Calls Closing in July 2019

  • 50 Years of Modeling Neural Activity: Celebrating Jack Cowan's Career
  • Closes July 1, 2019

    JNP has partnered with the organizers of the conference that occurred on May 11, 2018 to celebrate Jack Cowan's 50th anniversary at the University of Chicago. This call is for manuscripts (including reviews) related to presentations at the meeting as well as to recent developments in research on modeling activity patterns in neuronal networks.

    Submit your manuscript.


  • Modularity and Compositionality in Motor Control: Acknowledging Emilio Bizzi
  • Closes July 1, 2019

    JNP has partnered with the organizers of the workshop that occurred on May 5, 2018 to discuss the topics of modular organization of motor control architecture and compositionality in the coordination of complex actions and to acknowledge Emilio Bizzi's role in exploring these ideas. This call is for manuscripts (including reviews) related to discussion at the workshop as well as recent developments in research on modularity and compositionality in motor control.

    Submit your manuscript.


  • International Motoneuron Society
  • Closes July 1, 2019

    JNP is a sponsor of the 2018 International Motoneuron Society Meeting, which occurred on June 11–14, 2018 in Boulder, Colorado. As part of this sponsorship, the Journal will publish articles (including reviews) associated with presentations at the meeting, as well as papers from International Motoneuron Society members.

    Submit your manuscript.

     

     

     

    Calls Closing in January 2020

  • Society for the Neural Control of Movement
  • Closes January 1, 2020

    JNP is a sponsor of the 2019 Society for the Neural Control of Movement (NCM) Meeting, planned for April 23-27, 2019 in Toyama, Japan. As part of this sponsorship, the Journal will publish articles (including reviews) associated with presentations at the NCM meeting, as well as papers from NCM society members. All submissions will go through the normal peer review process. Note that all review manuscripts must be commissioned by the editor prior to submission.

    Submit your manuscript.


  • Auditory and Vestibular Efferents
  • Closes January 1, 2020

    This call is for original research and reviews that advance our current understanding of the function of the inner ear efferents in health and in pathological conditions. The aim is to discuss efferent synaptic mechanisms, effects on sensory afferent development and signaling, effects on behavior and higher order processing, and plasticity with sensory experience and pathology in different animal models and using new research tools (including imaging, stimulation, and recording techniques). This call is initiated by the Association for Research in Otolaryngology minisymposium “Inner Ear Efferents: Form and Function.” Note that this call is open to all research on the topics of auditory and vestibular efferents, not just to minisymposium attendees.

    Submit your manuscript.


  • Modulation of Dynamic Neural Networks: From Sensory Inputs to Motor Outputs
  • Closes January 1, 2020

    Dynamic neural networks allow organisms to adapt crucial behaviors based on sensory, environmental, and internal factors. This call is for manuscripts (including reviews) that explore aspects of neural networks at any level, from the roles of specific channels and neurotransmitters to the behavioral implications of neural networks. JNP is issuing this call in partnership with the organizers of the workshop “Dynamic Neural Networks: The Stomatogastric Nervous System.” This workshop occurred on November 2, 2018 at the University of San Diego. Note that this call is open to all research on the topic of neural network modulation, not just to workshop attendees.
