About this Research Topic
Our primary objective with this Research Topic is to spotlight recent breakthroughs in Movement Science while emphasizing crucial directions and new avenues for future explorations. Through the publication of high-quality review papers, we aspire to foster dialogue and the dissemination of knowledge among the Movement Science community, with the ultimate aim of enhancing best practices within Movement Science settings. This Research Topic serves as an invaluable resource for researchers, practitioners, and educators in the field, providing an all-encompassing overview of the latest developments in Movement Science.
The scope of this collection encompasses a broad spectrum of topics within Movement Science. We welcome submissions of full-length, mini, or systematic review papers that contribute to the advancement of our understanding of human movement and its diverse applications. Potential themes include, but are not restricted to:
• Biomechanical Insights into Human Movement;
• Exploring cognitive and Psychological Aspects of Motor Control;
• Neuroscientific Approaches to Movement;
• Role of Movement, Physical Activity, and Exercise in Health and Disease;
• Developmental Perspectives on Movement and Sport;
• Technological Innovations in Movement Analysis, including Fitness Wearables;
• Influences of Stress in Performance, Movement and Physical Activity Behavior;
• Theoretical Debates in Movement Science;
• Artistic expression and Movement;
• Lifespan Motor Development;
• Motivation and Emotion in Physical Activity and Exercise;
• Cross-disciplinary approaches in Human Movement Science;
• Nutrition, training, and performance in sport and tactical populations (e.g., military, police, Exercise Movement Technique).
Information for authors: Please be aware that this research topic is cross-listed with multiple journals and sections. When submitting your manuscripts, please ensure that they fall within the scope of the journal and sections to which you are submitting. Should your manuscript fall outside the defined scope of the chosen section or journal, our team will promptly contact you to make the transfer to the corresponding journal /section.
Please know that the Exercise Physiology section only considers manuscripts that focus on the physiological mechanisms underlying the acute response to exercise as well as the adaptation to exercise from the molecular and cellular level to individual systems. Please see here. the scope statement of the section.
