About this Research Topic
This Research Topic calls for contributions on physical training induced brain structure and function plasticity in normal population or the population with special training like athletes or dancers. The studies are expected to be based on neuroimaging techniques including but not limited to functional magnetic resonance imaging, Electroencephalography, near infrared reflectance spectroscopy, and diffusion tensor imaging, and contributions on the influence of interventions to brain are highly encouraged. In this Research Topic, we proposed two types of practice, one is physical exercise, the other is movement-based mental training. All these studies would enrich our understanding of neural mechanisms underlying healthy behaviors as well as the association between mind, body and brain, and offer new insights for developing possible behavioral practice interventions in subjects with neurological or mental dysfunction.
Important Note: All contributions to this Research Topic must be within the scope of the section and journal to which they are submitted, as defined in their mission statements. Frontiers reserves the right to guide an out-of-scope manuscript to a more suitable section or journal at any stage of peer review.
