Neuroscience of Response Inhibition: Bridging Scales with Experiments and Computational Modelling

Response inhibition is the ability to override a planned or an already initiated response. It is the hallmark of executive control, because it allows people to flexibly adjust their behavior according to their goals. In everyday life, there are many examples of response inhibition, such as stopping yourself when you are about to cross a street where a speeding car is approaching. Response inhibition deficits favor impulsive behaviors which may be detrimental to an individual’s life and it has been linked to disorders such as attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder, obsessive-compulsive disorder, schizophrenia, and substance abuse disorders.

In this Research Topic, we welcome papers critically evaluating the existing methods of response inhibition, introducing new experimental and theoretical approaches that probe particular parts of brain circuitry and unravel neuronal mechanisms as candidates of impulse control. We welcome scientists from different fields: from neuroscience of microcircuits to systems neuroscience of large-scale networks and behavioural
neuroscience. The work can be experimental or computational. Commentaries and reviews on innovative key issues of response inhibition are also welcome.

While the scope of possible relevant topics is broad, the authors are encouraged to clearly indicate how their studies address the announced theme of response inhibition.

Frontiers reserves the right to guide an out-of-scope manuscript to a more suitable section or journal at any stage of peer review.
