Product Description

Brain stimulation technologies are both tools to probe brain function and to provide therapeutic options for patients with neuropsychiatric disease where pharmacological options are not viable. Although the field has been in existence for over seventy years, research interest in brain stimulation has been on the rise particularly in the last two decades.

Brain Stimulation: Methodologies and Interventions is an introduction to the field of brain stimulation technology and its applications. The book explores how brainstimulating technologies work in the context of brain pathways that mediate normal and abnormal brain function. Chapters cover neuroanatomy and activity dependent changes in neuronal function triggered by brain stimulation, as well as applications of brain stimulation technologies themselves, including noninvasive procedures that rely on convulsive or seizure therapeutics, and non-convulsive therapies such as magnetic and electrical brain stimulation.

Authored by an international group of leaders in the field, Brain Stimulation is a valuable resource for both neuroscience researchers and clinicians.

5Highly recommended!
By PV
There is a dearth of such books that so-well encapsulates the rapidly-growing and exciting field of brain stimulation. Irving Reti’s textbook is a good introduction to the field for any psychiatrist or neurologist, but also serves as an up-to-date and in-depth reference for the specialist. The chapters are written by experts in their respective fields. The gamut of brain stimulation modalities and techniques are explored in detail in this book, supported by relevant reviews of the existing literature. The basic science of each methodology is very well-described and excellently-illustrated. It is an outstanding textbook—I highly recommend it!

5An outstanding book
By Milena Hruby Smith
This is an outstanding book. Clearly and engagingly written, with a comprehensive coverage of a fascinating and vital field. Essential reading for psychiatrists, highly recommended for other physicians, therapists and anyone seeking a comprehensive and thoughtful guide to the practice and science of methods of brain stimulation.
