about this item

Technological advances have greatly increased the potential for, and practicability of, using medical neurotechnologies to revolutionize treatment of various neurological and nervous system diseases and dysfunctions. These technologies reduce the impact of symptoms across a broad range of neurological disorders such as Parkinson's disease and depression, and help patients regain lost function caused by deafness or blindness.

Neurobionics: The Biomedical Engineering of Neural Prostheses is a concise overview of the biological underpinnings of neurotechnologies, the development process for these technologies, and the practical application of these advances in clinical settings. The text begins with the history of neurobionics, addressing the historical foundation of bionics and the development of stable long-term electrode tissue interfaces. Coverage then shifts to address the science that underpins this technology, including the electrochemical principles of safe charge injection and principles of recording and stimulating neural tissue. Chapters then address advances in the field, such as wireless neurotechnology, and preclinical testing of neural prostheses. The text covers a number of clinical applications including auditory and visual prostheses, the treatment of central nervous system disorders with neurobionics, as well as brain-computer interfaces. Concluding chapters address regulatory and commercial issues in the field, ethical considerations in the development of neuroprostheses, and companies developing and/or marketing bionic devices.

A timely work that provides readers with a useful introduction to the field, Neurobionics: The Biomedical Engineering of Neural Prostheses is an essential book for neuroscientists, neuroengineers, biomedical researchers, clinicians and industry personnel.
