New book on neuromuscular fundamentals by MSFEA professor

​​​Congratulations to MSFEA's Professor Nassir Sabah​ on publishing his new book on Neuromuscular Fundamentals: How Our Musculature is Controlled, by CRC Press. 

The book is intended for undergraduate or graduate students in the natural sciences, mathematics, or engineering who seek a deeper understanding of the fundamentals of neuroscience and the somatomotor system. The coverage progresses from the subcellular, starting with the electrophysiology of the cell membrane, then proceeding to synapses, neurons, and muscle, before considering neuronal motor ensembles and the neuromuscular system as a whole. Simple, clear, and comprehensive explanations are given throughout.

This is Dr. Sabah's fourth book after publishing the following books on electric and electronic circuits:




Nassir Sabah is professor of biomedical engineering in the electrical and computer engineering department at the American University of Beirut. He received his BSc (Hons. Class I) and his MSc in electrical engineering from the University of Birmingham, UK, and his PhD in biophysical sciences from the State University of New York (SUNY/Buffalo). He has served as Chairman of the Electrical Engineering Department, Director of the Institute of Computer Studies, and Dean of the Faculty of Engineering and Architecture at the American University of Beirut. In these capacities, he was responsible for the development of programs, curricula, and courses in electrical, biomedical, communications, and computer engineering.


Professor Sabah has extensive professional experience in the fields of electrical engineering, electronics, and computer systems, with more than 35 years' teaching experience in neuroengineering, biomedical engineering, electronics, and electric circuits. He has over 100 technical publications, mainly in neurophysiology, biophysics, and biomedical instrumentation.

He has served on numerous committees and panels in Lebanon and the region. He is a Fellow of the Institution of Engineering and Technology (IET, UK), a member of the American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS), and a member of the American Society for Engineering Education (ASEE).
