In recent years there has been rapid progress in the development of signal processing in general, and more specifically in the application of signal processing and pattern analysis to biological signals. Techniques, such as parametric and nonparametric spectral estimation, higher order spectral estimation, time-frequency methods, wavelet transform, and identifi­ cation of nonlinear systems using chaos theory, have been successfully used to elucidate basic mechanisms of physiological and mental processes. Similarly, biological signals recorded during daily medical practice for clinical diagnostic procedures, such as electroen­ cephalograms (EEG), evoked potentials (EP), electromyograms (EMG) and electrocardio­ grams (ECG), have greatly benefitted from advances in signal processing. In order to update researchers, graduate students, and clinicians, on the latest developments in the field, an International Symposium on Processing and Pattern Analysis of Biological Signals was held at the Technion-Israel Institute of Technology, during March 1995. This book contains 27 papers delivered during the symposium. The book follows the five sessions of the symposium. The first section, Processing and Pattern Analysis of Normal and Pathological EEG, accounts for some of the latest developments in the area of EEG processing, namely: time varying parametric modeling; non-linear dynamic modeling of the EEG using chaos theory; Markov analysis; delay estimation using adaptive least-squares filtering; and applications to the analysis of epileptic EEG, EEG recorded from psychiatric patients, and sleep EEG.

Processing of epileptic EEG/temporal encoding of visual features by cortical neurons/multi-channel EMG processing.

Editorial Reviews

Twenty-seven papers from the March 1995 seminar consider processing and pattern analysis of normal and pathological EEG; of psychophysiological phenomena; of neuronal cell activity; of ECG in health and disease; and of EMG and human movement. A sampling of topics: modeling and estimation of amplitude and time shifts in single evoked potential components; detection and quantification of correlations in neural populations by coherence analysis; and characterizing and modeling human arm movements.
