Current Research in Neuroadaptive Technology provides readers with insight into the state-of-the-art field of neuroadaptive technology. The book covers the breadth and depth of current research in this field, covering a range of application domains in sufficient technical detail. The multidisciplinary character of this field means that the publication of key research is often fragmented across specialist journals. Here, the editors have consolidated current research, carefully selecting key topics that are clustered around the concept of neuroadaptive technology. In summary, the book meets the needs of readers by consolidating multidisciplinary research around a nascent technological concept. The topic of neuroadaptive technology is novel and contemporary and editors Dr. Stephen H. Fairclough and Dr. Thorsten O. Zander have captured issues related to this emerging technology at the point of inception. It is a key reference for biomedical engineers and researchers in neural engineering, biomedical engineering, computer science, and mathematics.
