    Male and female brain size in primates

    Larger brain size in males is a pattern persisting throughout primate and human evolution; new experiments suggest a major role for estrogen in down-regulating genes linked to brain size, resulting in the smaller female brain size.

Cerebellum & Ataxias is now accepting submissions

Cerebellum & Ataxias

Cerebellum & Ataxias, a new open access journal from BioMed Central, is now accepting submissions. Led by Editor-in-Chief Mario Manto, FNRS, Belgium, the journal hopes to mirror the success of its older, sister journal The Cerebellum, and complement its focus on the fundamental neurosciences of the cerebellum in providing a platform for more clinical cases and scientific reports of the numerous forms of ataxias.

BPDED is now accepting submissions

bpded

Borderline Personality Disorder and Emotion Dysregulation (BPDED), a new independent journal, is now accepting submissions with BioMed Central. Overseen by an expert Editorial Board, BPDED provides a platform for researchers and clinicians interested in borderline personality disorder as a currently highly challenging psychiatric disorder, and welcomes contributions investigating the broad field of emotion dysregulation.

Acta Neuropathologica Communicationshas launched

acta

Acta Neuropathologica Communications is a new BioMed Central journal, edited by Werner Paulus. The journal publishes experimental and descriptive papers on the pathology of nervous system and skeletal muscle disorders and on mechanisms of neurological disease using morphological, molecular and cell biology methods. This is the sister journal to Acta Neuropathologica, published by Springer, which is also edited by Werner Paulus.
