About this Research Topic
The main purpose of this Research Topic is to encourage conversation between basic and applied researchers to improve the current frameworks used to study the networks and the phenomenology of postural control. We welcome contributions in the form of original research papers, review articles, technical reports and commentaries focusing on theories and new methods for studying the control of posture, pertaining but not limited to the following sub-topics:
- Dual-tasking: cortical vs subcortical controls
- Emotional threat and fatigue impact
- Exergaming and virtual reality
- Non-invasive brain stimulation
- Wearable sensors/smart garments
- Neural imaging/EEG
- Machine learning applied to intervention
- Augmented visual and auditory FB and heading
Researchers involved in fundamental and clinical studies using neurophysiological and neuroimaging tools, including non-invasive brain stimulation, functional and structural MRI approaches, as well as computer modeling, are encouraged to contribute to this Research Topic.
Keywords: posture, postural research, distributed control, sensorimotor processes
