Introduction to Bioelectrodes by Clifford Ferris

By Clifford Ferris

This e-book is the outgrowth of a number of classes that the writer has taught over the last decade at 3 universities. such a lot lately, it has served because the significant textual content for a direction provided within the Bioengineering Graduate application on the collage of Wyoming. The publication is designed to fill wishes. For the informal reader who simply desires to be aware of whatever approximately electrodes, it presents a common review of the categories of electrodes to be had for various makes use of. For the scholar, clinician, and researcher, theories are mentioned and functional equipment are defined. either fabrication equipment and strategies to be used are offered for various electrodes, in addition to electrode platforms and configurations. The dialogue applies to electrodes in either the stimulating and recording modes. as well as fabrication and use ideas, there's large dis­ cussion of assorted difficulties linked to electrodes. consciousness is directed to electrode polarization (both alternating-and direct-current phenomena), electric noise, and requisites for backup instrumentation resembling digital amplifiers. a quick therapy of sign research and filtering tech­ niques is incorporated to counterpoint the bankruptcy facing amplifiers and the discussions of noise.
