This chapter introduces the concept of bioelectromagnetism and describes its various divisions and subdivisions. Bioelectromagnetism is a discipline that examines the electric, electromagnetic, and magnetic phenomena which arise in biological tissues. It is important to separate the concept of bioelectromagnetism from the concept of medical electronics; the former involves bioelectric, bioelectromagnetic, and biomagnetic phenomena and measurement and stimulation methodology, whereas the latter refers to the actual devices used for these purposes. This chapter also presents the detail organization of the book and brief synopsis of different parts within.

Keywords:   bioelectromagnetism, biological tissues, medical electronics, biomedical engineering, magnetization, bioelectricity
