Biosensors for medical applications

Book Section

Human beings, along with other mammals, consciously interact with the surrounding world by means of seven sensing mechanisms. In addition to the five senses, the abilities to detect temperature and variations in elevation are almost as important. One cannot help but be awed by the evolutionary process that brought about the development of such senses and by their integration into a brain capable of information processing and storage.
