About this Research Topic
This Research Topic on Applied Neuroscience intends to promote the field of Applied Neuroscience, Psychophysiology and Electrophysiology. It also intends to raise the profile of the Society of Applied Neuroscience (SAN). SAN (www.applied-neuroscience.org) was established in Europe as an international society to investigate the potential applications of neuroscience, to promote research on validation and to encourage the multidisciplinary approaches in applied neuroscience. The scope of this research topic is to continue the successful initiative of the society to publish article collections with the best papers presented in its biennial meetings , as well as to establish a collaboration with Frontiers for publishing so the SAN meetings’ abstracts as well as Research Topics related to current and future meetings.
The foundational interest of SAN is brain electrophysiology, seen in the broader view of neuroscientific models of how the brain works neurophysiologically. In particular SAN promotes the translation of these electrophysiology-based models to the clinical practice via feedback techniques, via the application of external electrical or magnetic stimuli, and lately via the application of non-pharmaceutical interventions.
This Research Topic will include a wide range of themes that are important to SAN. More specifically the most promising articles that will be presented in the SAN 2016 meeting (http://applied-neuroscience.org/san2016/), regarding methodology, modeling, theory, applications, as well as reviews related to: EEG/MEG/fMRI/fNIRS, QEEG, biofeedback, neurofeedback, TMS, DCS, neuronal reorganization, rehabilitation, brain computer interfaces, brain connectivity, event-related potentials, inverse solution, cognition, emotion and aging will be welcomed to contribute to this Research Topic.
SAN believes that this Research Topic will offer a substantial contribution to the wider neuroscientific community by (a) bringing together the leading scientists and presenting the latest advancement of applied neuroscience, (b) directing the research focus into open themes of the field and (c) serving as a hub for knowledge transfer, guidance and inspiration as well.
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.
