Topographic Mapping of Brain Electrical Activity presents the state of topographic mapping. It discusses its contributions to brain research. It addresses its research and clinical applications. It also explains completely the brain electrical activity mapping as a tool used in the diagnosis and treatment of neurological dysfunction Some of the topics covered in the book are the color imaging of scalp somatosensory evoked potential fields; visual evoked potential topography; spatial analysis of EEG and evoked potential data; intra-individual changes in EEG during mental performance; and changes in transversal coherence. The event-related desynchronization mapping of visualization of cortical activation patterns is fully covered. The spatiotemporal mapping display is discussed in detail. The text describes in depth the physical aspects of EEG data as a basis for topographic mapping. The human scalp field injection experiments are presented completely. A chapter is devoted to the classification strategies for topographic mapping data. Another section focuses on the topological factors. The book can provide useful information to radiologists, neurologists, students, and researchers.

Death, Decomposition, and Detector Dogs: From Science to Scene is designed to help police investigators and Human Remains Detection K9 handlers understand the basics of forensic taphonomy (decomposition) and how to most effectively use a human remains detection (HRD) K9 as a locating tool. The book covers basic anatomy and the physiology of canine olfaction along with some of the unique characteristics that allow a dog to work. Using concise and understandable explanations along with numerous photographs, the book covers the stages of decomposition and how they are affected by the environment; what is currently understood about the chemical profile of odor from human remains; how weather, topography, ground cover and terrain can affect odor dispersion; and different types of mapping and weather data that can be used before and during deployment of the HRD K9. The final chapter ties it all together by providing case reports about decedents who have been found in different locations in a variety of environmental conditions. By learning how these variables can affect how and what is found, handlers and investigators will be better prepared to meet the challenges of their jobs.
