Royal Society Publishing regularly attends scientific meetings to exhibit our journals, meet our authors, editors and readers and answer questions about our content, publishing policies or the Royal Society.
We’ll be at booth A-08 at IBRO 2019 and would love to meet you, and keep reading for an extra special reason to visit our stand!
The 10th World Congress of Neuroscience (International Brain Research Organization; IBRO 2019) will be held between 21st – 25th of September, 2019 at EXCO Convention Center, Daegu, Korea. Held every four years, the IBRO World Congress is now one of the most prestigious international scientific meetings. This year’s congress is organised in collaboration with Federation of Asian-Oceanian Neuroscience Societies (FAONS) and will provide a unique opportunity for participants to share the latest information and knowledge in the diverse areas of the brain research and neuroscience.
Over the years, Royal Society journal Open Biology has published a number of research and review articles across neuroscience. This year, we published a special collection of articles celebrating neuroscience from the National Academy of Taiwan, Academia Sinica, in effort to promote excellent research from around the world. To commemorate this year’s program at IBRO 2019, we are pleased to present a selection of papers in line with the congress symposia:
Neurobiological bases of behaviour
- Pigment-Dispersing Factor-expressing neurons convey circadian information in the honey bee brain
- Neural basis of hunger-driven behaviour in Drosophila
Disorders of the nervous system
- Understanding intellectual disability and autism spectrum disorders from common mouse models: synapses to behaviour
- Synaptic dysfunction in neurodegenerative and neurodevelopmental diseases
- Wnt signalling in the development of axon, dendrites and synapses
- Sphingolipids: membrane microdomains in brain development, function and neurological diseases
Glia, glia-neuron interactions
- Neuron–glia crosstalk in health and disease: fractalkine and CX3CR1 take centre stage
- Axon death signalling in Wallerian degeneration among species and in disease
- The role of astrocytes in amyloid production and Alzheimer’s disease
- Phosphorylation of Parkin at serine 65 is essential for its activation in vivo
- Implications of dimeric activation of PDE6 for rod phototransduction
Sensory and Motor Systems
- Beyond being innervated: the epidermis actively shapes sensory dendritic patterning
- Insights into GABAAergic system alteration in Huntington’s disease
Homeostatic and neuroendocrine systems
- Autocrine, paracrine and necrotic NMDA receptor signalling in mouse pancreatic neuroendocrine tumour cells
- A state-of-the-art perspective on microgliopathic pain
- Opportunities and challenges of circulating biomarkers in neuroblastoma
We know it can be a challenge for researchers to know what journal editors might be looking for and the topic areas that will attract our interest. If you’re looking for a journal that’s the right fit for your research then do come along and talk to us. With a broad scope, we’re able to cover a variety of topics.
Whether you are an editor, reviewer, author or prospective author, we look forward to seeing you at the IBRO Congress. The Open Biology Publishing Editor will be at A-08 – please stop by for a chat during the exhibition hours 9am – 6pm.
We look forward to telling you more about the benefits of publishing in Open Biology (fast decision times and our open research policies) or in our sister journals Proceedings B, Biology Letters, and Philosophical Transactions B.
You will also be able to find out about our author services, get more information on how to become a reviewer or editor for one of our journals, and receive exclusive offers for delegates. There is even a competition to win one of our historical and exciting Royal Society Prints! We hope to see you in person and online at #IBRO2019.
Open Biology is a peer-reviewed open access scientific journal published by the Royal Society and welcomes submissions in neuroscience at the molecular and cellular levels. Find out more about our author benefits and submission process.
