|Overview:||This course presents the fundamentals of digital signal processing with particular emphasis on problems in biomedical research and clinical medicine. It covers principles and algorithms for processing both deterministic and random signals. Topics include data acquisition, imaging, filtering, coding, feature extraction, and modeling. The focus of the course is a series of labs that provide practical experience in processing physiological data, with examples from cardiology, speech processing, and medical imaging. The labs are done in MATLABŪ during weekly lab sessions that take place in an electronic classroom. Lectures cover signal processing topics relevant to the lab exercises, as well as background on the biological signals processed in the labs.|
|Submission:||Problem sets and lab reports must be submitted as either:
Requests for extensions beyond the original due date should be made in advance via email to firstname.lastname@example.org. Please explain the circumstances necessitating the extension and propose a revised due date. Here are some examples of the types of circumstances that will generally be met with sympathy and flexibility: illness, conference travel, interview travel, multiple major assignments due in other classes on the same day.
In the absence of an approved extension, late assignments will be penalized one full point for each two days past the original deadline. (Problem sets are graded on a 4-point scale; labs are graded on a 10-point scale.)
Problem sets are graded on a 0-4 scale, as follows:
