Bioelectromagnetism: Principles and Applications of Bioelectric and Biomagnetic Fields

Jaakko Malmivuo and Robert Plonsey


This book looks at the application of engineering science and technology to biological cells and tissues that are electrically conducting and excitable. It describes the theory and a wide range of applications in both electric and magnetic fields. The similarities and differences between bioelectricity and biomagnetism are described in detail from the viewpoint of lead field theory. This book aims to help with the understanding of the properties of existing bioelectric and biomagnetic measurements and stimulation methods, and to aid with the designing of new systems.

Keywords: engineering science, biological cells, tissues, electric fields, magnetic fields, bioelectricity, biomagnetism, lead field theory
