Brainwaves: A Cultural History of Electroencephalography

In the history of brain research, the prospect of visualizing brain processes has continually awakened great expectations. In this study, Cornelius Borck focuses on a recording technique developed by the German physiologist Hans Berger to register electric brain currents; a technique that was expected to allow the brain to write ...

Practical Guide for Clinical Neurophysiologic Testing: EP, LTM, IOM, PSG, and NCS

This book provides advanced content that begins where the Practical Guide for Clinical Neurophysiologic Testing: EEG ends. This advanced guide, more geared to neurology fellows than to electroneurodiagnostic technologists, discusses evoked potentials, including visual, brainstem auditory, and somatosensory EPs. The author covers intraoperative neurophysiologic monitoring, epilepsy monitoring, long-term bedside EEG ...
