Experimental Physiology publishes research papers that report novel insights into homeostatic and adaptive responses in health and pathophysiological mechanisms in disease. We welcome papers that embrace the journal’s orientation of translation and integration, which includes studies of the adaptive responses to exercise, acute and chronic environmental challenges, growth and aging, and diseases where integrative homeostatic mechanisms play a key role in the response to and evolution of the disease process. Examples of such diseases include hypertension, heart failure, hypoxic lung disease, endocrine and neurological disorders. Manuscripts that report the use of bioinformatic, genomic, molecular, proteomic and cellular techniques to provide novel insights into integrative physiological and pathophysiological mechanisms are welcomed.

We are also interested in methodological papers reporting important new developments in physiological techniques that could lead to significant new insights.

Papers which observe a significant new physiological behaviour or phenomenon which has the potential to alter the understanding of that field, but which have not yet identified the mechanisms may also be considered.

Such papers should demonstrate experimentally examination and exclusion of a number of plausible mechanisms for the important novel phenomenon.
