This is the new edition of the classic introductory text to electrophysiology. It covers many topics that are central to the field including the electrical properties of the cell membrane and cardiac electrophysiology. Organized as a textbook for the student needing to acquire the core competencies, this book meets the demands of advanced undergraduate or graduate coursework in biomedical engineering and biophysics. New features include extra, detailed illustrations. The book is authored by two eminent biomedical engineering professors at Duke University who discuss many topics that are central to biophysics and bioengineering and the quantitative methods employed.

MEDIA REVIEWS

Praise for Previous Editions:

"This fine text, by two well-known bioengineering professors at Duke University, is an introduction to electrophysiology aimed at engineering students. Most of its chapters cover basic topics in electrophysiology: the electrical properties of the cell membrane, action potentials, cable theory, the neuromuscular junction, extracellular fields, and cardiac electrophysiology. The authors discuss many topics that are central to biophysics and bioengineering [and] the quantitative methods [they] teach will surely be productive in the future."

IEEE Engineering in Medicine and Biology

"The authors' goal in producing this book was to provide an introductory text to electrophysiology, based on a quantitative approach. In attempting to achieve this goal, therefore, the authors have opened the book with a useful, and digestible, introduction to various aspects of the mathematics relevant to this field, including vectors, introduction to Laplace, Gauss's theorem, and Green's theorem. This book will be useful for students in medical physics and biomedical engineering wishing to enter the field of electrophysiological investigation. It will also be helpful for biologists and physiologists who wish to understand the mathematical treatment of the processes and signals at the center of the interesting interdisciplinary field."
