New Journal: Brain Stimulation

It is seldom that a new journal is started. About this journal

BRAIN STIMULATION aims to be the premier journal for publication of original research in the field of neuromodulation. The journal includes: a) original articles (up to 5,000 words); b) brief reports (up to 2,000 words); c) invited and original reviews; d) technology and methodological perspectives (reviews of new devices, description of new methods, etc.); and e) letters to the Editor. Special issues of the journal will be considered based on scientific merit.

The scope of BRAIN STIMULATION extends across the entire field of brain stimulation, including noninvasive and invasive techniques and technologies that alter brain function through the use of electrical, magnetic, radiowave, or focally targeted pharmacologic stimulation. This includes investigations that study the effects of brain stimulation on basic processes, such as gene expression and other aspects of molecular biology, neurochemical regulation, functional brain activity, sensorimotor function, and cognitive and affective processes at the systems level.

The journal seeks the highest level of research on the biophysics and biopsychophysics of stimulation paradigms as well as the use of these techniques as a probe to outline patterns of neural connectivity. As an equal partner with this basic emphasis, the journal will have strong representation of research on the therapeutic potential and adverse effects of the stimulation technologies. The inclusion of research in therapeutics will represent not only clinical trials, but also conceptual pieces, discussions of ethics as they pertain to this field, services research, etc.

Another journal to watch.

I have an assignment going on which i have to do a paper on brain stimulation. I found the site which has this book but unfortunately i need a ID and password to log in. I was wondering if u are kind enough to email me the articles if u have them? I am doing Bachelor of Psychology in a local university in Malaysia. It would be so helpful if you could do so.
