Note:Brain-computer interfaces (BCIs) are devices thatenable people tocommunicate via thought alone. Brain signals can be directly translated into messages or commands. Until recently, these devices were used primarily to helppeople who could not move. Ho wever, BCIs are now becoming practical tools for a wide variety of people, in many different situations. What will BCIs in the future be like? Who will use them, and why? This book, written by many of thetop BCI researchers and developers, reviews the lat est progress in the different components of BCIs. Chapters also discuss practical issues in an emerging BCI enabled community. The book is intended both for professionals and forinterested laypeople who are not experts in BCI research

Size:1 online resource
Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:Principles of Musical Acoustics focuses on the basic principles in the science and technology of music. Musical examples and specific musical instruments demonstrate the principles. The book begins with a study of vibrations andwaves, in that order. These topics constitute the basic physical properties of sound, one of two pillars supporting the science of musical acoustics. The second pillar is the human element, the physiological and psychological aspectsof acoustical science. The perceptual topics include loudness, pitch, tone color, and localization of sound. With these two pillars in place, it is possible to go in a variety of directions. The book treats in turn, the topics of roomacoustics, audio both analog and digital, broadcasting, and speec h. It ends with chapters on the traditional musical instruments, organized by family. The mathematical level of this book assumes that the reader is familiar withelementary algebra. Trigonometric functions, logarithms and powers also appear in the book, b ut computational techniques are included as these concepts are introduced, and there is further technical help in appendices

Note:The spectacular success of the scientific enterprise over the last four hundred years has led to the promise of an all encompassing vision of the natural world. In this elegant picture, everything we observe is based upon just afew fundamental proces ses and entities. The almost infinite variety and complexity of the world is thus the product of emergence. But the concept of emergence is fraught with controversy and confusion. This book ponders the question ofhow emergence should be understood within the scientific picture, and whether a complete vision of the world can be attained that includes consciousness

Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:The book offers a new approach to information theory that is more general then the classical approach by Shannon. The classical definition of information is given for an alphabet of symbols or for a set of mutually exclusivepropositions (a partition of the probability space ) with corresponding probabilities adding up to 1. The new definition is given for an arbitrary cover of , i.e. for a set of possibly overlapping propositions. The generalizedinformation concept is called novelty and it is accompa nied by two new concepts derived from it, designated as information and surprise, which describe opposite versions of novelty, information being related more to classicalinformation theory and surprise being related more to the classical concept of statis tical significance. In the discussion of these three concepts and their interrelations several properties or classes of covers are defined, which turnout to be lattices. The book also presents applications of these new concepts, mostly in statistics and i n neuroscience

Date:2012
Publisher:Berlin, Heidelberg : Springer Berlin Heidelberg
Size:1 online resource
Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:This booklet is an essay at the interface of philosophy and complexity research, trying to inspire the reader with new ideas and new conceptual developments of cellular automata. Going beyond the numerical experiments of StevenWolfram, it is argued t hat cellular automata must be considered complex dynamical systems in their own right, requiring appropriate analytical models in order to find precise answers and predictions in the universe of cellularautomata. Indeed, eventually we have to ask whether cellular automata can be considered models of the real world and, conversely, whether there are limits to our modern approach of attributing the world, and the universe for thatmatter, essentially a digital reality

Size:1 online resource
Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:This book applies methods from nonlinear dynamics to problems in neuroscience. It uses modern mathematical approaches to understand patterns of neuronal activity seen in experiments and models of neuronal behavior. The intendedaudience is researchers interested in applying mathematics to important problems in neuroscience, and neuroscientists who would like to understand how to create models, as well as the mathematical and computational methods foranalyzing them. The authors take a very broad approa ch and use many different methods to solve and understand complex models of neurons and circuits. They explain and combine numerical, analytical, dynamical systems and perturbationmethods to produce a modern approach to the types of model equations that a rise in neuroscience. There are extensive chapters on the role of noise, multiple time scales and spatial interactions in generating complex activity patternsfound in experiments. The early chapters require little more than basic calculus and some element ary differential equations and can form the core of a computational neuroscience course. Later chapters can be used as a basis for agraduate class and as a source for current research in mathematical neuroscience. The book contains a large number of illus trations, chapter summaries and hundreds of exercises which are motivated by issues that arise in biology, andinvolve both computation and analysis. Bard Ermentrout is Professor of Computational Biology and Professor of Mathematics at the University of Pi ttsburgh. David Terman is Professor of Mathematics at the Ohio State University

Title:Downward Causation and the Neurobiology of Free Will [electronic resource]

