New Book for AT Professionals interested in BCI-"Brain-Computer Interfaces: Principles and Practice" Wolpaw & Wolpaw

Dear Colleagues,

I'm pleased to announce the publication of a comprehensive peer-reviewed BCI textbook, "Brain-Computer Interfaces: Principles and Practice," published by Oxford University Press.

The brochure below describes the book.
It is now available from Oxford at an introductory price of US$99.
(Amazon price is US$128.99.  List price is US$135.)
The book's ISBN# is 978-0-19-538885-5.

Here are the details in brief:

* comprehensive and authoritative treatment of the field

* 25 peer-reviewed chapters covering all aspects of BCI research and development, including: basic biological and physical principles underlying BCI technology;  BCI signal processing; BCI hardware and software; current BCI methods and applications; clinical, therapeutic, and commercialization approaches and issues; ethical considerations; key issues for the future.

* chapters written by many of the luminaries in the field

* written for easy accessibility for anyone with basic undergraduate science background

* can serve as text for a BCI course or reference for a BCI researcher.

“[This] is a remarkably well edited and organized book prepared by Jonathan and Elizabeth
Wolpaw. It is not simply a patchwork of 25 chapters…[but] rather, each chapter provides
an overview of its main topic, adds its message to the key issues discussed by others,
poses questions that still need to be addressed, and looks to the near future. The Wolpaws
establish the foundational issues in an introductory chapter and nicely finish with a summary
of those issues, as well as a sober examination of the future of BCI science and applications….
Brain-Computer Interfaces
is a very fine and readable resource to catch up on the
accomplishments, needs, and promise of this technology.”
--Bruce H. Dobkin, MD, Professor of Neurology, Director, Neurologic Rehabilitation and Research
Program, University of California Los Angeles, Geffen/UCLA School of Medicine, Los Angeles, CA

“[The Editors] are in a unique position to oversee the authoritative and complete coverage of
the field, a journey they take us through with the collaboration of other experts. Indeed, this
is the first book, not only to present a unified perspective of the entire spectrum of topics
in brain-computer interfaces, but also to redefine the field. Moreover, this is a much-needed
textbook that I was waiting for. No doubt, it will become an indispensable source for every
practitioner --newcomers, students and researchers alike.”

--Dr. José del R. Millán, Defitech Professor, Defitech Chair in Non-Invasive Brain-Machine
Interface, Center for Neuroprosthetics, Ecole Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne (EPFL),

Brain-Computer Interfaces: Principles and Practice
coverage provides an introduction to and summary of all aspects of BCI research and development: from brain anatomy to electrode technologies; from signal processing to clinical applications; from business dissemination models to ethical issues. The chapters are written by recognized experts in each of the fields relevant to BCI technology and they are coordinated into a logical whole with a didactic format and style accessible to all
is a comprehensive and authoritative presentation of the current state of brain-computer interface (BCI) research and development. This book is accessible to readers with basic undergraduate-level background in biology, physics, and mathematics, and is aimed at scientists, engineers, and clinicians at all levels from advanced undergraduates upward. Its uniquely comprehensive and balanced

The book can serve as the basis for graduate-level courses in BCI research and development, and as a resource for experienced BCI researchers or others interested in BCI research and its applications. The book’s goal is to provide a diverse range of readers with the broad knowledge needed to interact productively with others from the many disciplines involved in BCI research and development. By enabling people from many different disciplines to work together effectively, this book makes a unique and important contribution to a burgeoning new research field.
