Functional Neurology


HUMAN BRAIN PROJECT (HBP), a new mega-project of the EU (Future and Emerging Technologies, approximately 1.1 billion Euros), has been approved and announced this Monday 28, 2013. HBP faces an extraordinary challenge for modern sciences: to integrate available knowledge on the human brain in order to reconstitute its functioning in computo and in silico through advanced informatic plattforms. The goal is to understand brain functioning inner mechanisms, to find new cures for brain diseases, and to generate intelligent computers and robots.

Functional Neurology is an open acess journal. Users shall have the right to read, download, copy, distribute, print, search or link to the full text of articles.

It was founded in 1985; the journal is published in English and indexed in the main international databases of scientific literature: Journal Citation Reports, Neuroscience Citation Index, Science Citation Index-Expanded, Current Advances in Neuroscience, Medline-Index Medicus, PubMed, ProQuest, Embase-Excerpta Medica, Physicians’ Silverplatter Neurology, PsycINFO, Data Base “Medicine”, Research Alert, The Academy of Sciences of Russian, Google Scholar, Scirus, Scopus, Scimago
