About this book

The study and modulation of cortical connections is a rapidly growing area in neuroscience.  This unique book by prominent researchers in the field covers recent advances in this area.  The first section of the book describes studies of cortical connections, modulation of cortical connectivity and changes in cortical connections with activities such as motor learning and grasping in primates.   The second section covers the use of non-invasive brain stimulation to study and modulate cortical connectivity in humans.  The last section describes changes in brain connectivity in neurological and psychiatric diseases, and potential new treatments that manipulate brain connectivity.  This book provides an up-to-date view of the study of cortical connectivity, and covers its role in both fundamental neuroscience and potential clinical applications.

Reviews

From the reviews:

“This is a brilliant text on transcranial EEG, fMRI, and NMS of sensorimotor neurophysiology. … I highly recommend this book to all audiences in Neuroscience and Neurophysiology. It will appeal to graduate students, postdocs, medical students, and seasoned researchers in university settings. … A great book for all students.” (Joseph J. Grenier, Amazon.com, June, 2014)

“This fascinating book provides an important perspective on brain function and is a welcome addition to the neuroscientific literature. … the book would appeal to research neuroscientists and graduate students in the neurosciences. … This is a captivating book on brain connectivity written for research neuroscientists. Anyone who wants to keep abreast of this emerging field must read this book. I highly recommend it!” (Michael Joel Schrift, Doody's Book Reviews, April, 2013)
