Introducing the students to the digital signal processing of bio-medical signals, with particular emphasis on electrocardiographic (ECG) and electroencephalographic (EEG) signal processing.

Programme to be followed The course will include a mixture of theoretical (around 40 %) and practical sessions (around 60 %). After an overview of the different types of biomedical signals, the course will focus on ECG and EEG signal processing. All the theoretical concepts will be reinforced through practical sessions in the simulation laboratory using Matlab. The students will work with real-world signals, both downloaded from the PhysioNet database and captured at the simulation laboratory.
Prerequisites An introductory course to Probability and Statistics, a one semester course on Signals and Systems and a one semester course on Digital Signal Processing.
Course exam The evaluation of the course will be performed through a test at the end of the theoretical sessions plus an evaluation of the practical sessions based on the code and results attained in the laboratory.
