Paul L. Nunez, Ramesh Srinivasan, "Electric Fields of the Brain: The Neurophysics of EEG"
Electroencephalography (EEG) is practiced by neurologists, cognitive neuroscientists, and others interested in functional brain imaging. Whether for clinical or experimental purposes, all studies share a common purpose-to relate scalp potentials to the underlying neurophysiology. Electrical potentials on the scalp exhibit spatial and temporal patterns that depend on the nature and location of the sources and the way that currents and fields spread through tissue. Because these dynamic patterns are correlated with behavior and cognition, EEG provides a "window on the mind," correlating physiology and psychology. This classic and widely acclaimed text, originally published in 1981, filled the large gap between EEG and the physical sciences. It has now been brought completely up to date and will again serve as an invaluable resource for understanding the principles of electric fields in living tissue and for using hard science to study human consciousness and cognition. No comparable volume exists for it is no easy task to explain the problems of EEG in clear language, with mathematics presented mainly in appendices. Among the many topics covered by the Second Edition are micro and meso (intermediate scale) synaptic sources, electrode placement, choice of reference, volume conduction, power and coherence measures, projection of scalp potentials to dura surface, dynamic signatures of conscious experience, neural networks immersed in global fields of synaptic action, and physiological bases for brain source dynamics. The Second Edition is an invaluable resource for neurologists, neuroscientists (especially cognitive neuroscientists), biomedical engineers, and their students and trainees. It will also appeal to physicists, mathematicians, computer scientists, psychiatrists, and industrial engineers interested in EEG.
William O. Tatum, "Handbook of EEG Interpretation"
EEG interpretation is a critical skill for most practicing neurologists, as well as for an increasing number of specialists in other practice settings. Handbook of EEG Interpretation, the first illustrated, portable handbook to discuss all aspects of clinical neurophysiology, is an essential means of quick reference for anyone involved in EEG interpretation. Handbook of EEG Interpretation provides practical information on reading EEGs by juxtaposing actual EEGs with bullet points of critical information, making it an essential neurophysiology reference for use during bedside, OR, ER, and ICU EEG interpretation. At once more concise, illustrative, and portable than other texts on EEG, Handbook of EEG Interpretation fits in a labcoat pocket, providing immediate information for anyone involved in EEG interpretation. It is a useful tool for all residents, fellows, and clinicians in neurology as well as many internists, psychiatrists, neurosurgeons, anesthesiologists, ICU staff, ER staff, EEG technologists, and nurses. The book's seven main sections cover normal, abnormal, and epileptiform EEG patterns, as well as seizures, patterns of special significance (e.g., stupor and coma), polysomnography, and neurophysiologic intraoperative monitoring.
EEG - fMRI: Physiological Basis, Technique, and Applications
Functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) and Electronecephalography (EEG) are very important and complementary modalities since fMRI offers high spatial resolution and EEG is a direct measurement of neuronal activity with high temporal resolution. Interest in the integration of both types of data is growing rapidly as it promises to provide important new insights into human brain activity as it has already done so in the field of epilepsy. The availability of good quality instrumentation capable of providing interference-free data in both modalities means that electrophysiological and haemodynamic characteristics of individual brain events can be captured for the first time. Consequently, it seems certain that the integration of fMRI and EEG will play an increasing role in neuroscience and of the clinical study of brain disorders such as epilepsy.

Time and the Brain (Conceptual Advances in Brain Research) by Robert Miller
Since the days of Galileo, time has been a fundamental variable in scientific attempts to understand the natural world. Once the first recordings of electrical activity in the brain had been made, it became clear that electrical signals from the brain consist of very complex temporal patterns. This can now be demonstrated by recordings at the single unit level and by electroencephalography (EEG). Time and the Brain explores modern approaches to these temporal aspects of electrical brain activity. The temporal structure as revealed from trains of impulses from single nerve cells and from EEG recordings are discussed in depth together with an exploration of correlations with behaviour and psychology. The single cell and EEG approaches often tend to be segregated as the research occurs in laboratories in different parts of the world. By bringing together modern information acquired using both methods it is hoped that they can become better integrated as complimentary windows on the information processing achieved by the brain.
