Single Neuron Studies of the Human Brain

Significant advances in our characterization of neurons and neuronal circuits came about with the advent of techniques to record individual spikes. The possibility of perform such recordings in awake behaving humans has opened up numerous new opportunities to investigate human cognition. This chapter summarizes the contributions we anticipate human single units to make to the areas of Learning and Memory, Emotions, Language, Free Will, Consciousness, Sleep, Epilepsy, Deep Brain Stimulation, Motor Prostheses, and Neurotechnology.

Keywords:   Future topics, human single unit
