Sensorimotor processing and goal-directed movement
Research in sensory processing and motor control have traditionally followed parallel but independent paths. Recent work, however, has highlighted the importance of studying both as parts of an integrated sensorimotor system rather than as separate processing modules in the brain. On the one hand, task demands of natural motor behaviors play a critical role in shaping sensory computations. On the other hand, constraints on sensory processing determine optimal motor control strategies. Researchers from both vision and motor control have now begun to apply computational and experimental methods to the interface between perception and action. This is evidenced by a number of international workshops that have recently been organized on this topic and by the over eighty presentations in the last five years devoted to sensorimotor coordination at the Vision Sciences Society conference.
In response to these developments, the Journal of Vision invites papers for a special issue on sensorimotor processing, with special emphasis on how vision in conjunction with other sensory modalities is used to plan and control hand movements.
Suggested topics for submission include, but are not limited to
Multi-sensory integration for motor planning
Feedback control of hand movements
Applications of statistical decision theory to goal selection and planning
Sensorimotor learning and adaptation
Computational models of sensorimotor control
Neurophysiological mechanisms of sensorimotor control
Effects of neurological deficits on sensorimotor control
