B. Profiles of Neuronal Reactions When in 1970s in our laboratory we studied reactions of single and multi-neurons in the human brain using tiny electrodes implanted into different parts of the brain of neurological and psychiatric patients we were struck by similarities of neuronal reactions in certain parts of the brain16 (see Fig. 5). These similarities were expressed in so-called profiles of neuronal reactions – a grand average representation of the responses of all neurons recorded in a particular anatomical structure.

One of the intentions of the present book is to lessen these 26 The IPEG is an association of scientists involved in electrophysiological brain research in preclinical and clinical pharmacology, neurotoxicology, and related areas of interest. Goals of the IPEG are(1) t o act as a discussion platform for academic, and industrial research scientists as well as clinicians involved in pharmaco-EEG research, (2) to promote the use of electroencephalography for brain research in preclinical and clinical pharmacology and related fields, (3) to put forward guidelines on relevant aspects of pharmaco-EEG studies.

Introduction: Basic Concepts of QEEG and Neurotherapy lvii B. Brain–Computer interface The feedback of electrophysiological parameters can be used not only for self-regulation of the brain but can be applied for communication with the external world as well as for manipulation of technical devices such prostheses and microprocessors. This type of biofeedback applications is named as Brain–Computer Interface (BCI). Usually the BCI requires the learning stage during which the subject learns to control his physiological parameters (such as EEG or ERPs) of the brain.
