Abstract

The human brain, heart, and muscles emit electromagnetic signals which can be measured non-invasively. By assessing specific patterns and features of these signals, one can gain insight into many aspects on human brain function and disease. This thesis summarizes the meaning and validity of electromagnetic markers allowing the investigation of autonomous nervous system activity, vigilance, neural processing during cognitive tasks, and network communication. Furthermore, it provides examples for applications in clinical and cognitive research.
