About the book

Brain-Computer Interfacing (BCI) is a rapidly growing field of bioengineering that allows the human brain to directly control the computer system and order commands. The aerospace systems, automotive industry, medical and healthcare system, security, lie detection, alertness monitoring, telepresence, gaming, education, art and other fields and industries are potential beneficiaries of the research in this field.

This book will cover recent progress in the field of BCI and the challenges for extraction of the human decisions out of brain signals. The presented topics will include neuroscience, recording BCI Signals, signal processing, artifact reduction, machine learning, invasive and noninvasive methods and applications of BCI and ethics.

The book will be designed as a reference for senior undergraduate and graduate students in neural engineering or brain-computer interfacing from a wide range of disciplines. It will also be useful for self-study and as a reference for neuroscientists, computer scientists, bioengineers, and medical practitioners.

About the editor

Vahid Asadpour

University of California Los Angeles

Vahid Asadpour is currently with Photonic Laboratory of University of California Los Angeles (UCLA). He graduated from Polytechnic University of Tehran achieving M.S. and PH.D. degree in biomedical engineering. He was a visiting professor and researcher at University of North Dakota (UND). He is working in the field of artificial intelligence and machine learning and their applications in digital signal processing. In addition, he is using digital signal processing in medical imaging and speech processing. He developed brain computer interfacing algorithms and published one book chapter and several journal and conference papers in this field and other areas of intelligent signal processing. Adding to his professional experimental skills, he also designed medical devices including a laser Doppler monitoring system and therapeutic drug estimation algorithm. He is also affiliated with Polytechnic University of Sadjad.

Introducing your Author Service Manager

Ms. Marijana Francetic

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.
