Hebb 70

To celebrate the 70th Anniversary of the publication of Donald Hebb’s seminal work, The Organization of Behavior, the Editors-in-Chief of Molecular Brain are inviting submissions to the newly launched Hebb 70 series.

The series is to run in conjunction with the Hebb 70 Meeting, organized by the Association for the Study of Neurons and Diseases. Taking place between 23rd and 26th June 2019, the meeting covers the themes of Synapses, Engrams and Synapses & Disease.

Molecular Brain welcomes submissions relevant to these Hebbian themes.  Articles can take the form of Reviews, Original Research or Micro Reports, and should be submitted through the journal's online submission system by 30th November 2019.

  1. Accumulating evidence implicates dysregulation of hippocampal synaptic plasticity in the pathophysiology of depression. However, the effects of ketamine on synaptic plasticity and their contribution to its mec...

  2. The synapse is typically viewed as a single compartment, which acts as a linear gain controller on incoming input. Traditional plasticity rules enable this gain control to be dynamically optimized by Hebbian a...

  5. N-methyl-d-aspartate receptors (NMDARs) are excitatory glutamatergic receptors that are fundamental for many neuronal processes, including synaptic plasticity. NMDARs are comprised of four subunits derived from h...
