CALL FOR PAPER - special issue on "EFFECTS OF AGING ON LOCOMOTOR PATTERNS"

2022-08-02

The Brazilian Journal of Motor Behavior (BJMB) is a peer-reviewed, open-access journal published by the Brazilian Society of Motor Behavior (Sociedade Brasileira de Comportamento Motor - SOCIBRACOM). The BJMB accepts original contributions encompassing the multidisciplinary study of human movement throughout the lifespan, involving a broad range of topics related to the field of Motor Behavior like motor control, development and learning, movement disorders, clinical, theoretical and model studies.

 

Dr Paulo Cezar Rocha dos Santos and Dr Diego Orcioli Silva are handling a special issue on "EFFECTS OF AGING ON LOCOMOTOR PATTERNS". This special issue aims to organize scientific evidence on how healthy aging and age-related diseases affect locomotion in different contexts. Locomotion here is supposed to cover mobility performance, walking capacity, and different measures of gait (e.g., gait stability, variability, kinematics, muscle activation, synergies, cortical activation). We also encourage studies verifying task paradigms, multidimensional correlational gait studies, interventions focusing on gait rehabilitation and falls, and discussions of different levels of gait analysis in aging and age-related diseases.
