    Neuropsychiatric Electrophysiology is now accepting submissions.

    Neuropsychiatric Electrophysiology (NPEP) will provide a venue for researchers and clinicians interested in the applications of electrophysiological techniques for probing basic electrophysiological aberrations in neuropsychiatric disorders.

    Led by Editor-in-Chief Dr Nash Boutros (University of Missouri-Kansas City), NPEP will span basic neuroscience theory, technology and methodology, as well as clinical research and practice, with a focus on moving electrophysiology laboratory findings from the bench to bedside. The journal is supported by an expert Editorial Board, and is the latest addition to our portfolio of psychiatry journals.
