JNPT Special Issue on Interactions of Cognition with Movement and Rehabilitation

by Amanda Kayser | Oct 08, 2020

Global cognition, as well as specific domains such as attention, memory and executive function, have been largely ignored within cohort studies and clinical trials of motor control and rehabilitation. While motor studies often use cognitive screening tools, (e.g. MoCA, MMSE), a deeper dive into specific cognitive domains is rare, despite many neurologic diagnoses having both cognitive and motor symptoms. This special issue will feature recent advances in cognitive assessment, cognitive impairments, and cognitive therapies, and how they may interact with or give insights into motor rehabilitation.

Potential topics include, but are not limited to:

  • Motor rehabilitation across the cognitive spectrum (i.e. inclusion of more cognitively-impaired participants), and/or evaluation of how cognitive deficits affect motor outcomes
  • Reciprocal/combined effects of cognitive and motor therapies

Basic knowledge and clinical manifestations of motor deficits in cognitive disorders and neurorehabilitation (e.g. Alzheimer's disease, multiple sclerosis, Parkinson disease with dementia).

  • Incorporation of cognitive assessment into motor rehabilitation (e.g. dual- or multi-tasking).

First drafts will be due on April 1, 2021, with a target JNPT publication date of January 2022. Accepted manuscripts will be published ahead of the print version on the journal website as they become available. Please note that this is a competitive call for papers. JNPT receives more submissions than can be published and it therefore will likely not be possible to publish all manuscripts submitted in response to this call.

Prospective authors are encouraged to contact the Special Issue Editors regarding their submission:
