This is a special clearance item due to damage sustained in shipping to our warehouse. The front cover was apparently struck with a sharp object, which resulted in a puncture/tear on the front cover that continued for about the first 40 pages. This is cosmetic damage only and does not affect readability. Otherwise, the book is in new condition and never used. This book is non-returnable.

Low Resolution Brain Electromagnetic Tomography (LORETA) is a cutting edge, freely available brain imaging software that provides 3-dimensional brain images based on EEG recordings. Dr. Cannon, a highly regarded LORETA specialist and researcher, provides EEG practitioners with this essential and much needed “missing manual” for LORETA. The book starts with an excellent introduction to LORETA and then guides readers through the basic operations of the LORETA and sLORETA software interface and analysis functions. The following chapters then explore clinical applications of LORETA for specific disorders, such as depression and ADHD, LORETA neurofeedback, Brodmann areas, ethical considerations, and more. Presented in a beautiful color, large format, this is the first known published book for the increasingly popular LORETA software and will no doubt become the essential LORETA reference text.
