Special Issue "Advances in the Study of Anticipatory Postural Adjustments"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: 10 December 2023 | Viewed by 1353
Postural stability is critical to the execution of almost any voluntary movement.
Anticipatory postural adjustments (APAs) are feed-forward mechanisms initiated by the central nervous system (CNS) in response to expected postural disturbances, and that produce preemptive muscle responses to help maintain stability. APAs occur in both self- and externally-induced perturbations to posture and stability. This Special Issue of Brain Sciences aims to present a collection of papers detailing the most recent advancements in the understanding of APAs in both self- and externally-induced perturbations. Authors are invited to submit new research reports and reviews that address a broad range of topics related to APAs including, but not limited to neuroscience, psychology, motor control, locomotion, kinesiology, rehabilitation exercise, stability training, ageing, and movement deficits. I hope that this Special Issue will serve to foster a more complete understanding of APAs as well as to encourage pioneering research on these mechanisms.

Manuscript Submission Information
Manuscripts should be submitted online at www.mdpi.com by registering and logging in to this website. Once you are registered, click here to go to the submission form. Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline. All submissions that pass pre-check are peer-reviewed. Accepted papers will be published continuously in the journal (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as short communications are invited. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the Editorial Office for announcement on this website.
Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts are thoroughly refereed through a single-blind peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. Brain Sciences is an international peer-reviewed open access monthly journal published by MDPI.
Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. The Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal is 2200 CHF (Swiss Francs). Submitted papers should be well formatted and use good English. Authors may use MDPI's English editing service prior to publication or during author revisions.
