    Special issue "Control of Gait and Posture: a tribute to Professor Lilian T. B. Gobbi"

     

    Description

    The goal of this special issue is to discuss the control of gait and posture to make a tribute to Professor Lilian Gobbi. Considering that much of her life was spent in understanding the control of gait and posture, the present special issue will discuss cutting-edge studies that address aspects related to gait and posture, such as mobility and balance performance, kinematics, kinetics, muscle activity, and brain activity analysis, in usual and adaptative conditions. To enhance our understanding of the control of gait and posture, we encourage studies related to neurological diseases (e.g., Parkinson's disease, Alzheimer's disease, etc), aging effects, skeletal-muscle disorders, fatigue, intervention and rehabilitation focusing on gait and posture, and also theoretical hypotheses for the control of gait and posture, such as brain control and perception aspects.

    Special issue on the Effects of aging on locomotor patterns

    Description

    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, and 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.

    Special Issue on The Role of Practice in Motor Skill Acquisition

    Description

    In this special issue, papers provide a comprehensive and thoughtful analysis of motor learning theories and processes (cognitive, perceptual, and motor mechanisms) emphasizing how different levels of analysis are changed during practice, leading to the acquisition of new motor skills.

    Special Issue on Fifteen Years of Brazilian Journal of Motor Behavior

    Description

    This is an important date considering the importance of BJMB contributing to disseminating important knowledge and the researchers’ work in the motor behavior area. The BJMB was launched with its first edition published in December of 2006. Thus in 2021, we are celebrating the 15th anniversary of BJMB.

    Articles in the present special issue discuss changes in the motor behavior area in these past 15 years, argue about theoretical paradigms in motor development, motor learning, and motor control, show interesting findings related to walking and eye movements, and explore new ways for teaching in the motor behavior area. As a result, here is a rich combination of themes related to motor behavior presented in 14 articles disclosed in this commemorative issue.

    Special issue on COVID-19 (coronavirus disease): Impacts on motor behavior

    Description

    The COVID-2019 pandemic is a highly pathogenic viral infection that changed drastically daily life, including social distancing as a major preventive measure. Millions of lives have been significantly altered, and a global, multi-level, and demanding stress-coping-adjustment process is ongoing. The changes in routine may impact motor behavior, requiring a flexible adaptation to new circumstances, which includes tele-interventions and physical education classes, exercise training adaptations, health care modifications, etc.

    The goal of this Special Issue is to stimulate novel investigations and theoretical perspectives on how the COVID-19 pandemic is affecting motor behavior in children, middle-aged and older people, and people with diseases, such as diabetes, hypertension, neurological disease, etc. We intend for this article collection to be a discussion platform on how to help people cope with and adjust to critical situations. Specific aims include understanding the effects of the pandemic on motor behavior and suggesting effective strategies to manage motor behavior during the COVID-19 pandemic.

    Special Issue on Cognitive and Ecological Approaches to Sports Skills

    Description

    In everyday life as well as in sports settings, individuals coordinate their movements to achieve simple goals like walking and talking up to complex tasks such as manipulating objects in an unstable environment. This ability to coordinate actions with teammates and/or opponents is often critical to success in sports. The traditional approach to understanding the acquisition, development, and assessment of sports skills involves the idea of cognitive science, which consider that performance is predicated on the existence of a representation or schema, responsible for the organization and regulation of behaviors (i.e., the role of the brain based on information-processing theory). In the last years, the rapid development of technologies led to improvements in our knowledge of brain activity during skills acquisition, development, and assessment, such as functional magnetic resonance imaging and mobile EEG. Instead, ecological psychology theories are not too much interested in cognition and focus on the available information constraints that afford possibilities for individuals’ perception, what they learn and know, and how they decide and act. From this perspective, the emergence of coordinated behaviors in skills acquisition, development, and assessment is based on the formation of interpersonal synergies between individuals resulting from collective actions predicated on shared action possibilities (affordances). The two theories differ in their fundamental approaches, they are opposed to the actions explanations, but sometimes may be complementary to each other. On this special topical collection of the “Brazilian Journal of Motor Behavior”, we offer a space for authors to submit their recent work as original research articles, research notes, or systematic reviews addressing contributions to one or both of the two theories of motor behavior applied to individual and collective sports performance. Examples can include but are not restricted to investigations into: 1) skills acquisition, development, and assessment, 2) forms of interactions amongst teammates and/or opponent players in-game situations, and 3) methodological aspects, challenges, and solutions to the assessment of sports skills.
