The idea that emotions and physical actions are strongly intertwined has been widely accepted for quite some time. Yet surprisingly, in both the affective neuroscience and movement neuroscience literature, relatively little empirical attention has been paid to the (psycho)neurophysiological processes underpinning emotion-motor interactions. This body of work provides new insights into emotion-motor interactions by furthering our understanding of the temporal relationship between emotion and motor preparation and motor output during different stages of brain maturation as well as the neurobiological correlates of abnormal motor output in the form of non-epileptic seizures.
