An important new work establishing a foundation for future developments in neural engineering

The Handbook of Neural Engineering provides theoretical foundations in computational neural science and engineering and current applications in wearable and implantable neural sensors/probes. Inside, leading experts from diverse disciplinary groups representing academia, industry, and private and government organizations present peer-reviewed contributions on the brain-computer interface, nano-neural engineering, neural prostheses, imaging the brain, neural signal processing, the brain, and neurons.

The Handbook of Neural Engineering covers:

  • Neural signal and image processing—the analysis and modeling of neural activity and EEG-related activities using the nonlinear and nonstationary analysis methods, including the chaos, fractal, and time-frequency and time-scale analysis methods—and how to measure functional, physiological, and metabolic activities in the human brain using current and emerging medical imaging technologies
  • Neuro-nanotechnology, artificial implants, and neural prosthesis—the design of multi-electrode arrays to study how the neurons of human and animals encode stimuli, the evaluation of functional changes in neural networks after stroke and spinal cord injuries, and improvements in therapeutic applications using neural prostheses
  • Neurorobotics and neural rehabilitation engineering—the recent developments in the areas of biorobotic system, biosonar head, limb kinematics, and robot-assisted activity to improve the treatment of elderly subjects at the hospital and home, as well as the interactions of the neuron chip, neural information processing, perception and neural dynamics, learning memory and behavior, biological neural networks, and neural control

About the Editor

Metin Akay is a professor of bioengineering and interim department chairman of the Harrington Department of Bioengineering at the Fulton School of Engineering, Arizona State University at Tempe. He received his Bachelor of Science and Master of Science in Electrical Engineering from the Bogazici University, Istanbul, Turkey in 1981 and 1984, respectively, and a Ph.D. from Rutgers University in 1990.

He is the author/coauthor/editor of 14 books and has given more than 50 keynote, plenary, and invited talks at international meetings including the first, second and third Latin American Conference on Biomedical Engineering in 1998, 2001, and 2004.

Dr. Akay is the founding chair of the Annual International Summer School on Biocomplexity from System, to Gene sponsored by the NSF and Dartmouth College and technically cosponsored by the IEEE EMBS, of the Satellite Conference on Emerging Technologies in Biomedical Engineering. In 2003, he was also the founding chair of the International IEEE Conference on Neural Engineering and the first chair of the steering committee of the IEEE Transaction on Computational Biology and Bioinformatics sponsored by the IEEE (CS, EMBS, NN, etc.) and non-IEEE societies. He was the invited guest editor for the special issues of Bioinformatics: Proteomics and Genomics Engineering of the Proceedings of IEEE, the most highly cited IEEE journal.

Prof. Akay is a recipient of the IEEE EMBS Service Award, an IEEE Third Millennium Medal, and the IEEE Engineering in Medicine and Biology Society Early Career Achievement Award 1997. He also received the Young Investigator Award of the Sigma Xi Society, Northeast Region in 1998 and 2000.

Dr. Akay is a fellow of Institute of Physics, senior member of the IEEE, a member of BMES, Eta Kappa, Sigma Xi, Tau Beta Pi. He also serves on the editorial or advisory board of several international journals including the IEEE T-BME, IEEE T-NSRE, IEEE T-ITIB, Proceedings of IEEE, Journal of Neural Engineering, NIH Neural Engineering and Bioengineering partnership study sections and several NSF review panels.
