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.
