Evoked Potentials and Electrical Stimulation: Clinical Roles, Challenges and Emerging Research


Timothy Eisenhower (Editor)

Series: Neuroscience Research Progress
BISAC: MED057000

This new book discusses advances in research on evoked potentials and electrical stimulation. Chapters One describes the neurophysiological immediate and short-term changes that occur in the nervous system structures of patients assessed in three different contexts of work: Intraoperative Neurophysiologic Monitoring (IONM), ICU, and in the Clinical Neurophysiological Laboratory. Chapter Two focuses on the importance of cortical evoked potentials to analyze the neurophysiological correlates of migraines, strokes and related psychiatric complications, paying particular attention to the possible implications in terms of clinical applications and future research. Chapter Three analyzes electric stimulation in stroke patients. Chapter Four explores the effects of oxidative stress on brain electrical activity and its repercussions on sensory organization in geriatric rhesus monkeys in captivity. The final chapter provides a short communication on visually evoked potentials in rhesus monkeys. (Imprint: Nova Biomedical)
