About the book
Brain science is a broad research field covering many dynamic and challenging topics. Using PET imaging techniques, one of the research mainstreams is brain-related scientific simulation or computer-modeled brain network development and the other one is the study of mind theory as well as improvement of mind communication and brain neuroplasticity enhancement using various scientific methods including neuroimaging and neurocomputation. This book will review the recent developments of brain science related neuroimaging including neural networks, brain-computer interface and computational neuroscience based on well-developed neuroscience principles and models; and also include well-studied pharmacological researches regarding the theory of mind, metacognition and mindreading, together with neuroplasticity enhancement using advanced neuroimaging and brain mapping techniques.
Thorough review and detailed illustrations of the current brain science-related technique including neural network algorithms and applications, brain computer interface device and disease treatment, computational neuroscience simulation and realization will be the main focus of this book. This new book would hopefully capture the interests of colleagues interested in brain science principles and neuroimaging applications, as well as disease diagnosis and treatment, and could help convey the methodological and developmental perspectives of PET brain science in engineering, neuroscience and medical application field.
