Objectives 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
downloaded from the PhysioNet database and provided by the
professors of the course.
Prerequisites An introductory course to Probability and Statistics, a one
semester course on Signals and Systems, a one semester
course on Digital Signal Processing, and knowledge of Matlab.
Course exam The evaluation of the course will be performed through tests at
the end of the theoretical sessions plus an evaluation of the
practical sessions based on the code and results attained in the
laboratory.