Size:1 online resource

Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:How is free will possible in the light of the physical and chemical underpinnings of brain activity and recent neurobiological experiments? How can the emergence of complexity in hierarchical systems such as the brain, based atthe lower levels in phy sical interactions, lead to something like genuine free will? The nature of our understanding of free will in the light of present-day neuroscience is becoming increasingly important because of remarkablediscoveries on the topic being made by neuroscienti sts at the present time, on the one hand, and its crucial importance for the way we view ourselves as human beings, on the other. A key tool in understanding how free will may arise inthis context is the idea of downward causation in complex systems, happ ening coterminously with bottom up causation, to form an integral whole. Top-down causation is usually neglected, and is therefore emphasized in the other part ofthe books title. The concept is explored in depth, as are the ethical and legal implications of our understanding of free will. This book arises out of a workshop held in California in April of 2007, which was chaired by Dr.Christof Koch. It was unusual in terms of the breadth of people involved: they included physicists, neuroscientists, psychia trists, philosophers, and theologians. This enabled the meeting, and hence the resulting book, to attain arather broader perspective on the issue than is often attained at academic symposia. The book includes contributions by Sarah-Jayne Blakemore, George F. R. Ellis , Christopher D. Frith, Mark Hallett, David Hodgson, Owen D. Jones,Alicia Juarrero, J. A. Scott Kelso, Christof Koch, Hans Kng, Hakwan C. Lau, Dean Mobbs, Nancey Murphy, William Newsome, Timothy OConnor, Sean A.. Spence, and Evan Thompson

Size:1 online resource
Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:This book, a classic in its field, deals with the physical systems and physiological processes that intervene in music. It analyzes what objective, physical properties of sound are associated with what subjective psychologicalsensations of music, and it describes how these sound patterns are actually generated in musical instruments, how they propagate through the environment, and how they are detected by the ear and interpreted in the brain. Using theprecise language of science, but without complica ted mathematics, the author weaves a close mesh of the physics, psychophysics and neurobiology relevant to music. A prior knowledge of physics, mathematics, neurobiology or psychology isnot required to understand most of the book it is, however, assumed t hat the reader is familiar with music - in particular, with musical notation, musical scales and intervals, and some of the basics of musical instruments. This newedition presents substantially updated coverage of psychoacoustics, including: New results from tomographic imaging of brain function that confirm some speculations in previous editions New research on consciousness andemotions The possibility of musics in extraterrestrial civilizations

Note:The dissipative soliton concept is a fundamental extension of the concept of solitons in conservative and integrable systems. It includes ideas from three major sources, namely standard soliton theory developed since the 1960s,nonlinear dynamics theo ry, and Prigogine's ideas of systems far from equilibrium. These three sources also correspond to the three component parts of this novel paradigm. This book explains the above principles in detail and gives thereader various examples from optics, biology and medicine. These include laser systems, optical transmission lines, cortical networks, models of muscle contraction, localized vegetation structures and waves in brain tissues

Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:Organic Computing is a research field emerging around the conviction that problems of organization in complex systems in computer science, telecommunications, neurobiology, molecular biology, ethology, and possibly even sociologycan be tackled scient ifically in a unified way. From the computer science point of view, the apparent ease in which living systems solve computationally difficult problems makes it inevitable to adopt strategies observed in nature forcreating information processing machinery. In this book, the major ideas behind Organic Computing are delineated, together with a sparse sample of computational projects undertaken in this new field. Biological metaphors includeevolution, neural networks, gene-regulatory networks, networks of bra in modules, hormone system, insect swarms, and ant colonies. Applications are as diverse as system design, optimization, artificial growth, task allocation,clustering, routing, face recognition, and sign language understanding

Title:Voltage-Sensitive Ion Channels [electronic resource] : Biophysics of Molecular Excitability

Date:2008
Publisher:Dordrecht : Springer Netherlands
Size:1 online resource
Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:Voltage-sensitive ion channels are macromolecules embedded in the membranes of nerve and muscle fibers of animals. Because of their physiological functions, biochemical structures and electrical switching properties, they are atan intersection of bio logy, chemistry and physics. Despite decades of intensive research under the traditional approach of gated structural pores, the relation between the structure of these molecules and their function remainsenigmatic. This book critically examines physicall y oriented approaches not covered in other ion-channel books. It looks at optical and thermal as well as electrical data, and at studies in the frequency domain as well as in the timedomain. Rather than presenting the reader with only an option of mechani stic models at an inappropriate pseudo-macroscopic scale, it emphasizes concepts established in organic chemistry and condensed state physics. The booksapproach to the understanding of these unique structures breaks with the unproven view of ion channels as structurally gated pores. Rather, it proposes gateless gating, in which the onset and cessation of avalanches of ions crossingthe membrane is explained as a cooperative phenomenon in a system poised far from equilibrium. These events, called channel op ening and closing, are initiated by an electrical depolarization, a mechanical stimulus or even a thermalfluctuation

Note:The past decade has witnessed a dramatic and widespread expansion of interest and activity in sub-Riemannian (Carnot-Caratheodory) geometry, motivated both internally by its role as a basic model in the modern theory of analysison metric spaces, and externally through the continuous development of applications (both classical and emerging) in areas such as control theory, robotic path planning, neurobiology and digital image reconstruction. The quintessentialexample of a sub Riemannian structure is t he Heisenberg group, which is a nexus for all of the aforementioned applications as well as a point of contact between CR geometry, Gromov hyperbolic geometry of complex hyperbolic space,subelliptic PDE, jet spaces, and quantum mechanics. This book provid es an introduction to the basics of sub-Riemannian differential geometry and geometric analysis in the Heisenberg group, focusing primarily on the current state ofknowledge regarding Pierre Pansu's celebrated 1982 conjecture regarding the sub-Riemannian i soperimetric profile. It presents a detailed description of Heisenberg submanifold geometry and geometric measure theory, which provides anopportunity to collect for the first time in one location the various known partial results and methods of attack on Pansu's problem. As such it serves simultaneously as an introduction to the area for graduate students and beginningresearchers, and as a research monograph focused on the isoperimetric problem suitable for experts in the area

