Frontiers in Neural Circuits is a Specialty Journal of Frontiers in Neuroscience. Frontiers in Neural Circuits is a first-tier electronic journal devoted to understanding the emergent properties of neural circuits. The local circuits (microcircuits) constitute the elementary modules of the brain, while the global circuits (macrocircuits) connect these modules into brain regions. The gigantic connectivity matrixes forming these micro- and macrocircuits are still poorly understood, and the general rules by which these complex circuits operate are still a mystery. Major challenges are to understand the structural and functional architecture of these neural circuits and how their particular designs lead to the emergence of complex properties and behaviors. Articles revealing the anatomy, physiology and pharmacology of any neural circuitry in any species, ranging from sponges to humans, are welcome. Our common thread is the study of the computational strategies used by different circuits. Specifically, we seek to link a circuit structure with its function (either perceptual, motor, or internal). Submissions focusing on the principles and importance of synaptic, cellular and connectivity diversity in neural microcircuits using multidisciplinary approaches are particularly encouraged. We also welcome studies with an evolutionary perspective to better understand how circuit design and capabilities changed to produce progressively more complex properties and behaviors. The journal is also interested in research revealing how plasticity shapes the structural and functional architecture of neural microcircuits.
