Sanja Josef Golubic

Department of Physics, Faculty of Science, University of Zagreb

Dr. Josef Golubic's latest highlight contribution to the field includes resolving 30-years long enigma of neural network underlying auditory sensory gating; disclosing a new, fast cortical pathway which links prefrontal cortex to primary sensory areas within first 100 milliseconds after stimulation, and finally revealing a discrete individual biomarker of Alzheimer’s disease with the potential to detect the disease in its preclinical stage.

About the book

Sensory processing plays an integral role in the interaction and adaptation by which an individual navigates through a stimulus-loaded environment. Although intensive research of sensory processing has accumulated a large body of knowledge over the years, the key issues such as where, when and how the human neural system processes, integrates and influences environmental information to produce personal experiences and images of reality, are still open. As neurocognitive theories of sensory processing rapidly change and develop with novel research findings, there is a great potential to consider the current extent to which these findings can help in understanding the complex interfering of surround stimuli with an individual’s processing of elicited cognitive responses.

The book Integration and Representation of Sensory Processes aims to disseminate the latest research breakthroughs in the field of basic and clinical neurophysiology of sensory processing and multisensory integration. The book intends to introduce novel models of sensory processing and explore functional and effective connectivity between brain areas underlying sensory responses and the multimodal integration with possible clinical implications of these findings in the diagnosis and treatment of neurological and psychiatric disorders. The methods presented to assess human neural systems involved in sensory processing and the generations of perception cover a range of functional neuroimaging approaches including electroencephalography (EEG), magnetoencephalography (MEG), positron emission tomography (PET) and functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI). These techniques have created the opportunity to explore the relationship between stimulus properties, stimulus representation in the brain, and their connection with perceptual attributes more directly. Finally, applications of neurophysiological sensory processing results will be discussed, including the state-of-the-art development of brain-machine interfaces.

Expected publication date: February 8th 2021

All chapters are copy-checked and typesetted before being published. IntechOpen regularly submits its books to major databases for evaluation and coverage, including the Clarivate Analytics Book Citation Index in the Web of ScienceTM Core Collection. Other discipline-specific databases are also targeted, such as Web of Science's BIOSIS Previews.

About the editor

Sanja Josef Golubic

Department of Physics, Faculty of Science, University of Zagreb

Sanja Josef Golubic is a senior research and teaching assistant (postdoctoral fellow) at the Department of Physics, Faculty of Science, University of Zagreb. Her academic qualifications include a Ph.D. in cognitive neurodynamics and M.Sc. in theoretical physics. Despite a short scientific career, she has made outstanding achievements in the field of neuroscience. Her first scientific publication was nominated for the Nightingale Prize for best Medical and Biological Engineering and Computing paper in 2011. The latest highlight contributions to the field include resolving 30-years long enigma of neural network underlying auditory sensory gating; disclosing a new, fast cortical pathway which links prefrontal cortex to primary sensory areas within first 100 milliseconds after stimulation, and finally revealing a discrete individual biomarker of Alzheimer’s disease with the potential to detect the disease in its preclinical stage.

Introducing your Author Service Manager

Ms. Jasna Bozic

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.
