About this Research Topic
This year, 2022, will mark the 90th Anniversary of one of the most notable Nobel Prize Awards in the field of Neuroscience presenting an opportunity to reflect on the progress made in our understanding of the basic mechanisms of neuron functioning and neural information processing. Frontiers in Neuroscience portfolio is proud to introduce the “90th Anniversary of the Sherrington and Adrian Nobel Prize” Research Topic series that will highlight state-of-the-art neuroscience research building on the foundational discoveries of Sir Charles Scott Sherrington and Prof. Edgar Douglas Adrian. The aim of this series is to spotlight current advances in the basic mechanisms of neuron function, action potential, signal integration, and transmission across the entire central nervous system to further our understanding of how the biological mechanisms and physiological properties on different organizational levels contribute to the global information processing.
This special edition Research Topic aims to highlight cutting-edge research progressing our understanding of action potential initiation and propagation mechanisms. This collection intends to serve as a basis to define the current advances in the field but also to summarize challenges in the field, define future inquiries and evaluate current and novel methodologies. The topic include, but are not limited to:
• Insights into the nature of the action potential
• Modulation of reflexes during behavior
Keywords: action potential
Important Note: All contributions to this Research Topic must be within the scope of the section and journal to which they are submitted, as defined in their mission statements. Frontiers reserves the right to guide an out-of-scope manuscript to a more suitable section or journal at any stage of peer review.
