Contents Foundation of Electromagnetic Theory -- All About Wave Equations -- Computational Neuroscience and Compartmental Modeling -- The Impact of Technology on Mental Health -- Sleep Promoting Improvement of Declarative Memory -- Electrical Brain Stimulation to Treat Neurological Disorders -- Brain Stimulation Therapies
Summary "The authors explain their techniques and the results of their experimental studies and assert that the application of tailored and individualized control of their approach can be combined with other therapy methods to treat neurological disorders while minimizing or even eliminating the use of pharmaceuticals. Some specific topics addressed include: The impact of electronic technology (such as smart phones) on mental health, particularly depression in young generations The beneficial influence of Slow-Wave Sleep (SWS) on declarative memory formation Electrical brain stimulation for the neurological disorders with symptoms such as chronic pain, depression, and insomnia Those in the fields of electrical engineering, and medicine as well as psychology and psychiatry will benefit from learning about this unique approach to noninvasive treatment for depression and other neurological disorders"-- Provided by publisher

Notes Bahman Zohuri, PhD, is currently at the University of New Mexico as Associate Research Professor. He is also a Consultant at Sandia National Lab as well as at Galaxy Advanced Engineering, Inc., a consulting company that he founded. He earned various patents in areas such as diffusion processes and diffusion furnace design while working as a senior process engineer at various semiconductor companies, such as Intel Corp., Varian Medical Systems, and National Semiconductor Corporation. He later joined Lockheed Martin Missile and Aerospace Corporation as Senior Chief Scientist and oversaw research and development and the study of the vulnerability, survivability, and radiation and laser hardening of different components of the Strategic Defense Initiative, known as Star Wars. Dr. Zohuri holds a PhD in Nuclear Engineering. Patrick J. McDaniel, PhD, is currently an Adjunct and Research Professor at the Department of Chemical and Nuclear Engineering, University of New Mexico. Formerly, he worked at Sandia National Laboratories in fast reactor safety, integral cross section measurements, nuclear weapons vulnerability, space nuclear power, and nuclear propulsion, and in a separate stint, on the Yucca Mountain Project and DARPA's classified UER-X program. He was also affiliated with Phillips Laboratory's (which became part of Air Force Research Laboratory) Satellite Assessment Center. He has worked on multiple classified and unclassified projects in the application of nuclear engineering to high-energy systems. Dr. McDaniel holds a PhD in Nuclear Engineering from Purdue University, Indiana
