The concept of "review article" is separate from the concept of peer-reviewed literature. It is possible for a review to be peer-reviewed, and it is possible for a review to be non-peer-reviewed.
Review articles are the summary of current state of understanding on a particular research topic. They analyze or discuss research previously published by scientist and academicians rather than reporting novel research results.
Neurophysiology review article comes in the form of systematic reviews and literature reviews and are a form of secondary literature. Systematic neurophysiology reviews determine an objective list of criteria, and find all previously published original research papers that meet the criteria. They then compare the results presented in these papers. Neurophysiology literature reviews, by contrast, provide a summary of what the authors believe are the best and most relevant prior publications.
