Sensorimotor processing and goal-directed movement

Abstract

To summarize, traditional disciplinary boundaries have led to an artificial division between the sensory and motor components of everyday activity. Motor control researchers are trained largely in the structure and function of the motor system, while vision researchers are trained in the structure and function of the visual system. The two communities of researcher publish in different specialized journals and present their work at special purpose disciplinary conferences. The current special issue represents an attempt to bring together in one place work in the two fields and in the interface between them that we hope will ultimately lead increased communication between the two disciplines in support of a newer and deeper understanding of sensorimotor integration.