Markus Ullsperger, Stefan Debener, "Simultaneous EEG and fMRI: Recording, Analysis, and Application"
One of the major challenges in science is to study and understand the human
brain. Numerous methods examining different aspects of brain functions have been
developed and employed. To study systemic interactions brain networks in vivo,
non-invasive methods such as electroencephalography (EEG) and functional
magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) have been used with great success. However,
each of these methods can map only certain, quite selective aspects of brain
function while missing others; and the inferences on neuronal processes and
information flow are often rather indirect. To overcome these shortcomings of
single methods, researchers have attempted to combine methods in order to make
optimal use of their advantages while compensating their disadvantages. Hence,
it is not surprising that soon after the introduction of fMRI as a neuroimaging
method the possibilities of combinations with EEG have been explored.
This book is intended to aid researchers who plan to set up a simultaneous EEG-fMRI laboratory and those who are interested in integrating electrophysiological and hemodynamic data. As will be obvious from the different chapters, this is a dynamically developing field in which several approaches are being tested, validated and compared. Currently, there is no one best solution for all problems available, but many promising techniques are emerging. This book shall give a comprehensive overview of these techniques. In addition, it points to open questions and directions for future research.
Neural activity in the human brain generates coherent synaptic and intracellular currents in cortical columns that create electromagnetic signals which can be measured outside the head using magnetoencephalography (MEG) and electroencephalography (EEG). Electromagnetic brain imaging refers to techniques that reconstruct neural activity from MEG and EEG signals. Electromagnetic brain imaging is unique among functional imaging techniques for its ability to provide spatio-temporal brain activation profiles that reflect not only where the activity occurs in the brain but also when this activity occurs in relation to external and internal cognitive events, as well as to activity in other brain regions. Adaptive spatial filters are powerful algorithms for electromagnetic brain imaging that enable high-fidelity reconstruction of neuronal activity. This book describes the technical advances of adaptive spatial filters for electromagnetic brain imaging by integrating and synthesizing available information and describes various factors that affect its performance. The intended audience include graduate students and researchers interested in the methodological aspects of electromagnetic brain imaging.
Rosalind Cartwright - The Twenty-four Hour Mind: The Role of Sleep and Dreaming in Our Emotional Lives
In The Twenty-four Hour Mind, sleep scientist Rosalind Cartwright brings
together decades of research into the bizarre sleep disorders known as
parasomnias to propose a new theory of how the human mind works consistently
throughout waking and sleeping hours. Thanks to increasingly sophisticated EEG
and brain imaging technologies, we now know that our minds do not simply "turn
off" during sleep. Rather, they continue to be active, and research has
indicated that one of the primary purposes of sleep is to aid in regulating
emotions and processing experiences that occur during preceding waking hours. As
such, when sleep is neurologically or genetically impaired or just too short,
the processes that good sleep facilitates--those that usually have a positive
effect on our mood and performance--can short circuit, with negative results
that occasionally reach tragic proportions. Examining the interactions between
conscious and unconscious forms of thinking as they proceed throughout the
cycles of sleeping, dreaming, and waking, Cartwright demystifies the inner
workings of the human mind that trigger sleep problems, how researchers are
working to control them, and how they can apply what they learn to further our
understanding of the brain. Along the way, she provides a lively account of the
history of sleep research and the birth of sleep medicine that will initiate
readers into this fascinating field of inquiry and the far-reaching implications
it will have on the future of neuroscience. The Twenty-four Hour Mind offers a
unique look at a relatively new area of study that will be of interest to those
with and without sleep problems, as well as anyone captivated by the mysteries
of the brain--and what sleep continues to teach us about the waking mind.

