Time to move: Brain dynamics underlying natural action and cognition

Eur J Neurosci. 2021 Dec;54(12):8075-8080. doi: 10.1111/ejn.15562.


Advances in Mobile Brain/Body Imaging (MoBI) technology allows for real-time measurements of human brain dynamics during every day, natural, real-life situations. This special issue Time to Move brings together a collection of experimental papers, targeted reviews and opinion articles that lay out the latest MoBI findings. A wide range of topics across different fields are covered including art, athletics, virtual reality, and mobility. What unites these diverse topics is the common goal to enhance and restore human abilities by reaching a better understanding on how cognition is implemented by the brain-body relationship. The breadth and novelty of paradigms and findings reported here positions MoBI as a new frontier in the field of human cognitive neuroscience.

Keywords: EEG; MoBI; cognition; mobility.
