The Neuropsychological Trends publishes original contributions to scientific
knowledge in neuropsychology and neuroscience, and it provides an interdisciplinary
forum on new trends on neuropsychology and psychophysiology. There is a growing
dissatisfaction with fragmentation in theoretical perspectives on neuropsychology
and without doubt there is a felt need for a journal containing articles which
aim to integrate these fragmented ideas, theories and methods. We place particular
emphasis on the fact that informed discussion of neuropsychology needs to be interdisciplinary.
The journal aims to introduce new ideas on the field of biological bases
of behaviour and of the neurological perspectives applied to psychological processes.
Specifically it intends to offer an ample space for innovative research methodologies
and new theoretical views on the neuropsychological discipline. Methodological
discussion will constitute a main topic of the journal. Specific attention will
be given to the development of new theories and/or research methodologies applicable
to group and single-case studies.
The journal is interested in basic and
applied research and aims at opening up new avenues for the understanding, explaining,
and treatment of neuropsychological issues. Specifically, Neuropsychological Trends
will consider articles from any area of neuropsychological and neuroscience research,
including, but not limited to: cognitive neuropsychology, clinical neuropsychology,
neurophysiology, psychophysiology, and research techniques (fMRI; ERPs, PET).
The main topics proposed are:
and perception consciousness
— methodology of research (electroencephalography;
brain imaging; behavioural measures)
