About this Research Topic
Research on SPS has grown rapidly in recent years. For example, studies have examined how neural responses mediate SPS, how it is related to temperament and mood disorders, and some of the outcomes associated with SPS. Thus, integration of this work is important, especially as it is growing rapidly with studies emerging around the globe, on various topics related to SPS and with varying measurement tools. In this Special Issue on “Sensory Processing Sensitivity Research: Recent Advances” we seek to bring together new studies in the field of SPS, to comment on what we have learned cumulatively, emergent themes, and gaps in the work that remain to be filled. Finally, we will bring together the new studies and will comment on how they contribute to advancing theoretical frameworks and practical knowledge related to SPS.
In this special, we seek to cast a wide net to highlight studies that advance our understanding of processes related to SPS, across the lifespan and from around the globe. We welcome papers from all fields, but specifically those that are in the domains of physiological and neural processes, emotion, personality, temperament, cognitive function, social processes, and the measurement of SPS.
