Call for Papers: The Brain and Electrochemistry

Focus IssuesSubmit your manuscripts to the Journal of The Electrochemical Society (JES) Focus Issue on The Brain and Electrochemistry, Honoring R. Mark Wightman and Christian Amatore by March 11, 2018.

This focus issue of the JES is devoted to work at the juncture of electrochemistry, the brain, and the nervous system.

The issue will provide a forum for the discussion of research and developments on how the central (CNS) and the peripheral nervous systems (PNS) can be viewed and studied in terms of electrical circuits and electrochemical sensors, reactions and methods. This issue, as well as the The Brain and Electrochemistry symposium held at the 232nd ECS Meeting in October 2017, was inspired by the works of Christian Amatore from the Ecole Normale Supérieure and Mark Wightman from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. They dedicated their careers to this topic, trained and influenced countless researchers over the years.

Contributions are solicited related, for example, to topics including:

  • unresolved questions in brain function and neurological dysfunction
  • CNS and PNS monitoring and different ways to activate the nervous system including electrical neurostimulation, optogenetics, magnetogenetics and other novel approaches
  • simulation and modeling of neural circuits
  • electrochemical sensors, measurements and methods of neurochemistry
  • novel neural interfaces materials stability and biocompatibility of implantable devices

All papers published in this focus issue will be OPEN ACCESS at NO COST to the authors! *

Submission Deadline | March 11, 2018
