MEG EEG Primer, 2nd Edition (Original PDF from Publisher)

1.1.Description

 

The second edition of “MEG EEG Primer (Original PDF from Publisher)” offers a comprehensive overview of two significant non-invasive human electrophysiological methods: magnetoencephalography (MEG) and electroencephalography (EEG). These pivotal methods are instrumental in probing the dynamics of the human brain, enabling the tracking of its responses to sensory, cognitive, and social stimuli.

This unique volume remains unrivaled, juxtaposing MEG and EEG side-by-side, fostering an integrated comprehension of brain function. Spanning 22 chapters and enriched with nearly two hundred color figures, the book delves into the fundamental physical and physiological underpinnings of these techniques, tracing their historical evolution, instrumentation, recording methods, data analysis, and interpretation.

This updated edition significantly expands on MEG and EEG sensor types, amplifiers, and new analysis tools, and addresses emerging concerns such as infection control in MEG/EEG laboratories amid the COVID-19 pandemic. It also introduces the burgeoning field of interoception and explores future technological advancements, envisioning novel applications for MEG and EEG, ultimately contextualizing their pivotal role in advancing neuroscience research and our comprehension of human brain dynamics.
