In a rapidly developing field like neurobiology, students need to learn how to keep up with the most recent advances. Several journals and review series often include articles about topics in neurobiology that students will find useful. In addition, topical searches of the catalogs of your local library and of internet resources can turn up recent specialty volumes, journal articles, and reviews on specific topics.
An increasing number of scientific journals that publish original research articles and review articles are available on the internet, often through institutional subscriptions maintained by your college or university library. Because access methods vary widely, you should consult with your local reference librarian for information about how to access on-line journals at your institution. When you perform searches using PubMed, links will appear along with the abstract if a specific article is freely available via the internet.
Below is a list of some specific sources that cover material relevant to Neurobiology: Molecules, Cells, and Systems.
Annual Reviews, Inc. publishes yearly volumes in several scientific disciplines. Articles relevant to neurobiology are commonly found in: Annual Review of Neuroscience, Annual Review of Physiology, Annual Review of Biophysics and Biomolecular Structure, Annual Review of Biochemistry, and Annual Review of Cell Biology.
Current Opinion in Neurobiology publishes monthly issues, each organized around a particular theme. Articles are brief and emphasize recent findings.
Physiological Reviews is a periodical published by the American Physiological Society. Articles are usually long and comprehensive reviews a special topics, and issues frequently include coverage of cellular and molecular neurobiology.
Scientific American publishes well-illustrated reviews written primarily for a general readership. These articles often provide a good starting point for further reading.
Trends in Neurosciences presents brief, up-to-date reviews on very specific topics. Again, these articles are usually good starting points for more in-depth reading. Other "Trends in ..." series (Trends in Biochemical Sciences, Trends in Cell Biology, and Trends in Pharmacological Sciences) sometimes include articles of interest to neurobiologists.
