Topographic Mapping of Brain Electrical Activity presents the state of topographic mapping. It discusses its contributions to brain research. It addresses its research and clinical applications. It also explains completely the brain electrical activity mapping as a tool used in the diagnosis and treatment of neurological dysfunction Some of the topics covered in the book are the color imaging of scalp somatosensory evoked potential fields; visual evoked potential topography; spatial analysis of EEG and evoked potential data; intra-individual changes in EEG during mental performance; and changes in transversal coherence. The event-related desynchronization mapping of visualization of cortical activation patterns is fully covered. The spatiotemporal mapping display is discussed in detail. The text describes in depth the physical aspects of EEG data as a basis for topographic mapping. The human scalp field injection experiments are presented completely. A chapter is devoted to the classification strategies for topographic mapping data. Another section focuses on the topological factors. The book can provide useful information to radiologists, neurologists, students, and researchers.
