Cognitive Neuropsychology aims to promote the investigation of human cognition that is based on neuropsychological methods including brain pathology, recording, stimulation, brain imaging or the study of developmental deficits. The research can involve brain-lesioned or neurologically-intact adults, children or non-human animals as long as it uses neural data to make explicit contributions to our understanding of normal human cognitive processes and representations. Cognition is understood broadly to include the domains of perception, attention, decision-making, executive control, planning, language, memory and action.
In addition, the journal is now accepting submissions in the area of Translational Cognitive Neuropsychology. This section of the journal promotes research that is motivated by cognitive theory and in which the novel contribution is primarily of clinical significance. The research must have relevance to theories of cognitive processing and representation and significantly advance understanding of the diagnosis, treatment or neural bases of cognitive deficits.
Cognitive Neuropsychology is currently the only journal in which the focus is the investigation of human cognition informed by neural data.
