Nature Publishing Group is pleased to announce the newest addition to its portfolio, Neuropsychopharmacology Reviews. Considered the 13th issue of Neuropsychopharmacology, this collection of review articles will be published annually starting January 2008 and will be available for single issue purchase. Each issue will cover one topic throughout the year. For 2008, that topic will be neuroplasticity.

From bench to bedside, Nature Publishing Group approaches neuroplasticity from all areas – molecular, cellular, pharmacological, cognitive and clinical. View FREE of charge the below articles from a selection of our top rated journals:

  Neuropsychopharmacology Reviews, the 13th issue of Neuropsychopharmacology, brings all that you enjoyed in Generations of Progress and transforms it into a new collection of review articles like you’ve never seen before. Published annually beginning January 2008, the inaugural issue will cover neuroplasticity with more than twelve in-depth articles, complete with NPG-quality illustrations that can be downloaded into power point slides, in over 300 pages.

Neuropsychopharmacology Reviews will be available for single issue purchase for $74/£38/€59 starting December 2007, but there is no reason to wait. Visit journal online at and gain access to its articles instantly, months before they are available in print.
