The journal will consider empirical and theoretical submissions in areas including but not limited to mechanisms and treatment of all neurological diseases and psychiatric disorders, behavioral and cognitive science, neuronal and glial cell biology, neurosurgery, neurophysiology, neuropharmacology, neuroimmunology, neuropathology, computational neuroscience, functional and structural neuroimaging, neurogenetics and psychiatric genetics, child and adolescent psychiatry, psychiatry of affective and cognitive disorders, epidemiology, emerging technologies and new research methods, translational research, neuropsychology, clinical psychology, and developmental, cognitive, and social psychology.

Brain and Behavior features original research articles, reviews, methods papers, editorials, and commentaries. Original research papers must report well-conducted research with conclusions supported by the data presented in the paper.
