- Describes the complex signal processing topics related to EEG/ERP denoising and analysis in language non-engineers can understand
- Details the physiological foundations of EEG signals so that engineers can properly design their instrumentations.
- Discusses emerging applications due to the significant increase in number of electrodes in the new EEG equipment, in terms of the high resolution topographic map.
Changes in the neurological functions of the human brain are often a precursor to numerous degenerative diseases. Advanced EEG systems and other monitoring systems used in preventive diagnostic procedures incorporate innovative features for brain monitoring functions such as real-time automated signal processing techniques and sophisticated amplifiers. Highlighting the US, Europe, Australia, New Zealand, Japan, Korea, China, and many other areas, EEG/ERP Analysis: Methods and Applications examines how researchers from various disciplines have started to work in the field of brain science, and explains the different techniques used for processing EEG/ERP data. Engineers can learn more about the clinical applications, while clinicians and biomedical scientists can familiarize themselves with the technical aspects and theoretical approaches.
This book explores the recent advances involved in EEG/ERP analysis for brain monitoring, details successful EEG and ERP applications, and presents the neurological aspects in a simplified way so that those with an engineering background can better design clinical instruments. It consists of 13 chapters and includes the advanced techniques used for signal enhancement, source localization, data fusion, classification, and quantitative EEG. In addition, some of the chapters are contributed by neurologists and neurosurgeons providing the clinical aspects of EEG/ERP analysis.
- Covers a wide range of EEG/ERP applications with state-of-the-art techniques for denoising, analysis, and classification
- Examines new applications related to 3D display devices
- Includes MATLAB® codes
EEG/ERP Analysis: Methods and Applications is a resource for biomedical and neuroscience scientists who are working on neural signal processing and interpretation, and biomedical engineers who are working on EEG/ERP signal analysis methods and developing clinical instrumentation. It can also assist neurosurgeons, psychiatrists, and postgraduate students doing research in neural engineering, as well as electronic engineers in neural signal processing and instrumentation.
"... good coverage of topics from some basic ideas such as the genesis of EEG/ ERP to advanced applications including computer-brain interface, neuro rehabilitation, and neuro feedback. I am delighted to note that applied signal processing concepts have been explained so nicely in an easy-to-understand way that is certainly a great treat for nonmathematically oriented researchers such as neuro scientists, cognitive scientists, psychologists, and psychiatrists."

"ERP/EEG Analysis: Methods and Applications is a brilliant book. It is a compendium of the latest brain mapping methods, techniques, and concepts presented in a self-explanatory and easy-to-understand format. In a clear exposition of difficult areas, this inspirational book demonstrates how advanced methods and techniques employed in the processing of measurements of brain activities can be employed for monitoring process of brain disorders and dysfunctions.
This comprehensive volume adequately covers brain mapping technologies, describing uses for the biomedical engineer and neuroscientist. Clinical applications of EEG/ERP in neurological disorders, psychophysiological disorders, and severe brain injuries are conspicuously presented, which makes this book essential reading for those with great interest in mapping of brain activity in health and disease.
In addition, the book’s repertoire contains specialist areas pertaining to integrative modalities, neurofeedback, quantitative EEG, and the brain-computer interface. Written by world renowned experts, this book is an essential reference piece for all scientists and medical engineers interested in deciphering the neural code through neural signaling, undoubtedly to benefit a more comprehensive understanding of the brain."
