Description of Transcranial Magnetic and Electrical Brain Stimulation for Neurological Disorders
Transcranial Magnetic and Electrical Brain Stimulation for Neurological Disorders examines the non-invasive application of electrical stimulation of the brain to treat neurological disorders, and to enhance individual/group performance. This volume discusses emerging electro-technologies such as transcranial direct current/alternating current electric fields and pulsed magnetic fields to treat many of these common medical problems. Chapters begin by examining foundations of electromagnetic theory and wave equations that underly these technologies before discussing methods to treat disorders, the impact of technology and mental health and artificial intelligence.
Discussing over 40 neurological diseases, this book presents coverage of techniques to treat stroke, epilepsy, Alzheimer’s Disease, Parkinson’s Disease, Huntington’s Disease, depression, schizophrenia, and many other diseases of the nervous system.
