Scientists in the field of human cognition have conventionally viewed the mind as a computer distinct from the body; however, mental processes and bodily states are actually intertwined. As asserted by Lakoff and Johnson in their seminal work Philosophy in the Flesh (1999), reason is shaped by internal sensations from our bodies and external experiences via the neural structure of our brains. There is a growing body of compelling evidence supporting the claim that the human body is indeed a component of consciousness rather than a servant of the mind. Nonetheless, a comprehensive understanding of mental functioning in real life will require a highly detailed analysis of the interactions between the mind and body. This Special Issue of Sensors focuses on the mind–body interactions elicited by exposing subjects to natural stimulation or prompting subjects to perform sensory-guided movements. Innovative work from the perspectives of cognition or methodology is acceptable. Preferably, analysis is based on signals from at least two devices, such as EEG in conjunction with ECG and respiration, or fNIRS in conjunction with GSR. Topics that are applicable to clinical, sport, education, or health settings are of particular interest.

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 papers will be 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. Sensors is an international peer-reviewed open access semimonthly 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.
