Abstract : The volume focuses upon the measurement and quantification of neuroelectric phenomena, neurostimulation and associated recording techniques and procedures, and the applications of biomedical engineering to the furthering of understanding of neural-behavioral processes. These research papers further explore the influence of electric currents on the neurophysiological correlates of the nervous system. The central nervous system is still the main focus of research. The use of transcranially applied electric currents in the production of electrosleep and electroanesthesia is the important practical clinical aspect of these interesting researches. But new emphasis is now placed on the effects of these applied currents to the peripheral nervous system. (Author)
