Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues, 

Over the past three decades, our knowledge of scene perception and neuronal mechanisms underlying it has expanded dramatically. Taking advantage of neuroimaging techniques, multiple scene-selective areas have been discovered within the visual cortex of humans and non-human primates. Currently, many groups around the globe have focused their efforts on understanding the neuronal processing within these areas, and their mechanism of interaction with other sensory and/or association brain regions. With recent advances in the development of neuroimaging and data processing techniques and the introduction of large shared datasets, more ground-breaking findings are expected in the near future. To accelerate this process and to provide a medium for the experts in the field to share their findings and perspectives with others, we invite investigators to contribute to the upcoming special issue in the Journal of Integrative Neuroscience on “Neural mechanisms of scene perception”. Invited articles are not limited to neuroimaging studies in humans with normal vision. Rather, clinical studies, studies in animals, and those based on other techniques (e.g. psychophysics, even-related potentials, EcoG, single cell recording, etc.) are also welcomed. Manuscripts are expected to be submitted as either original research, case reports or reviews. All manuscripts will be peer-reviewed by experts in the field before acceptance for publication.

Manuscript Submission Information

Manuscripts should be submitted via our online editorial system at by registering and logging in to this website. Once you are registered, click here to start your submission. Manuscripts can be submitted now or up until the deadline. All papers will go through peer-review process. Accepted papers will be published in the journal (as soon as accepted) and meanwhile listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, reviews as well as short communications are preferred. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the Editorial Office to announce on this website.

Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts will be thoroughly refereed through a double-blind peer-review process. Please visit the Instruction for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. The Article Processing Charge (APC) in this open access journal is 1900 USD. Submitted manuscripts should be well formatted in good English.
