A novel methodology to describe neuronal networks activity reveals spatiotemporal recruitment dynamics of synchronous bursting states

We propose a novel phase based analysis with the purpose of quantifying the periodic bursts of activity observed in various neuronal systems. The way bursts are intiated and propagate in a spatial network is still insufficiently characterized. In …

Dysfunctional mode switching between fixation and saccades: collaborative insights into two unusual clinical disorders

Voluntary rapid eye movements (saccades) redirect the fovea toward objects of visual interest. The saccadic system can be considered as a dual-mode system: in one mode the eye is fixating, in the other it is making a saccade. In this review, we …

The unknown but knowable relationship between Presaccadic Accumulation of activity and Saccade initiation

The goal of this short review is to call attention to a yawning gap of knowledge that separates two processes essential for saccade production. On the one hand, knowledge about the saccade generation circuitry within the brainstem is detailed and …

Comparison of neuronal responses in primate inferior-temporal cortex and feed-forward deep neural network model with regard to information processing of faces

Feed-forward deep neural networks have better performance in object categorization tasks than other models of computer vision. To understand the relationship between feed-forward deep networks and the primate brain, we investigated representations …


Effects of subthalamic deep brain stimulation on fixational eye movements in Parkinson’s disease

Miniature yoked eye movements, fixational saccades, are critical to counteract visual fading. Fixational saccades are followed by a return saccades forming squarewaves. Present in healthy states, squarewaves, if too many or too big, affect visual …

Über diese Zeitschrift

The Journal of Computational Neuroscience provides a forum for papers that fit the interface between computational and experimental work in the neurosciences. The Journal of Computational Neuroscience publishes full length original papers, rapid communications and review articles describing theoretical and experimental work relevant to computations in the brain and nervous system. Papers that combine theoretical and experimental work are especially encouraged. Primarily, theoretical papers should deal with issues of obvious relevance to biological nervous systems. Experimental papers should have implications for the computational function of the nervous system, and may report results using any of a variety of approaches including anatomy, electrophysiology, biophysics, imaging, and molecular biology. Papers investigating the physiological mechanisms underlying pathologies of the nervous system, or papers that report novel technologies of interest to researchers in computational neuroscience, including advances in neural data analysis methods with the potential to yield insights into the function of the nervous system, are also welcomed. It is anticipated that all levels of analysis from cognitive to cellular will be represented in the Journal of Computational Neuroscience. However, papers that are primarily devoted to new methods or analyses should demonstrate their utility for the investigation of mechanisms or principles of neural function.

Neuroscience Peer Review Consortium
The Journal is pleased to be a member of the Neuroscience Peer Review Consortium (NPRC), an alliance of neuroscience journals that have agreed to share manuscript reviews at the author's request.
