This book provides complete, systematic coverage of the methods of electrical stimulation of the brain, a technique used by many psychologists and physiologists to study the neural organization of behavior-producing systems. It includes discussion of the fundamental principles and gives readers an in-depth treatment of current issues and brain stimulation tactics. Useful to physiological psychologists, neurophysiologists, and graduate students, Principles of Brain Stimulation contains full coverage of refractory periods, spatial effects, and two-electrode stimulation, as well as unique appendix materials on paired-pulse stimulation of axon bundles along with practical notes. This is an especially valuable guide for use in the laboratory or in laboratory courses.
"The book has interesting practical advice especially in relation to stimulating selected axon bundles in the whole in situ brain." --General Pharmacology "Lucid, well written, and readable. . . .thoroughly and helpfully illustrated. . . .An elegant explanation of what may well be the most useful paradigm of electrical brain stimulation in present-day neuroscience. It is well-worth reading." --Journal of Psychiatry and Neuroscience
