Overview

An important new work establishing a foundation for future developments in neural engineering

The Handbook of Neural Engineering provides theoretical foundations in computational neural science and engineering and current applications in wearable and implantable neural sensors/probes. Inside, leading experts from diverse disciplinary groups representing academia, industry, and private and government organizations present peer-reviewed contributions on the brain-computer interface, nano-neural engineering, neural prostheses, imaging the brain, neural signal processing, the brain, and neurons.

The Handbook of Neural Engineering covers:

  • Neural signal and image processing—the analysis and modeling of neural activity and EEG-related activities using the nonlinear and nonstationary analysis methods, including the chaos, fractal, and time-frequency and time-scale analysis methods—and how to measure functional, physiological, and metabolic activities in the human brain using current and emerging medical imaging technologies
  • Neuro-nanotechnology, artificial implants, and neural prosthesis—the design of multi-electrode arrays to study how the neurons of human and animals encode stimuli, the evaluation of functional changes in neural networks after stroke and spinal cord injuries, and improvements in therapeutic applications using neural prostheses
  • Neurorobotics and neural rehabilitation engineering—the recent developments in the areas of biorobotic system, biosonar head, limb kinematics, and robot-assisted activity to improve the treatment of elderly subjects at the hospital and home, as well as the interactions of the neuron chip, neural information processing, perception and neural dynamics, learning memory and behavior, biological neural networks, and neural control

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"This handbook is an excellent and informative technical reference for researchers and undergraduate students with a basic background in electrical or biomedical engineering." (IEEE Engineering in Medicine and Biology Magazine, January/February 2009)

"…a comprehensive summary of the latest trends and is an essential resource for researchers in this field." (Journal of the American Medical Association, August 22/29, 2007)

"…very useful…for those already working in the discipline. It fills a void in the pertinent literature; there are few works that compare." (Doody's Book Reviews)

"This is a good quality book…useful as a current survey and resource for ideas, and the state of the art." (Doody's Book Reviews)

"...useful as a current survey and resource for ideas, and the state of the art." (Doody's Health Services)

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: George Rudolph, PhD (The Citadel)
Description: This book on the emerging interdisciplinary science of neuroengineering is a compendium of current research, covering models, processes, hardware, and software, with an emphasis on the man-machine interface for rehabilitative devices.
Purpose: The author's purposes for the book are to highlight recent advances in wearable and implantable technology and related computational and neural science; serve as a primer, educational material, technical reference, and R&D resource; and become the unique neural engineering resource that contributes to the organization of the neural engineering knowledge domain and facilitates growth in the field. These are worthy objectives, but I don't believe it will become a unique resource — in fact, nanotechnology and embedded systems are changing so rapidly that it is difficult to predict what capabilities will be like in five years. It does, however, meet the other objectives.
Audience: According to the author, this book is written as a primer for students, for practitioners, and for researchers in the field of neuroengineering. This book may be a primer on neuroengineering, but a reader has to have a significant background in one of the contributing fields to make use of it. It is for graduate students, practitioners, and researchers.
Features: The book is a survey of current research in neuroengineering from the point of view of an emerging, integrated discipline. It highlights recent advances and innovations in medicine, software, hardware, and systems and their applications to neural rehabilitation. The book adequately covers information in the field, and the chapters are interesting. Readers with different backgrounds will find something to interest them, and the editor did not try to make every chapter interesting to everyone (which is good). There isn't anything particularly innovative about the presentation of the material, but serious readers won't necessarily expect that. What they do want is clear presentation of information, and the book delivers that. The book could use a set of questions at the end of each chapter, which could be a mixture of review and research-oriented questions that highlight the issues and investigations that the authors want to pursue. Although comprehensive in its approach, there is almost too much information in this book, with 40 chapters in 3 parts.
Assessment: This is a good quality book, in terms of content, and it compares favorably with other books on this subject. It is useful as a current survey and resource for ideas, and the state of the art. Like much of the biomedical field, neuroengineering is rapidly evolving, and many details will be out of date before the book is widely read. However, it is useful for researchers to find information like this in one place, rather than to have to search through all the different journals and conferences where this material might otherwise be published.
