“It is with a sense of excitement that we launch this new journal. This
feeling reflects not only an excitement about the field-the rapidly expanding
body of knowledge about brain development-but also an enthusiastic
anticipation about the opportunities for this journal to contribute to the
growth and maturation of the rapidly emerging field,” said Professor Daniel
, Developmental Cognitive Neuroscience Editor.

Developmental Cognitive Neuroscience will publish theoretical and
research papers on cognitive brain development, from infancy through
childhood and adolescence to old age. It will cover neurocognitive
development and neurocognitive processing in both typical and atypical
development, including social and affective aspects. Appropriate
methodologies for the journal will include, but are not limited to,
functional neuroimaging (fMRI and MEG), electrophysiology (EEG and ERP), NIRS
and transcranial magnetic stimulation, as well as other neuroscience
approaches which are applied in animal studies, patient studies, case
studies, post-mortem studies and pharmacological studies.

Sarah-Jayne Blakemore of University College London, Ronald Dahl of
University of California, Berkeley, Uta Frith of University College London
and Daniel Pine of National Institute of Mental Health will serve as the
Journal’s Editors.

Original research articles, review papers, opinion pieces and
perspectives, and short communications will be accessible through
ScienceDirect. Authors are encouraged to submit contributions on all types of
neuroscience approaches which are applied in animal, patient, case,
post-mortem and pharmacological studies.

The first Developmental Cognitive Neuroscience articles are now available
on SciVerse ScienceDirect, (
http://www.sciencedirect.com/science/journal/18789293) as well as the first
issue’s Foreword and Editorial.

“Developmental Cognitive Neuroscience is not just a forum for fascinating
science; it may yield the science that can alter the fate of millions of
people at risk for our most disabling disorders. The need for this journal is
urgent, the opportunity is great, and the time is right. All of us need
Developmental Cognitive Neuroscience to be a great success. With all of our
best ideas, it will be,” said Thomas R. Insel, MD, Director, NIMH.
