Dear Colleagues,

[We apologize if you have received multiple copies of this message]
We would like to draw your attention to the special volume on
"Applications of Operations Research for Neuroscience" in the Annals of
Operations Research.

We cordially invite researchers in neuroscience who use operations
research methods and related mathematical fields to contribute to this
special issue. 

Recent technological and theoretical advances offer promising
opportunities for better understanding of the nervous system at the
quantitative level. New optogenetic, in vitro and in vivo
multielectrode recording, neuroimaging, brain imaging, and other modern
techniques provide high-quality data that can be used in elucidating
the fundamental mechanisms of information processing in neural system.
The rapidly growing pool of experimental data has triggered the
development of new mathematical models, which can provide new insights
into the functioning of the nervous system at various scales ranging
from that of molecular biology to that of the organizational principles
of behavior and cognition. Sophisticated analyses of intracellular
signalling or dynamics in heterogeneous neural networks, conditional
behavior or connections of brain regions in decision-making lead to
theoretical problems addressed by operations research.

The special volume will cover a broad range of topics in the field of
neuroscience, which use operations research approaches and methods.
Potential topics include, but are not limited to, the following areas
of neuroscience:
 * intracellular signaling and regulation
 * synaptic plasticity
 * dynamics in heterogeneous neural networks
 * intelligent systems and control
 * perceptual, cognitive and behavioral functions
 * learning and memory
 * spatio-temporal network analysis
 * combinatorial optimization
 * signal and information processing
 * neuroimaging and functional brain imaging processing
 * computational modelling and simulation
The use of methods from modern operations research is a prerequisite
for any paper submitted to this special volume to enter the reviewing

Extended submission deadline of full papers:  October 1, 2015.