Note:Ion channels are biological nanotubes that are formed by membrane proteins. Because ion channels regulate all electrical activities in living cells, understanding their mechanisms at a molecular level is a fundamental problem inbiology. This book dea ls with recent breakthroughs in ion-channel research that have been brought about by the combined effort of experimental biophysicists and computational physicists, who together are beginning to unravel the storyof these exquisitely designed biomolecules. With chapters by leading experts, the book is aimed at researchers in nanodevices and biosensors, as well as advanced undergraduate and graduate students in biology and the physical sciences.Key Features Presents the latest information on the molecular m echanisms of ion permeation through membrane ion channels Uses schematic diagrams to illustrate important concepts in biophysics Written by leading researchers in the areaof ion channel investigations

Title:The Emerging Physics of Consciousness [electronic resource]

Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:Consciousness remains one of the major unsolved problems in science. How do the feelings and sensations making up conscious experience arise from the concerted actions of nerve cells and their associated synaptic and molecularprocesses? Can such feel ings be explained by modern science, or is there an entirely different kind of explanation needed? And how can this seemingly intractable problem be approached experimentally? How do the operations of theconscious mind emerge out of the specific interacti ons involving billions of neurons? This book seeks answers to these questions on the underlying assumption that consciousness can be understood using the intellectual potential ofmodern physics and other sciences. There are a number of theories of conscio usness, some based on classical physics while others require the use of quantum concepts. The latter ones have drawn criticism from the parts of the scientificestablishment while simultaneously claiming that classical approaches are doomed to failure. The contributing authors present a spectrum of opinions from both sides of this on-going scientific debate, allowing readers to decide forthemselves which of the approaches are most likely to succeed

Note:The goal of this book is to disseminate information on the worldwide status and trends in biosensing R&D to government decisionmakers and the research community. The contributors critically analyze and compare biosensing researchin the United States with that being pursued in Japan, Europe and other major industrialized countries. Biosensing includes systems that incorporate a variety of means, including electrical, electronic, and photonic devices biologicalmaterials (e.g., tissue, enzymes, nucleic acids, etc.) and chemical analysis to produce detectable signals for the monitoring or identification of biological phenomena. In a broader sense, the study of biosensing includes any approachto detection of biological elements and the associated software or computer identification technologies (e.g., imaging) that identify biological characteristics. Biosensing is finding a growing number of applications in a wide varietyof areas, including biomedicine, food production and processing, and detection of ba cteria, viruses, and biological toxins for biowarfare defense. Subtopics likely to be covered in this study include the following: Nucleic acid sensorsand DNA chips and arrays, organism- and cell-based biosensors, bioelectronics and biometrics, biointerfa ces and biomaterials biocompatibility and biofouling, integrated, multi-modality sensors and sensor networks, system issues,including signal transduction, data interpretation, and validation, novel sensing algorithms, e.g., non-enzyme-based sensors for gl ucose, mechanical sensors for prosthetics, related issues in bio-MEMS and NEMS (microelectromechanicaland nanoelectromechanical systems), possibly including actuators, applications in biomedicine, the environment, food industry, security and defense. Part icular emphasis will be on technologies that may lead to portable or fieldabledevices/instruments. Important consideration will be given to an integrated approach to detection, storage, analysis, val

Note:This volume introduces some basic theories on computational neuroscience. Chapter 1 is a brief introduction to neurons, tailored to the subsequent chapters. Chapter 2 is a self-contained introduction to dynamical systems andbifurcation theory, orient ed towards neuronal dynamics. The theory is illustrated with a model of Parkinson's disease. Chapter 3 reviews the theory of coupled neural oscillators observed throughout the nervous systems at all levels itdescribes how oscillations arise, what pattern they take, and how they depend on excitory or inhibitory synaptic connections. Chapter 4 specializes to one particular neuronal system, namely, the auditory system. It includes aself-contained introduction, from the anatomy and physiology of the inner ear to the neuronal network that connects the hair cells to the cortex, and describes various models of subsystems

Size:1 online resource
Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:In recent years birdsong has developed into an extremely interesting problem for researchers in several branches of the scientific community. The reason is that of the approximately 10,000 species of birds known to exist, some4000 share with humans ( and just a few other species in the animal kingdom) a remarkable feature: their acquisition of vocalization requires a certain degree of exposure to a tutor. Between the complex neural architecture involved inthe process and the song itself, stands a deli cate apparatus that the bird must control with incredible precision. This book deals with the physical mechanisms at work in the production of birdsong, the acoustic effects that the avianvocal organ is capable of generating, and the nature of the neural instructions needed to drive it. The book provides fascinating reading for physicists, biologists and general readers alike
