Sensory neuroscience

Open for submissions


How are sensory inputs detected and processed by the nervous system? Neurons in sensory regions of the brain respond to stimulus presentation by firing nerve impulses, but questions remain about how this information is decoded. The field of sensory neuroscience explores the mechanisms underlying sensory perception and cognition. Utilising multidisciplinary molecular, cellular, and physiological approaches, research is focussed on understanding the processes that control the signal transduction in sensory organs which generate complex neural networks and establish behavioural patterns.

This Neuronal Signaling themed collection on Sensory neuroscience aims to investigate the function of neural modules and networks and their relationships with sensory systems. Areas of interest in this collection include but are not limited to sensory systems such as vision, hearing, olfaction, balance, and pain, and developmental and sensory disorders including nerve injury, hearing loss, and chronic pain. We invite the submission of original research articles, reviews, and perspective pieces on this topic for publication in this themed collection.

This Neuronal Signaling themed collection, will be Guest edited by:

Dr. Michelle Roche, University of Galway
Dr. Jennifer Donegan, Dell Medical School at The University of Texas at Austin

We look forward to receiving your excellent submissions and please do not hesitate to contact the Editorial Office for any additional information.
