Adaptive Spatial Filters for
Electromagnetic Brain Imaging
Kensuke Sekihara, Srikantan S. Nagarajan, eds.
Springer 2008; $159.00 (hardcover).
Functional brain imaging allows us to look inside the human brain and to study the neural mechanisms
that underlie human behavior. In recent years, adaptive spatial-filter brain imaging is increasingly used
both for basic human neuroscience studies and for clinical pre-operative functional brain imaging. This
book describes the technical advances of adaptive spatial filters in the context of electromagnetic brain
imaging. It also integrates and synthesizes available information on adaptive spatial filters for electromagnetic brain imaging and describes causes of performance degradation such as lead-field errors,
brain background interference and source correlations.
The book is well organized into 13 chapters, including an appendix. The mathematical arguments
and algorithms are described in detail. The text provides very helpful instruction for graduate students
studying electromagnetic brain imaging and researchers interested in the methodological aspects of
electromagnetic brain imaging.
The most comprehensive and up-to-date optics resource available
Handbook of Optics, Third Edition
(Five Volume Set)
Prepared under the auspices of the Optical Society of America, the five carefully architected and
cross-referenced volumes of the Handbook of Optics, Third Edition, contain everything a student,
scientist, or engineer requires to actively work in the field. From the design of complex optical
systems to world-class research and development methods, this definitive publication provides
unparalleled access to the fundamentals of the discipline and its greatest minds.
Individual chapters are written by the world’s most renowned experts who explain, illustrate, and
solve the entire field of optics. Each volume contains a complete chapter listing for the entire
Handbook, extensive chapter glossaries, and a wealth of references. This pioneering work offers
unprecedented coverage of optics data, techniques, and applications.
