An essential guide to designing, conducting, and analyzing event-related potential (ERP) experiments, completely updated for this edition. The event-related potential (ERP) technique, in which neural responses to specific events are extracted from the EEG, provides a powerful noninvasive tool for exploring the human brain. This volume describes practical methods for ERP research along with the underlying theoretical rationale. It offers researchers and students an essential guide to designing, conducting, and analyzing ERP experiments. This second edition has been completely updated, with additional material, new chapters, and more accessible explanations. Freely available supplementary material, including several online-only chapters, offer expanded or advanced treatment of selected topics. The first half of the book presents essential background information, describing the origins of ERPs, the nature of ERP components, and the design of ERP experiments. The second half of the book offers a detailed treatment of the main steps involved in conducting ERP experiments, covering such topics as recording the EEG, filtering the EEG and ERP waveforms, and quantifying amplitudes and latencies. Throughout, the emphasis is on rigorous experimental design and relatively simple analyses. New material in the second edition includes entire chapters devoted to components, artifacts, measuring amplitudes and latencies, and statistical analysis; updated coverage of recording technologies; concrete examples of experimental design; and many more figures. Online chapters cover such topics as overlap, localization, writing and reviewing ERP papers, and setting up and running an ERP lab.

What challenges are posed by changing transnational trends, agendas and movements that affect disabled people’s lives, and what can disabled people, their representative organisations and their governments do to advance the agenda for self-determination and inclusion? This book draws together the writing of academics and activists to depict the experience and perspective of disabled people in relation to a range of contemporary social changes, with a focus firmly on ways in which disabled people and their allies can act to counter disabling policies and practices. Throughout the book there is an emphasis on disabled people’s own voices and activism as the critical driver of theoretical critique and practical change. Chapters address a wide range of cultural, institutional and personal arenas to explore and contest the boundaries that disabled people seek to move beyond, from cross-border labour movements in Korea to experience of day services in England, from continuing and long-lasting realities of wars in Lebanon, Cambodia and Somalia to the beauty of harmony in Navajo traditions for understanding disability, from collective activism to individual participation in the Olympics. This book is recommended reading for students, researchers and activists interested in Disability Studies and is directly relevant to policy makers and practitioners in a position to reshape rights, spaces and innovations in response to the priorities disabled people feel and articulate are important for their lives. It was originally published as a special issue of Disability & Society.

THE TECHNICAL ANALYSIS CLASSIC—REVISED AND UPDATED TO HELP YOU SUCCEED, EVEN DURING TIMES OF EXTREME VOLATILITY “This book contains the most advanced methodology I’ve ever seen.” —GEORGE C. LANE, from the Foreword Required reading for certification in the Chartered Market Technician (CMT) program Over a decade ago, when this groundbreaking guide was first published, the world of technical analysis had experienced vast change. Seemingly overnight, technological advances had utterly transformed the way market analysts performed their jobs. A growing army of professional technical traders, armed with global plug-and-play software, needed to improve their skills of price projection, timing, and risk management to weather the increasing market ranges and volatility. Technical Analysis for the Trading Professional helped them achieve it. The word spread that this practical guide provided radical new uses and combinations of indicators and formulas—and it became an instant classic. By comparison, today’s markets make those of 1999 look simple—so Technical Analysis for the Trading Professional has been expanded to reflect the author’s experiences over the past decade to bring you fully up to date. It provides comprehensive coverage of new techniques, as well as the timeless insight and tools that analysts will always need to maintain a competitive edge in the global financial markets, including: Explanations of why common oscillators do not travel between 0 and 100 and why signals develop in different ranges during bull versus bear market trends Expanded guidelines for the use of the Composite Index. Formulas are fully detailed for this custom oscillator that warn when the Relative Strength Index is failing to detect a trend reversal A comprehensive foundation of Gann analysis, with an explanation of how Gann Squares, the Gann Fan, and the Square of 9 are geometrically related to one another Methods for calculating Fibonacci retracements and swing projections in rapidly expanding or contracting markets A more expansive discussion of cycle analyses and their asymmetrical properties Each chapter presents the given topic as a separate building block, moving step-by-step through 150 charts that lead toward new methods of price triangulation. The result enables you to pinpoint a market objective—even in the most extreme and volatile trading environment. Use Technical Analysis for the Trading Professional to establish the trading dominance you need to excel in today’s uncertain markets.
