This conference brought together scientists from diverse disciplines such as biomedical and electrical engineering, mathematics, physics, neurology, neuroscience, psychophysiology and psychology to discuss the application of nonlinear dynamics in the study of brain function. This is a relatively new field which involves measuring the properties of chaotic strange attractors in the human EEG. Probably the earliest and still most exciting result in the field is that 'the more chaos the better' is the rule in many physiological areas. We have only the most speculative ideas about why the brain might be chaotic and what the implications are if it really is. The potential is unimaginably large. This volume will serve to inspire others to pursue research in this field and point the way in some promising directions.
