Special Issue "Symmetry in Cognition and Emotion"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (31 March 2022) | Viewed by 8225
Cognition and emotion rely on a rich network of brain structures, traditionally mapped to the differential contribution of the right and left hemispheres for a variety of functions such as attention, learning, memory, social behaviour, face processing, and decision making. More recently, emphasis has also been placed on the contribution of top-down and bottom-up processes in cognition and emotion.
Research reports on brain-behaviour asymmetries in top-down and bottom-up processes in cognition and emotion will be well accepted for this Special Issue of Symmetry. Furthermore, papers including electrophysiology, neuroimaging, and biochemical estimations of brain asymmetry will be particularly relevant. Reports on brain-behaviour asymmetries in clinical populations are also accepted, and so will reviews and theoretical debates of the asymmetric brain contribution to cognition and emotion.

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.
