Bioelectrical Signal Processing
in Cardiac and Neurological Applications

Course description


The analysis of bioelectrical signals continues to receive wide attention in research as well as commercially because novel signal processing techniques have helped to uncover valuable information for improved diagnosis and therapy. This book takes a unique problem-driven approach to biomedical signal processing by considering a wide range of problems in cardiac and neurological applications?the two "heavyweight" areas of biomedical signal processing. The interdisciplinary nature of the topic is reflected in how the text interweaves physiological issues with related methodological considerations. Bioelectrical Signal Processing is suitable for a final year undergraduate or graduate course as well as for use as an authoritative reference for practicing engineers, physicians, and researchers. Solutions Manual available online at


Biomedical Engineers, Electrical Engineers, Signal Processing Engineers, Electrocardiologists and other medical professionals involved in biomedical engineering research and biomedical instrument/device development.


Participation to the lectures and Problem solving sessions.
"Problem solving" is synonymous to solving a number of problems listed at the end of the book chapters. Doing this would be to illustrate some of the methods and to deal with practical issues in the method's application. The sessions do not require anything but pen and paper.
