Focus and Scope

Human Brain (2957-6296) endorses peer-reviewed cutting-edge research on the entire genre of neurological science and clinical neurology. This journal publishes preferably original data derived from post-mortem brains, surgically resected brain samples, living human subjects and in vitro models) using various approaches (e.g., histological, neuropathological, biochemical, molecular, informatics, brain imaging).  Clinical studies involving brain autopsy examination as the end measurement is much appreciated. Article formats include original research, case reports and systematic reviews, as well as technological innovations such as novel brain tissue processing for molecular localization, brain imaging analyses, proteomics, genomics and epigenomics studies.

The core emphasis of this journal is the study of human brain, focusing on the advances in understanding of human brain and brain disorders, and development of collaborative research platforms and database related to human brain.. For advances in understanding of human brain and brain disorders, and development of collaborative research platforms and database related to human brain.

Key research areas for this journal include but are not limited to:

  • Investigation of the mechanisms governing human brain functions and activities, including development, aging and disease.
  • Investigation of the pathogenesis of human brain disorders, including neurodegenerative diseases, brain vascular diseases, brain trauma, brain tumours, neuropsychological diseases, and other neurological diseases.
  • Clinical research with the emphasis on improving clinical practice of neurological diseases.
  • Biomarkers identification for human brain disorders, aging or development.
  • Neuroimaging research of ante- and postmortem human brain.
  • Clinical studies of human brain structure and function, especially with brain autopsy examination as the end measurement.
  • Novel processing methods for human brain tissue banking and research.
  • Standard operational protocol and management of human brain tissue bank.
  • Regional and international comparison study of human brain.
  • Presentations of databases and platforms for the research of human brain.
  • Cohort study of human brain functions and disorders.
