Mathematical Neuroscience and Applications |

**Mathematical Neuroscience and Applications** is an international journal that publishes research articles on the mathematical modeling and analysis of all areas of neuroscience, *i.e.*, the study of the nervous system and its dysfunctions. The focus is on using mathematics as the primary tool for elucidating the fundamental mechanisms responsible for experimentally observed behaviours in neuroscience at all relevant scales, from the molecular world to that of cognition. The aim is to publish work that uses advanced mathematical techniques to illuminate these questions. Papers that introduce and help develop those new pieces of mathematical theory which are likely to be relevant to future studies of the nervous system in general and the human brain in particular are also welcome.

It publishes full length original papers, rapid communications and review articles. Papers that combine theoretical results supported by convincing numerical experiments are especially encouraged but any paper that will encourage exchange of ideas between mathematics and neuroscience applications will be considered.

The journal Mathematical Neurosciences and Applications uses a Diamond Open Access model. We provide free Open Access, thanks to the support of episciences.org. This means there is immediate access to the final, published, version of accepted articles, and no charge to readers. Unlike Gold Open Access we also do not charge authors to publish in the journal: there is no Author Processing Charges (APC). In this way we can address the needs and interests of scientists working on mathematical neuroscience and it application, regardless of funding or location.

Mathematician and computer scientist Olivier Faugeras, from INRIA Sopiha Antipolis, talks on the creation of the journal Mathematical Neuroscience and Applications.
