Space is an a-priori aspect of our experience that is critically important for our interaction with the environment. How the brain constructs spatial representations is a key topic in cognitive neuroscience and it is one of the fields where Neuropsychologia has made key contributions: from the original description of hemispatial neglect, to the link to sensory-motor fronto-parietal networks first described in the monkey brain and later explored in human neuroimaging studies, to most recently, discoveries regarding how spatial processing interacts with other brain functions such as emotions, memory and language.
This special issue will present a perspective on the neural mechanisms underlying spatial representations for action, perception, emotion and cognition, and will address the related domains of multisensory processing, body representation, and motor control. This special issue originated from an international scientific symposium organized at the University of Bologna to celebrate the contribution to the field by Elisabetta Làdavas at the time of her retirement.