Modeling Phase Transitions in the Brain (Springer Series in Computational Neuroscience)
The induction of unconsciousness using anesthetic agents demonstrates that the cerebral cortex can operate in two very different behavioral modes: alert and responsive vs. unaware and quiescent. But the states of wakefulness and sleep are not single-neuron properties---they emerge as bulk properties of cooperating populations of neurons, with the switchover between states being similar to the physical change of phase observed when water freezes or ice melts. Some brain-state transitions, such as sleep cycling, anesthetic induction, epileptic seizure, are obvious and detected readily with a few EEG electrodes; others, such as the emergence of gamma rhythms during cognition, or the ultra-slow BOLD rhythms of relaxed free-association, are much more subtle. The unifying theme of this book is the notion that all of these bulk changes in brain behavior can be treated as phase transitions between distinct brain states.
Bruce J. Fisch, MD Epilepsy and Intensive Care Monitoring: Principles and Practice
Unlike many other diagnostic procedures, EEG, now over 80 years old, and
epilepsy monitoring, now over 40 years old, have demonstrated their usefulness
and stood the test of time. Although the benefits of these diagnostic procedures
are clear, monitoring is currently not available to the majority of patients in
need. One of the factors limiting broader implementation is the lack of
practitioners with special expertise.
Epilepsy and Intensive Care Monitoring was developed to address this concern. This practical volume contains detailed chapters covering all areas of clinical epilepsy monitoring. Featuring expert authors from major epilepsy centers, this seminal work reviews all current procedures and applications for monitoring adults and children with epilepsy in the Epilepsy Monitoring Unit and the ICU

Christoph M. Michel,Thomas Koenig, Daniel Brandeis,Lorena R. R. Gianotti,Jirí Wackermann," Electrical Neuroimaging"
Electrical neuroimaging is based on the analysis of brain electrical activity recorded from the human scalp with multichannel EEG. It offers enormous potential for the dynamic mapping of brain functions, and for the non-invasive diagnosis of neurological and psychiatric conditions.
Todd C. Handy, "Brain Signal Analysis: Advances in Neuroelectric and Neuromagnetic Methods"
Cognitive electrophysiology concerns the study of the brain's electrical and
magnetic responses to both external and internal events. These can be measured
using electroencephalograms (EEGs) or magnetoencephalograms (MEGs). With the
advent of functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI), another method of
tracking brain signals, the tools and techniques of ERP, EEG and MEG data
acquisition and analysis have been developing at a similarly rapid pace, and
this book offers an overview of key recent advances in cognitive
The chapters highlight the increasing overlap in EEG and MEG analytic techniques, describing several methods applicable to both; they discuss recent developments, including reverse correlation methods in visual-evoked potentials and a new approach to topographic mapping in high-density electrode montage; and they relate the latest thinking on design aspects of EEG/MEG studies, discussing how to optimize the signal-to-noise ratio as well as statistical developments for maximizing power and accuracy in data analysis using repeated-measure ANOVAS.

concept of dynamic memory, leading to dynamic-APLR alliance and all brain
functions. The latest volume in the Conceptual Advances in Brain Research
series, Memory and Brain Dynamics is an invaluable reference for all
postgraduate students, researchers and professionals in the field of
Carl Senior, Tamara Russell , Michael S. Gazzaniga, "Methods in Mind (Cognitive Neuroscience)"
The evolution of cognitive neuroscience has been spurred by the development of
increasingly sophisticated investigative techniques to study human cognition. In
Methods in Mind, experts examine the wide variety of tools available to
cognitive neuroscientists, paying particular attention to the ways in which
different methods can be integrated to strengthen empirical findings and how
innovative uses for established techniques can be developed. The book will be a
uniquely valuable resource for the researcher seeking to expand his or her
repertoire of investigative techniques.
Each chapter explores a different approach. These include transcranial magnetic stimulation, cognitive neuropsychiatry, lesion studies in nonhuman primates, computational modeling, psychophysiology, single neurons and primate behavior, grid computing, eye movements, fMRI, electroencephalography, imaging genetics, magnetoencephalography, neuropharmacology, and neuroendocrinology. As mandated, authors focus on convergence and innovation in their fields; chapters highlight such cross-method innovations as the use of the fMRI signal to constrain magnetoencephalography, the use of electroencephalography (EEG) to guide rapid transcranial magnetic stimulation at a specific frequency, and the successful integration of neuroimaging and genetic analysis. Computational approaches depend on increased computing power, and one chapter describes the use of distributed or grid computing to analyze massive datasets in cyberspace. Each chapter author is a leading authority in the technique discussed.

