EJN call for papers: The relevance of a philosophical toolkit to advance neuroscience

Organiser: European Journal of Neuroscience (EJN)


Event Dates: 30 Nov 2023

Registration Deadline: 30 Nov 2023

Neuroscientists share common interests with philosophers, but the two groups use very different approaches. Thus, the interdisciplinary exchange between neuroscientists and philosophers can broaden the conceptual toolbox of the individual scientist and allows cross-fertilization of these fields, leading to a more complete picture of the research problems.

This special issue seeks contributions from neuroscientists engaged in interdisciplinary exchanging with philosophers or exploiting philosophical methods and asks them to report, reflect on, and discuss their approaches and to illustrate the benefits and/or drawbacks.

Guest Editors: Ann-Sophie Barwich (University of Indiana, Bloomington, USA), Igor Branchi (Italian Institute of Health, Rome, Italy), Markus Kunze (Center for Brain Research, Medical University of Vienna, Austria), and Isabella Sarto-Jackson (Konrad-Lorenz Institute for Evolution and Cognition Research, Klosterneuburg, Austria).
