an e-mail with your suggested title by June 1st, 2013. Manuscripts should be submitted by August 1st, 2013. We will do our best to speed the review and the editorial process, and to have all papers published together by Oct 1st, 2013.
