Brain-Computer Interfaces: Revolutionizing Human-Computer by Bernhard Graimann, Brendan Z. Allison, Gert Pfurtscheller

By Bernhard Graimann, Brendan Z. Allison, Gert Pfurtscheller

A brain-computer interface (BCI) establishes an immediate output channel among the human mind and exterior units. BCIs infer consumer rationale through direct measures of mind task and hence permit conversation and regulate with out stream. This e-book, authored through specialists within the box, offers an available creation to the neurophysiological and signal-processing history required for BCI, offers cutting-edge non-invasive and invasive techniques, provides an outline of present and software program recommendations, and studies the main fascinating in addition to new, rising BCI purposes. The publication is meant not just for college students and younger researchers, but additionally for beginners and different readers from varied backgrounds prepared to profit approximately this important clinical endeavour.

Brain Tumors in Adults, An Issue of Neurologic Clinics

In 2007, among forty. 000 and 50,000 humans within the usa can be clinically determined with fundamental mind tumors, nearly all of whom might be adults. thrice this quantity will advance metastatic mind tumors from melanoma originating in other places within the physique. This factor of Neurologic Clinics comprises the subsequent articles: Epidemiology of mind Tumors (Wrensch, Claus); Molecular Pathogenesis of mind Tumors and the function of Stem Cells (Ligon, Kesari); Advances in Neuroimaging of mind Tumors (Henson); clinical administration of mind Tumor sufferers (Schiff, Wen); Advances in Neurosurgery for mind Tumors (Shaffrey); Advances in Radiation treatment for mind Tumors (Mehta); Novel treatments for mind Tumors (Wen, Schiff); Anaplastic Astrocytomas and Glioblastomas (Reardon); Anaplastic Oligodendrogliomas and Anaplastic Oligoastrocytomas (Van Den Bent); Low-Grade Gliomas (Lang, Gilbert); mind Metastases (Deangelis); Benign mind Tumors (Link); fundamental CNS Lymphoma (Abrey); and Genetic explanations of mind Tumors (Plotkin).

Transendoscopic Ultrasound for Neurosurgery

Endoscopic neurosurgery has now not but reached the protection and applicability of microsurgery. Endo-neuro-sonography is a brand new strategy aimed toward making endoscopy more secure via real-time imaging and navigation potential (brain-radar). The endo-neurosonographic photograph is a sonographic test on the tip of the endoscope (mini-CT) providing more information to the endoscopic view.

The objective is to provide these users with basic assistive devices. Although the bandwidth of presentdays BCIs is very limited, BCIs are of utmost importance for people suffering from complete locked-in syndrome, because BCIs are their only effective means of communication and control. Advances in BCI technology will make BCIs more appealing to new user groups. BCI systems may provide communication and control to users with less severe disabilities, and even healthy users in some situations. BCIs may also provide new means of treating stroke, autism, and other disorders.
