The first volume is devoted to the interface between physiologic mechanisms and arising biosignals, whereas the second volumeis focussed on the interface between biosignals and biomedical sensors. The physiologic mechanisms behind the biosignals are described from the basic cellular level up to their advanced mutual coordination level during sleep. The arising biosignals are discussed within the scope of vital physiologic phenomena to foster their understanding and comprehensive analysis.

What People are Saying About This
"I appreciate the composition of this book. The running text offers quite simple readability, supported by numerous figures with consistent indication of location and type of applied sensors. On the other hand, experts in biomedical engineering will welcome the high amount of comprehensive footnotes." (Univ.Prof.Helmut Pfützner, Vice-president of TU BioMed, Vienna University of Technology May 2015)