Amine Nait-Ali, "Advanced Biosignal Processing
Through 17 chapters, this book presents the principle of many advanced biosignal
processing techniques. After an important chapter introducing the main biosignal
properties as well as the most recent acquisition techniques, it highlights five
specific parts which build the body of this book. Each part concerns one of the
most intensively used biosignals in the clinical routine, namely the
Electrocardiogram (ECG), the Elektroenzephalogram (EEG), the Electromyogram (EMG)
and the Evoked Potential (EP). In addition, each part gathers a certain number
of chapters related to analysis, detection, classification, source separation
and feature extraction. These aspects are explored by means of various advanced
signal processing approaches, namely wavelets, Empirical Modal Decomposition,
Neural networks, Markov models, Metaheuristics as well as hybrid approaches
including wavelet networks, and neuro-fuzzy networks.
The last part, concerns the Multimodal Biosignal processing, in which we present two different chapters related to the biomedical compression and the data fusion.
Instead organising the chapters by approaches, the present book has been voluntarily structured according to signal categories (ECG, EEG, EMG, EP). This helps the reader, interested in a specific field, to assimilate easily the techniques dedicated to a given class of biosignals. Furthermore, most of signals used for illustration purpose in this book can be downloaded from the Medical Database for the Evaluation of Image and Signal Processing Algorithm. These materials assist considerably the user in evaluating the performances of their developed algorithms.
This book is suited for final year graduate students, engineers and researchers in biomedical engineering and practicing engineers in biomedical science and medical physics.
Zhong-Lin Lu, Lloyd Kaufman - Magnetic Source Imaging of the Human Brain
This book is designed to acquaint serious students, scientists, and clinicians
with magnetic source imaging (MSI)--a brain imaging technique of proven
importance that promises even more important advances. The technique permits
spatial resolution of neural events on a scale measured in millimeters and
temporal resolution measured in milliseconds. Although widely mentioned in
literature dealing with cognitive neuroscience and functional brain imaging,
there is no single book describing both the foundations and actual methods of
magnetoencephalopgraphy and its underlying science, neuromagnetism. This volume
fills a long-standing need, as it is accessible to scientists and students
having no special background in the field, and makes it possible for them to
understand this literature and undertake their own research.
A self-contained unit, this book covers MSI from beginning to end, including its relationship to allied technologies, such as electroencephalography and modern functional imaging modalities.
In addition, the book:
*introduces the field to the non-specialist, providing a framework for the rest of the book;
*provides a thorough review of the physiological basis of MSI;
*describes the mathematical bases of MSI--the forward and inverse problems;
*outlines new signal processing methods that extract information from single-trial MEG;
*depicts the early, as well as the most recent versions of MSI technology;
*compares MSI with other imaging methodologies;
*describes new paradigms and analysis techniques in applying MSI to study human perception and cognition, which are also applicable to EEG; and
*reviews some of the most important results in MSI from the most prominent researchers and laboratories around the world.

Kenneth Revett, "Behavioral Biometrics: A Remote Access Approach"
With the advent of the internet as a medium for performing business
transactions, the need for a secure communication channel has never been more
paramount. The study of behavioral biometrics - the verification and/or
identification of individuals based on the way they provide information to an
authentication system - originated from the need for a small footprint,
versatile alternative to expensive hardware-based, or physiological, biometrics.
