About the book

With the development of non-invasive brain function measurement such as electroencephalography (EEG), magnetoencephalography (MEG), functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI), magnetic resonance spectroscopy (MRS), positron emission tomography (PET), near-infrared spectroscopy (NIRS), transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS), we have become able to know the brain activity that is the basis of human behavior and mental activity. Above all, EEG is a method that measures the electrical nerve activity (primary signal) in the brain and has the oldest history of non-invasive brain function measurement. EEG characteristics include high time resolution and low spatial resolution, but recently it has become possible to estimate the source of EEG signals due to advances in analysis and measurement techniques. Moreover, in the medical field, EEG is usually used as examination equipment, but it has been used as a rehabilitation tool to control human behavior and mental activity in recent years. This book will outline the clinical application of EEG and its analysis technology.

Introducing your Author Service Manager

Ms. Sara Debeuc

As an Author Service Manager my responsibilities include monitoring and facilitating all publishing activities for authors and editors. From chapter submission and review, to approval and revision, copyediting and design, until final publication, I work closely with authors and editors to ensure a simple and easy publishing process. I maintain constant and effective communication with authors, editors and reviewers, which allows for a level of personal support that enables contributors to fully commit and concentrate on the chapters they are writing, editing, or reviewing. I assist authors in the preparation of their full chapter submissions and track important deadlines and ensure they are met. I help to coordinate internal processes such as linguistic review, and monitor the technical aspects of the process. As an ASM I am also involved in the acquisition of editors. Whether that be identifying an exceptional author and proposing an editorship collaboration, or contacting researchers who would like the opportunity to work with IntechOpen, I establish and help manage author and editor acquisition and contact.
