Dear FieldTrip-community,

In collaboration with Frontiers in System Neuroscience, Dr. Alberto Cacciola, Dr. Andrea Canessa, Dr. Serena Ricci, and I (Dr. Elisa Tatti) are organizing a collection of articles (Research Topic) titled: "The Role of Brain Oscillatory Activity in Human Sensorimotor Control and Learning: Bridging Theory and Practice".

Details can be found under the following link:

The Role of Brain Oscillatory Activity in Human Sensorimotor Control and Learning: Bridging Theory and Practice | Frontiers Research Topic<https://www.frontiersin.org/research-topics/31669/the-role-of-brain-oscillatory-activity-in-human-sensorimotor-control-and-learning-bridging-theory-an>
Brain oscillatory activity, synchronized rhythmic patterns of electrical activity detectable with invasive (e.g. ECoG, DBS) and non-invasive (e.g. EEG, MEG) brain recording techniques, play a central role in regulating neuronal communication. As such, brain rhythms sustain cognitive, perceptual, and motor functions, and are altered in several neurological and neuropsychiatric disorders ...

Our goal is to collect high-level manuscripts from international experts, who will tackle the issue from different points of view, with the main aim to create an e-Book compilation.

Thus, contributions from different scientific fields (e.g. clinical, neuroscientific, engineering) are particularly desired for this research topic; indeed, gathering all-round evidence on sensorimotor functioning can ultimately provide a comprehensive perspective on the topic and bridge the gap between different theories and practice.

Any original research and review article on human sensorimotor control and learning based on EEG, MEG, NIBS, Neurofeedback, and BCI techniques in healthy subjects and patients is welcome alongside research in animal models and computational work. Studies focusing on the following areas are particularly of interest:

• Brain oscillatory correlates of sensorimotor control, learning, and re-learning in healthy and clinical populations. This includes basic motor control (e.g. brain oscillatory correlates of a finger tapping task), sensorimotor adaptation and learning studies, as well as complex rehabilitative/training studies.

• NIBS and neurofeedback protocols targeting sensorimotor rhythms to enhance motor performance and recovery in clinical and healthy populations (including elderly, professional musicians, sport science, surgical and medical training).

• Recent advancements in the development and application of non-invasive EEG-based Brain Computer Interfaces and other technical solutions based on EEG/MEG signal for clinical (e.g. control of prosthetic and robotic systems) and non-clinical purposes

If you are a researcher working on motor control and learning, please consider contributing a paper to this Research Topic. All submissions will undergo rigorous, fast, and fair peer review.

The manuscript deadline is currently set to 18th May 2022.

Please do let us know if you are interested in submitting a paper as we would like to keep track of potential contributions.

If you are unable to submit a paper for this Special Issue, please support us by forwarding this note to colleagues who might be interested.

Please note that manuscripts accepted for publication are subject to publication fees, but rest assured that the Editorial Office is ready to discuss alternative options with you.

Please feel free to contact me (elisatatti at msn.com) or the Frontiers Editorial Office (systemsneuroscience<http://goog_212839280/>.editorial.office at frontiersin.org<mailto:systemsneuroscience.editorial.office at frontiersin.org>) any time for further information.

We are looking forward to hearing from you.

Best regards,

Elisa Tatti
