About this Research Topic
Let us celebrate the achievements of LGBTQ+ and allied researchers in human neuroscience and work to create a more inclusive and supportive environment for all scientists to excel. By embracing diversity and valuing the unique perspectives and experiences of all individuals, we can create a more vibrant and successful scientific community.
Therefore, Frontiers in Human Neuroscience is proud to offer this Research Topic to promote the work of LGBTQ+ and allied neuroscientists across all aspects of Human Neuroscience research related to LGBTQ+ topics, but particularly on the following themes:
• Neuroscientific studies investigating the possible relationship between brain structure/function and sexual and gender identities, both in healthy and clinical populations, by using a variety of methods (e.g. neuropsychology, neuroimaging, neurostimulation)
• Investigations on various aspects of cognitive, affective, and social neuroscience including samples of or primarily relevant to LGBTQ+ people
• Clinical neuroscience for LGBTQ+ people, such as neuroscientific investigations of mental, physical, and social health of the LGBTQ+ community and studies of neurological populations and/or of healthcare professionals in the neuroscience field with primary relevance to LGBTQ+ people
• The voices of LGBT+ neuroscientists, including experiences in the workplace, academia, inclusivity, barriers to/promotors of career, etc.
• Studies addressing intersectionality between sexual/gender identity dimensions and a range of socio-demographic characteristics, such as age, sex, ethnicity and race, religion, disability, culture and language, and socio-economic status are particularly welcomed.
All types of articles will be considered.
This article collection is open for submissions across all sections of the journal.
