Recent advances in amplifier technology allow recordings of brain activity
in freely moving participants. Using mobile electroencephalography (EEG)
and Mobile Brain/Body Imaging (MoBI), the neural dynamics accompanying
cognition can be recorded in ecologically valid protocols. While mobile EEG
often uses minimally intrusive low-density montages to investigate
sensor-based parameters in the time and frequency domains, MoBI
synchronizes recordings of human brain activity, eye and body tracking as
well as autonomic markers, while participants act and interact in a
three-dimensional environment. While still in an early stage, mobile EEG
and MoBI has clearly captured the imagination of the larger neuroscience
community by facilitating the study of action and cognition in healthy,
aged and neurological populations. Beyond that, mobile EEG designs are
aimed at the fields of sports science and art, and elusive human drives
such as innovation and creativity.

This special issue seeks to present a series of experimental papers,
targeted reviews and opinion articles that will lay out the latest findings
in these areas. The call for a special issue recognizes the beginning of a
new frontier in our understanding of natural cognition in action and the
important translational and clinical implications that come with it. We
encourage you to submit your work and to be part of the EJN special issue
entitled ‘Time to move: brain dynamics underlying natural action and

When submitting for a special issue, use the “Submit an Article” portal on
the EJN Wiley page, and then select “Special Issue Article” from the
drop-down list of article types. This will trigger the “what is the name of
the Special Issue you’re submitting to” question.
