Special Issue Information
The Special Issue, “Brain Activity in Sports and Exercise”, is a new venue to publish original research, meta-analysis, reviews, and brief reports related to this topic. By taking advantage of the rapid advancements in neuroimaging techniques and subsequent creation of the field of Cognitive Neuroscience, the field of Kinesiology/Exercise Science has adopted these techniques and paradigms to provide insight into the activity of the brain relative to sports and exercise. This collection aims to publish research on this emerging area and may include techniques, such as EEG; ERP; NIRS; fMRI; FMS; tDCS; DTI; PET; TCLS, etc. We are interested in articles that bring new theoretical and practical approaches to the field.
