Sensorimotor integration refers to the combination of different sources of sensory stimuli in a unique brain language, which transforms those stimuli into motor actions. The coordination of multi-sensory information and of the motor action is a fundamental aspect of the sensorimotor process. Current understanding about these processes assumes that sensorimotor integration is dependent upon physiological and cognitive processes of the individual, task difficulties and environment elements. Over the last 10 years the numbers of researchers about sensorimotor deficits in neurological disorders have been made significantly increase, however the deficits of sensorimotor integration in psychiatric disorders remain unkown. Some evidence demonstrates that a dysfunction in the integration of sensory information could result in an illusion of perception, i.e. the perception distortion of information. Specifically, the study of psychiatric disorders and its relationship with the sensorimotor integration process delineates how the brain assimilate and combines information and then transforms this integration into a motor response.
In this Research Topic, we wish to provide new information on research on sensorimotor integration and psychiatric disorders, highlighting the current and futures directions in research dedicated to the neural bases of sensorimotor integration and the sensorimotor deficits in some psychiatric disorders, such as Bipolar Disorder, Panic Disorder, Social Anxiety, Schizophrenia, Major Depression, Attention Deficit Hyperactive Disorder, Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder. We welcome original and review articles, as well as theoretical, opinion, methods, and modeling papers from both human and animal research disciplines.
