Neural Signal Acquisition (GE, IM, EL)
This course will be an exploration of analog and digital signal processing techniques for measuring and characterizing neural signals. The analog portion will cover electrodes, amplifiers, filters and A/D converters for recording neural electrograms and EEGs. The digital portion will cover methods of EEG processing including spike detection and spike sorting. A course pack of relevant literature will be used in lieu of a textbook. Students will be required to write signal-processing algorithms. Prerequisite: Biomedical Engineering 354L.
