Overview

Neurology is a special branch of medical Sciences that deals primarily with the disorders in the central nervous system. Neurophysiology is a union of both neurology and physiology and it studies the functioning of the nervous system.

The Journal of Neurology and Neurophysiology (JNN) prioritizes the study of central nervous system and its function, connected to translational science, neurology, neurobiology, psychology, neuroanatomy, electrophysiology, cognitive sciences and its relation to brain sciences. It is a scientific journal that deals with the diagnosis and treatment of all categories of diseases involving central, peripheral and autonomous nervous system. It is a scholarly publishing journal, where the editorial office follows a rapid peer review process for acquired articles to avail quality protocol on publishing the submitted manuscripts.

JNN is a scholarly Open Access journal that aims to publish most complete and reliable source of information on the discoveries and current novel developments in the mode of original articles, review articles, case reports, short communications, etc. while making them freely available through online without any restrictions or any other subscriptions to researchers worldwide.

The journal process articles through Editorial Manager System for quality publication. Editorial Manager is an online manuscript submission system which reviews and processes the articles and facilitates author, editor and reviewers to work simultaneously with easy review strategies and protocols. Review process is executed by the editorial board members of JNN or outside experts; at least two independent reviewer’s approval is mandatory followed by editor approval is required for acceptance of any citable manuscript. . Authors may submit manuscripts and track its progress through this system. Reviewers can download manuscripts and submit their opinions to the editor. Editors can manage the whole submission/review/revise/publish process.

 

Submit Manuscript

Authors are requested to submit manuscripts at http://www.editorialmanager.com/pharma/ or send as an e-mail attachment to the Editorial Office at editor.jnn@omicsonline.org

Neurosurgery

Neurosurgery is the medical specialty concerned with the prevention, diagnosis, treatment, and rehabilitation of disorders which affect any portion of the nervous system including the brain, spinal cord, peripheral nerves, and extra-cranial cerebrovascular system.

Neurological disorders

Neurological disorders are diseases of the brain, spine and the nerves that connect them. There are more than 600 diseases of the nervous system, such as brain tumors, epilepsy, Parkinson's disease and stroke as well as less familiar ones such as front temporal dementia.

Epilepsy

Epilepsy is a kind of neurological disorder characterized by long periods of vigorous shaking known as epileptic seizures. There are different types of epilepsy and seizures. Epilepsy drugs are prescribed to control seizures, and rarely surgery is necessary if medications are ineffective. Generalized seizures, focal seizures and petit mal seizures are the types of seizures through which the doctor can identify the type of neurological disorder.

Stroke

A stroke is a "brain attack” which can be treated as medical emergency. Strokes happen when blood flow to your brain stops. When this happens, brain cells are deprived of oxygen and begin to die. Ischemic stroke, Hemorrhagic stroke and transient ischemic attacks are the types of strokes.

Traumatic Brain Injury

Traumatic brain injury (TBI) is a complex injury with a broad spectrum of symptoms and disabilities. Traumatic brain injury usually results from a violent blow or jolt to the head or body. An object penetrating the skull, such as a bullet or shattered piece of skull, also can cause traumatic brain injury.

Limbic system

The limbic system is a complex set of structures that lies on both sides of the thalamus, just under the cerebrum.  It includes the hypothalamus, the hippocampus, the amygdala, and several other nearby areas.  It appears to be primarily responsible for our emotional life, and has a lot to do with the formation of memories. 

Spinal cord

The spinal cord is the most important structure between the body and the brain. The spinal cord extends from the foramen magnum where it is continuous with the medulla to the level of the first or second lumbar vertebrae. It is a vital link between the brain and the body, and from the body to the brain.

Neuroendocrinology

Neuroendocrinology is the study of the interaction between the nervous system and the endocrine system, including the biological features of the cells involved, and how they communicate. The nervous and endocrine systems often act together in a process called neuroendocrine integration, to regulate the physiological processes of the human body.

Pituitary

The pituitary is an important gland in the body and it is often referred to as the 'master gland', because it controls several of the other hormone glands. It is usually about the size of a pea and consists of two parts - a front part, called the anterior pituitary and a back part, called the posterior pituitary.

Spine surgery

With any surgery, there is the risk of complications. When surgery is done near the spine and spinal cord, these complications can be very serious. Complications could involve subsequent pain and impairment and the need for additional surgery. You should discuss the complications associated with surgery with your doctor before surgery.

Hypothalamus

The hypothalamus is a section of the brain responsible for the production of many of the body’s essential hormones, chemical substances that help control different cells and organs. The hormones from the hypothalamus govern physiologic functions such as temperature regulation, thirst, hunger, sleep, mood, sex drive, and the release of other hormones within the body.

Neural model

Neural modeling field is a mathematical framework for machine learning which combines ideas from neural networks, fuzzy logic, and model based recognition. It has also been referred to as modeling fields, modeling field’s theory, Maximum likelihood artificial neural networks.

Hippocampus

The hippocampus is the part of the brain that is involved in memory forming, organizing, and storing. It is a limbic system structure that is particularly important in forming new memories and connecting emotions and senses, such as smell and sound, to memories. The hippocampus is a horseshoe shaped paired structure, with one hippocampus located in the left brain hemisphere and the other in the right hemisphere.

Hypothalamus

The hypothalamus is a section of the brain responsible for the production of many of the body’s essential hormones, chemical substances that help control different cells and organs. The hormones from the hypothalamus govern physiologic functions such as temperature regulation, thirst, hunger, sleep, mood, sex drive, and the release of other hormones within the body.
 

Related Conference

OMICS International organizes 300+ conferences every year across USA, Europe & Asia with support from 1000 more scientific societies and publishes 400+ scholarly open access journals which contains over 30000 eminent personalities, reputed scientists as editorial board members.

Journal of Neurology & Neurophysiology is supporting 3rd International Conference and Exhibition on Neurology & Therapeutics which is going to be held during September 08-10, 2014, at Philadelphia, USA with the respective theme “Novel Therapies in Neurosciences and Neurological Disorders”.
