Editorial published in the Journal of Applied Neurosciences
AOSIS is pleased to announce that the first editorial was recently published in the Journal of Applied Neurosciences: Strengthening applied neuroscience networks: A quest for interdisciplinarity. This work was authored by the Editor-in-Chief of the journal, Professor Dirk J. Geldenhuys.
An Excerpt From the Editorial
Breakthroughs in neuroscience, caused by advances in sophisticated imaging technology, compelled scholars and practitioners to realise the important role of neuroscience in generating new knowledge to understand the functioning of the human brain. As the brain controls all aspects of human functioning, from our heartbeat and breathing to engaging with very complex tasks, neuroscience provides us with the neurological and other biological underpinnings of all human behaviours such as cognition, emotions, relationships and bodily activities. However, as most of the research in neuroscience is done in laboratories, neuroscience on its own does not offerus enough knowledge to understand and change human behaviour. Human beings do not live in laboratories, but interact with their environment as complex, self-organising systems. Therefore, we need knowledge of both neuroscience and our core disciplines. Combining neuroscience with our respective disciplines provides us with an extensively more integrated and holistic perspective on human behaviour and guidelines for optimal functioning – an important aspect that was neglected since Freud moved away from the biological routes of psychology. Applying neuroscience thus provides us with much more than another toolkit, and it helps us to become more rigorous and relevant as practitioners.

About The journal
With neuroscience and biology as the underpinning of all human behaviour, an increasing need developed for the translation of neuroscience research in other fields of study and practice. This journal serves as a vehicle for the scientific translation and application of neuroscience and other biological underpinnings of human behaviour, in the contexts of psychotherapy, psychology and clinical practice, business, education, spirituality and religion, and sport.
