The journal Translational Brain Rhythmicity is an open access journal with comprehensive peer review policy and a rapid publication process.

TBR is a novel, highly innovative and progressive journal that will focus upon our understanding of brain rhythmicity and dysrhythmia under physiological and pathophysiological conditions respectively. The latter includes for example neuropsychiatric disorders, neurodegenerative diseases etc. Studies presented are not restricted to the mammalian or human brain but can also include CNS rhythmicity studies on brains or nervous systems of other taxa as long as they contribute to the overall understanding of highly differentiated CNS structures, neural circuitry rhythmicity and oscillations. The journal is dedicated to translation of molecular, cellular and systemic neural experimental approaches from animal models to human neurological and neuropsychiatric diseases. Methodologically, the journal is not only limited to cellular and systemic electrophysiological in-vitro and in-vivo techniques, but also to molecular, genetic and behavioral approaches that are related to brain rhythmicity. We also publish clinical trial results of CNS drugs that exhibit modulation of brain dysrhythmia. Methodological papers that accelerate our understanding of brain rhythm are also welcome.

TBR will provide a unique platform in today's scientific and medical literature to serve as an international forum for the healthcare and scientific communities worldwide to understand how neuronal cells, neuronal ensembles and higher organized neuronal structures communicate properly and how aberrant neuronal communication results in neurological and psychiatric disease phenotypes.

TBR will feature original research, review papers, clinical studies, editorials, expert opinion and perspective papers, commentaries, book reviews and meeting reports.

TBR welcomes direct submissions from authors: Attach your word file with e- mail and send it to submissions@oatext.com alternatively to editor.tbr@oatext.com

Please, follow the Instructions for Authors. In the cover letter add the name and e-mail address of 5 proposed reviewers (we can choose them or not).

Welcome Note

It is a pleasure to help promote Translational Brain Rhythmicity as a vehicle for neuroscientists interested in the language of the brain.  Neural oscillations were the first type of brain activity detected by the EEG almost 100 years ago.  Almost 50 years ago, intrinsic membrane oscillations were described.  Brain rhythms are manifested at several levels of the neuraxis and at a number of frequencies, all subserving a host of functions from sensory binding to motor pattern generation, from sleep and consciousness to memory consolidation, and more.  Virtually all neurological and psychiatric disorders bear some form of frequency dysregulation from physiological tremor to rest or intention tremor or chorea, from epilepsy to brain-computer interphases.  The list is endless so I hope that Translational Brain Rhythmicity will become a vehicle for all those interested in advancing the field in all of its different forms.
