50 Years of Modeling Neural Activity: Celebrating Jack Cowan's Career

Call opens: July 1, 2018

Jack Cowan has played an important role in the development of mathematical modeling of neuronal networks. His research and mentorship have contributed to the formulation of the Wilson-Cowan equations, the application of bifurcation theory to neural modeling, and a variety of statistical approaches in mathematical neuroscience. Journal of Neurophysiology is partnering with the organizers of a conference that occurred on May 11, 2018 to celebrate Jack Cowan's 50th anniversary at the University of Chicago. This call is for manuscripts (including reviews) related to presentations at the meeting as well as to recent developments in research on modeling activity patterns in neuronal networks.

All manuscripts should be submitted online via eJournalPress. During the online submission process, under the “Keywords & Special Sections” tab, please use the “Category” drop-down menu and select “Call for Papers: 50 Years of Modeling Neural Activity: Celebrating Jack Cowan's Career.

Manuscripts will undergo normal peer review as they are received. Note that all review manuscripts must be commissioned by the editor prior to submission. Accepted manuscripts will be published online as they are accepted. Articles published from this Call for Papers will be highlighted at the time of publication.

Manuscripts can be submitted anytime, but to be eligible for inclusion in this Call for Papers, manuscripts must be submitted by June 30, 2019.
