The idea of interfacing minds with machines has long captured the human imagination. Recent advances in neuroscience and engineering are making this a reality, opening the door to restoration and augmentation of human physical and mental capabilities. Medical applications such as cochlear implants for the deaf and neurally controlled prosthetic limbs for the paralyzed are becoming almost commonplace. Brain-computer interfaces (BCIs) are also increasingly being used in security, lie detection, alertness monitoring, telepresence, gaming, education, art, and human augmentation. This introduction to the field is designed as a textbook for upper-level undergraduate and first-year graduate courses in neural engineering or brain-computer interfacing for students from a wide range of disciplines. It can also be used for self-study and as a reference by neuroscientists, computer scientists, engineers, and medical practitioners. Key features include questions and exercises in each chapter and a supporting website.

Neuromechanics of Human Movement-5th Edition

Neuromechanics of Human Movement, Fifth Edition, draws on the disciplines of neurophysiology and physics to explore how the nervous system controls the actions of muscles to produce human motion. This contemporary approach is much different from the traditional approach, which focuses solely on mechanics and does not consider the role of the sensorimotor system in the control of human movement. Authored by Roger Enoka, a widely recognized and esteemed scholar in neuromechanics, this influential text is an essential resource in biomechanics, motor learning, and applied physiology, making complex information accessible to students.

In this book the author and his coworkers try to show how fruitful is to deal with current scientific matters for philosophy and theology. The book will give some insights and open new paths of reflection rather than giving a systematic or accomplished summary. In particular, the author and his coworkers deal with these problems by dialoguing with three classical authors, each coming from one of the fields involved: Albert Einstein for science, Aristotle for philosophy and St Thomas Aquinas for theology. In this way, we shall discover that many of the problems raised in the current research can find a new light when examined through the eyes of these classical examinations.The Introduction, which tries to sketch the historical and contemporary background of the book, is followed by five other chapters. Chapter 2 develops some epistemological reflections on the sciences, philosophy of nature and theology of nature. Chapter 3 journeys among several scientific disciplines and branches with the aim of grasping the main fundamental lessons that the scientific research may offer to philosophy and theology. Such a journey brings to three heuristic philosophical principles in view of a renewed philosophy of nature. The following chapter (Chapter 4) opens to a further dimension, the theological one, trying to envisage some theological hints that can derive when the previous analysis is confronted with St Thomas' thought and approach. The fifth chapter addresses anthropological matters in the light of the epistemological, philosophical and theological enquires conducted in the previous chapters. A conclusive chapter that summarizes all the main results follows.

Critical care clinicians must be knowledgeable about the anatomic, physiologic, and biochemical processes that are critical to the restoration of a functioning microvascular affecting organ perfusion. These basic physiologic processes critical to tissue perfusion and cellular oxygenation are presented in this issue on Monitoring Tissue Perfusion and Oxygenation. A working knowledge of oxygen delivery and oxygen consumption at the microvascular level will provide critical information needed for clinicians to continuously question the adequacy of tissue perfusion given our current lack of microvascular bedside monitoring.
