Elsevier launches new journal: Developmental Cognitive Neuroscience

Oxford, UK, 4 October 2010 Elsevier, a world-leading publisher of scientific, technical and medical information products and solutions, is pleased to announce the launch of a new journal, Developmental Cognitive Neuroscience. Published quarterly, print copies of the first issue will be available at the Society for Neuroscience 40th Annual Meeting, to take place in San Diego in November 2010.

''It is with a sense of excitement that we launch this new journal. This feeling reflects not only an excitement about the fieldthe rapidly expanding body of knowledge about brain developmentbut also an enthusiastic anticipation about the opportunities for this journal to contribute to the growth and maturation of the rapidly emerging field," said Professor Daniel Pine, Developmental Cognitive Neuroscience Editor.

Developmental Cognitive Neuroscience will publish theoretical and research papers on cognitive brain development, from infancy through childhood and adolescence to old age. It will cover neurocognitive development and neurocognitive processing in both typical and atypical development, including social and affective aspects. Appropriate methodologies for the journal will include, but are not limited to, functional neuroimaging (fMRI and MEG), electrophysiology (EEG and ERP), NIRS and transcranial magnetic stimulation, as well as other neuroscience approaches which are applied in animal studies, patient studies, case studies, post-mortem studies and pharmacological studies.

Sarah-Jayne Blakemore of University College London, Ronald Dahl of University of California, Berkeley, Uta Frith of University College London and Daniel Pine of National Institute of Mental Health will serve as the Journal's Editors.

Original research articles, review papers, opinion pieces and perspectives, and short communications will be accessible through ScienceDirect. Authors are encouraged to submit contributions on all types of neuroscience approaches which are applied in animal, patient, case, post-mortem and pharmacological studies.

The first Developmental Cognitive Neuroscience articles are now available on SciVerse ScienceDirect, as well as the first issue's Foreword and Editorial.

''Developmental Cognitive Neuroscience is not just a forum for fascinating science; it may yield the science that can alter the fate of millions of people at risk for our most disabling disorders. The need for this journal is urgent, the opportunity is great, and the time is right. All of us need Developmental Cognitive Neuroscience to be a great success. With all of our best ideas, it will be,'' said Thomas R. Insel, MD, Director, NIMH.
