Two Guest Editors will manage the peer-review process
for a special issue of a High-Impact, Peer-Reviewed
Neuroscience Journal

Two guest editors will manage the peer review process for the special issue that will capture the outcomes of Human Affectome Project. The guest editors will jointly author the introductory editorial in the special issue in Elsevier’s “Neuroscience & Biobehavioral Reviews”.

Christos Papadelis, PhD -_Assistant Professor of Pediatrics at Harvard Medical School and Research Associate of Boston Children's Hospital. Dr. Papadelis worked as Post-Doc Researcher in the Laboratory of Human Brain Dynamics at Brain Science Institute (BSI) of RIKEN, Japan, from 2005 to 2008, and in the Center for Mind/Brain Sciences (CIMeC) of University of Trento, Italy, from 2008 to 2011. He has ten years of experience in magnetoencephalography (MEG) technology with both adults and children and joined the Fetal-Neonatal Neuroimaging and Developmental Science Center (FNNDSC) at Boston Children's Hospital as an Instructor in Neurology. Dr. Papadelis managed the BabyMEG facility at Boston Children's Hospital, one of the very few MEG laboratories in the world fully dedicated to pediatric research. His research now covers a broad range of studies on neuroscience, clinical neurophysiology, and biomedical engineering and he has done extensive work in the study of emotional processing by using MEG in adults. Dr Papadelis is a Guest Editor for Biomedical Signal Processing and Control and the Frontiers in Human Neuroscience, and reviewer for more than 30 peer-reviewed journals such as Neuroimage, Brain Research, Journal of Sleep Research. Notably, his special issue in the Frontiers in Human Neuroscience was selected as a featured eBook from Frontiers Publisher; it gathered 20 peer-reviewed articles from 135 authors from all over the world and received more than 40,000 views.

Howard Casey Cromwell, PhD -_Co-Director of the J.P. Scott Center for Neuroscience, Mind & Behavior at Bowling Green State University, Dr Cromwell is involved in elucidating the physiological mechanisms that underlie emotional states and motivated action. His team studies how these processes develop using sensitive behavioral assays for maternal attachment and early social interactions. The laboratory is involved in both neural and endocrine studies looking at how early hormone development guides motivation and how endocrine disruption perturbs specific behaviors. He is also interested in the neural signals that integrate information related to rewards and outcome processing. The lab uses behavioral techniques and neural assays to relate action to physiology. Feeding, hunger, satiety and social systems are the main focus of the laboratory. Dr Cromwell served as one of the two Guest Editors for the special issue in Neuroscience & Biobehavioral Reviews, Volume 35, Issue 9 (October 2011) “Pioneering Research in Affective Neuroscience: Celebrating the Work of Dr. Jaak Panksepp”.

Neuroscience & Biobehavioral Reviews

This journal publishes review articles which are original and significant and deal with all aspects of neuroscience, where the relationship to the study of psychological processes and behavior is clearly established. Conversely, the journal will also publish articles whose primary focus deals with psychological processes and behavior, and which have relevance to one or more aspects of neuroscience. Submissions to the journal are actively encouraged which deal with topics not only in the more traditional areas, but also in neuropsychology, cognitive neuroscience, brain imaging, in vivo monitoring of the brain's electrical and biochemical activities, molecular biology, genetics and neurocomputation (i.e., whenever the reviews bring new insights into brain-behavior relations). 2014 Impact Factor 8.802