As an emerging alternative to these traditional and more well-known
physiological biometrics such as fingerprinting or iris scans, behavorial
biometrics can offer state-of-the-art solutions to identity management
requirements as either a stand-alone system or part of a multi-biometric
Whilst there are many existing texts that focus on physiological biometrics or algorithmic approaches deployed in biometrics, Behavioral Biometrics addresses a gap in the existing literature for a text that is solely dedicated to the topic of behavioral biometrics. The author

Metin Akay “Handbook of Neural Engineering"
An important new work establishing a foundation for future developments in
The Handbook of Neural Engineering provides theoretical foundations in
computational neural science and engineering and current applications in
wearable and implantable neural sensors/probes. Inside, leading experts from
diverse disciplinary groups representing academia, industry, and private and
government organizations present peer-reviewed contributions on the
brain-computer interface, nano-neural engineering, neural prostheses, imaging
the brain, neural signal processing, the brain, and neurons.
The Handbook of Neural Engineering covers:
Neural signal and image processing--the analysis and modeling of neural activity and EEG-related activities using the nonlinear and nonstationary analysis methods, including the chaos, fractal, and time-frequency and time-scale analysis methods--and how to measure functional, physiological, and metabolic activities in the human brain using current and emerging medical imaging technologies.
Neuro-nanotechnology, artificial implants, and neural prosthesis--the design of multi-electrode arrays to study how the neurons of human and animals encode stimuli, the evaluation of functional changes in neural networks after stroke and spinal cord injuries, and improvements in therapeutic applications using neural prostheses.
Neurorobotics and neural rehabilitation engineering--the recent developments in the areas of biorobotic system, biosonar head, limb kinematics, and robot-assisted activity to improve the treatment of elderly subjects at the hospital and home, as well as the interactions of the neuron chip, neural information processing, perception and neural dynamics, learning memory and behavior, biological neural networks, and neural control
This landmark reference work brings together for the first time in one volume the most recent research from different areas of the emerging field of multisensory integration. After many years of using a modality-specific "sense by sense" approach, researchers across different disciplines in neuroscience and psychology now recognize that perception is fundamentally a multisensory experience. To understand how the brain synthesizes information from the different senses, we must study not only how information from each sensory modality is decoded but also how this information interacts with the sensory processing taking place within other sensory channels. The findings cited in The Handbook of Multisensory Processes suggest that there are broad underlying principles that govern this interaction, regardless of the specific senses involved.
The book is organized thematically into eight sections; each of the 55 chapters presents a state-of-the-art review of its topic by leading researchers in the field. The key themes addressed include multisensory contributions to perception in humans; whether the sensory integration involved in speech perception is fundamentally different from other kinds of multisensory integration; multisensory processing in the midbrain and cortex in model species, including rat, cat, and monkey; behavioral consequences of multisensory integration; modern neuroimaging techniques, including EEG, PET, and fMRI, now being used to reveal the many sites of multisensory processing in the brain; multisensory processes that require postnatal sensory experience to emerge, with examples from multiple species; brain specialization and possible equivalence of brain regions; and clinical studies of such breakdowns of normal sensory integration as brain damage and synesthesia.
Toshifumi Kumai, "Another View of the Brain System"
Our intelligent life deeply depends on the highly evolved nervous system of the brain, and the brain is one of most exciting themes in science. The authors have studied the control mechanism of the central nervous system in masticatory movements using electromyograms (EMG), electroencephalograms (EEG), and magnetoencephalograms (MEG). Much of the volume of this book is made up of descriptions of common established knowledge in neurophysiology, whereas short columns, entitled "A Different Angle", are interspersed here and there in each chapter. "A Different Angle" columns were based on students' questions. Many readers of this book may have had questions like those described in "A Different Angle" at an early stage of their study of neuroscience, but which may have been forgotten. Everybody, including specialists in neuroscience, will be able to read and use this book to gain a better understanding of the field.
The thoroughly updated Fifth Edition of this popular book provides a practical introduction to contemporary neurology for nonspecialists. It offers straightforward guidance on diagnosis and management of all disorders affecting the central and peripheral nervous systems. Each chapter includes case studies with multiple-choice questions, plus a bulleted list indicating when to consult a neurologist. This edition features increased emphasis on treatment, including drugs, devices, and rehabilitation. The authors provide complete information on all new neurologic drugs–including dosage and interactions–and discuss herbal and alternative medicines where appropriate. This edition also includes more tables and illustrations to speed clinicians’ access to information.
