Functional Neuroscience: Evoked Potentials and Related Techniques book cover

Functional Neuroscience: Evoked Potentials and Related Techniques

Presentations from the 8th International Evoked Potentials Symposium (Fukuoka, Japan), Volume 59

This volume comprises invited presentations from the 8th International Evoked Potentials Symposium. It is no longer possible to categorise chapters by modality, so the Editors have grouped them under broader headings reflecting the use of Evoked Potentials (EPs) in the search for sources and origins of phenomena; the insights they offer into cognitive processing; and their role in clinical advances.

Clinical neurophysiologists, neurologists, neuroscientists, pain specialists, neuro-opthalmologists, cognitive neuroscientists, developmental neuroscientists, neuropharmacologists, and bioengineers in medicine
