Main description:

Completely revised and updated, "Basic Introduction to Bioelectromagnetics" facilitates the process of interdisciplinary research by introducing life scientists to the basic concepts of electromagnetic fields. This new edition outlines elements of EM that are helpful to life scientists working with physicists and electrical engineers. Each concept is presented with an associated application and discussion. Example applications include MRI, NMR, ultrasound, hyperthermia, neural stimulation, and cardiac pacing/defibrillation. With the liberal use of diagrams and graphs, this text covers the entire frequency spectrum through optical frequencies from a qualitative perspective beneficial to life scientists.
