Bong-Kiun Kaang

Bong-Kiun Kaang
“The brain is the most complex structure in the universe, yet it defines who we are. Molecular Brain is a fast, open access, online journal that publishes high quality papers and thus promotes communication among neuroscientists interested in revealing the mysteries of brain function at the molecular and cellular level.”

Min Zhuo

Min Zhuo
Molecular Brain provides open access publications for neuroscientists. We are especially interested in novel studies using molecular, cellular and integrative experimental approaches. We promise fast and fair review of each manuscript.”

Tim Bliss

Tim Bliss
“It is our goal at Molecular Brain to offer a rapid and open access forum for papers that illuminate the molecular mechanisms underpinning the cellular, network and cognitive aspects of brain function. There is no field in 21st century science that is advancing with such astonishing rapidity, and we hope that Molecular Brain will reflect this excitement.”
