OBM Neurobiology is an international peer-reviewed Open Access journal published quarterly online by Open BioMedical Publishing Corporation. By design, the scope of OBM Neurobiology is broad, so as to reflect the multidisciplinary nature of the field of Neurobiology that interfaces biology with the fundamental and clinical neurosciences. As such, OBM Neurobiology embraces rigorous multidisciplinary investigations into the form and function of neurons and glia that make up the nervous system, either individually or in ensemble, in health or disease. OBM Neurobiology welcomes original contributions that employ a combination of molecular, cellular, systems and behavioral approaches to report novel neuroanatomical, neuropharmacological, neurophysiological and neurobehavioral findings related to the following aspects of the nervous system: Signal Transduction and Neurotransmission; Neural Circuits and Systems Neurobiology; Nervous System Development and Aging; Neurobiology of Nervous System Diseases (e.g., Developmental Brain Disorders; Neurodegenerative Disorders).

OBM Neurobiology publishes research articles, technical reports and invited topical reviews. Although the OBM Neurobiology Editorial Board encourages authors to be succinct, there is no restriction on the length of the papers. Authors should present their results in as much detail as possible, as reviewers are encouraged to emphasize scientific rigor and reproducibility.

OBM Neurobiology welcomes the following types of articles: original research, review, communication, opinion, case report, comment, conference report, technical note, book review, etc. There is no restriction on the length of the papers, color figures, supplementary file types. More details please see Instructions for Authors.

Biography of the Editor-in-Chief

Suni Hermes H. Yeh graduated from DePauw University in 1976, received his PhD in cell biology with a concentration in neuroscience from the University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center at Dallas in 1981, and trained at the National Institutes of Health as a staff fellow until 1984. He has served on the faculty at the University of Rochester School of Medicine and Dentistry, Wake Forest University School of Medicine, and the University of Connecticut Health Center. He is currently the William W. Brown Professor and Chair of the Department of Physiology and Neurobiology at Dartmouth Medical School.

Dr. Yeh’s research targets the cellular and molecular mechanisms of neurotransmitter receptor interactions and their plasticity in the adult and developing CNS. Ongoing research projects employ behavioral, neuroanatomical, patch clamp electrophysiological and molecular
biological techniques to investigate in a variety of transgenic mouse models: (1) neurotransmitters as developmental signals; (2) radial and tangential migration of cortical neurons during embryonic corticogenesis; and (3) functional maturation of neurons and neural circuits. A particular focus is on how ethanol consumption during pregnancy affects neuronal migration in the fetal cortex, and on uncovering the cellular and molecular underpinnings of the indelibly altered form and function of the cortex and its resident neurons consequent to aberrant migration. Dr. Yeh has served continuously on numerous NIH study sections since 1990; he recently stepped down as Chair of the Developmental Brain Disorders Study Section and is currently a chartered member of the Neurotoxicology and Alcohol Study Section. Dr. Yeh has also taught actively in the medical school and graduate school curricula, and has had leadership roles in directing graduate education and training at the institutional and national levels.
