High quality research articles and critical reviews in all areas
of Computational Neuroscience are sought for publication in PSYCOLOQUY, 
a refereed electronic journal sponsored by the Science Directorate of
the American Psychological Association (see below for additional 
information on the journal and submission guidelines). 

Topics of interest in Computational Neuroscience include,
but are not limited to:

1. Computational Models of Simple Neural Systems
2. Computational Models of Adaptation in Neural Systems
3. Computational Models of Memory in Neural Systems
4. Computational Models of Learning in Neural Systems  
5. Computational Models of Perception in Neural Systems 
6. Computational Models of Cortex
7. Computational Models of the Hyppocampus
8. Computational Models of Attention in Neural Systems 
9. Computational Models of Emotion
10. Computational Models of Spatial Representations in Neural Systems
11. Computational Models of Temporal Representations in Neural Systems
13. Computational Models of Self-Organization in Neural Systems
14. Computational Models of Control and Self-Regulation in Neural Systems
15. Computational Models of Neural Plasticity and Development
16. Computational Models of Symbolic Processing in Neural Systems
17. Computational Models of Signal Transduction in Neural Systems
18. Computational Models of Damage-Resistance in Neural Systems
19. Computational Models of Neural Substrates of Language
20. Computational Models of Anatomy of Neural Systems
21. Computational Models of Physiology of Neural Systems 
22. Computational Models of Single Neurons
23. Computational Models of Neural Microcircuits
24. Computational Models of Neural System Modules
25. Computational Models of Multi-Modal Sensory Integration in Neural Systems  
26. Computational Complexity and Performance Issues in Neural Systems 
27. Continuous, Discrete, and Hybrid Computation in Neural Systems
28. Simulation Environments for Computational Neuroscience Research
29. Computing Environments for Computational Neuroscience Research
30. Computational Models of Signalling and Communication in Neural Systems

Submissions to Psycoloquy in Computational Neuroscience must discuss 
theoretical or experimental computational models of biological neural systems.
"Computational models" are to be interepreted broadly to include abstract
mathematical, statistical, system-theoretic, information-theoretic, algorithmic,
connectionist, simulation, hardware, and qualitative models. 
Papers dealing primarily with engineering aspects of artificial neural systems 
are not particularly appropriate unless they also discuss the implications
of the work for models of biological neural systems.

                    PSYCOLOQUY CALL FOR PAPERS

 PSYCOLOQUY is a refereed electronic journal (ISSN 1044-0143) sponsored
 on an experimental basis by the American Psychological Association.
 PSYCOLOQUY publishes brief reports of ideas and findings in the
 biobehavioral and cognitive sciences on which the author wishes to
 solicit rapid international and interdisciplinary peer feedback. 
 All contributions are refereed by members of PSYCOLOQUY's Editorial Board.

 Target articles should normally not exceed 500 lines in length,
 commentaries and responses should not exceed 200 lines. All target
 articles must have (1) a short abstract ( < 100 words), (2) an indexable
 title, (3) 6 - 8 indexable keywords, and the (4) author's full name and
 institutional address. The submission should be accompanied by (5) a
 rationale for soliciting commentary (e.g., why would commentary be
 useful and of interest to the field? what kind of commentary do you
 expect to elicit?) and (6) a list of potential commentators (with their
 email addresses). Commentaries must have indexable titles and the
 commentator's full name and institutional address (abstract is optional).

 Authors of accepted manuscripts assign to PSYCOLOQUY the right to
 distribute the text electronically and to archive and make it
 permanently retrievable electronically. However, they retain the
 copyright, and after it has appeared in PSYCOLOQUY authors may
 republish their text any way they wish -- electronic or print -- as
 long as they clearly acknowledge PSYCOLOQUY as its original locus of
 publication. Except in very special cases, agreed upon in advance,
 articles that have already been published or are about to be published
 elsewhere are not eligible to be considered for publication in
