One of the many benefits of membership in the Society for Behavioral and Cognitive Neurology is a remarkable 67% discount on your subscription to the Society’s journal, “Cognitive and Behavioral Neurology” (CBN). The regular 2015 U.S. individual rate is $422/year (international $487). With the special discount, available only to Society members, you’ll receive this unique journal for only $140. You can also get a 30% discount on subscriptions to related journals published by Wolters Kluwer Health.
If you are not yet familiar with CBN, let me explain how it can enhance your practice and research.
CBN is a forum for advances in the neurologic understanding and possible treatment of disorders that affect thinking, learning, memory, communication, and behavior. The journal addresses research, patient care, education, and professional advancement, from the perspectives of neurology, cognitive neuroscience, neuropsychology, neuropsychiatry, and other relevant fields. Many papers are written by Society members.
Each quarterly issue presents experimental and observational studies and case reports as well as review articles, first-person accounts of neurologic experiences, hypotheses, position and opinion papers, commentary, historical perspectives, book reviews, instructional articles for interested students and professionals in other fields, and innovative articles that do not fit neatly into any category. The flexibility in formats and the unlimited article length allow publication of thought-provoking work that might not find another venue.
