BMEN 8101 - Biomedical Digital Signal Processing
Signal processing theory for analyzing real world digital signals. Digital signal processing and mathematically derived algorithms for analysis of stochastic signals. Spectral analyses, noise cancellation, optimal filtering, blind source separation, beamforming techniques.
BMEN 5413 - Neural Decoding and Interfacing
BMEN 5920 - Neural Prosthetics
To provide an overview of the different types of neural interface technologies currently in use in patients as well as coverage of the biophysics, neural coding, and hardware features relating to their implementation in humans. The course will primarily focus on invasive neural implants that electrically interface with the peripheral or central nervous system. Neurophysiological principles and computational modeling of neurons, current flow through tissue, and the tissue-electrode interface will be covered to understand how electrical signals and information are transmitted between the device and neurons. Practical and ethical considerations for implanting these devices into humans are also presented.
BMEN 3101 - Bioelectricity and Bioinstrumentation
Principles of electrical phenomena, instruments relevant to biomedical applications.
