Summary

 

Digital Biosignal Processing - BIOE96023

Aims

 

This course will introduce the basic concepts and techniques for representing, transforming, and processing discrete-time signals. The course emphasizes practical implementations of the theoretical concepts on biomedical applications.

The course specifically aims at:

·         Introducing the fundamental principles for characterizing discrete-time signals and systems

·         Presenting methods for analysing and processing discrete-time signals

·         Discussing and demonstrating relevant representative applications of biosignal processing

 

Role

Course Leader

Brain Machine Interfaces (PG) - BIOE97075

Aims

This course introduces a technology that is no longer the domain of science fiction, but has become science and is partially used already in clinical settings: the interfacing of the human brain to electronic circuitry. The course will emphasize currently developed and used technologies such as brain-machine interfaces (e.g. for the restoration of movement and communication capabilities of paralyzed patients) and deep-brain stimulation (such as for treatment of Parkinson`s disease).

Lecturer

Brain Machine Interfaces (UG) - BIOE97130

Aims

In this module you will be introduced to a technology that is no longer the domain of science fiction, but has become science and is partially used already in clinical settings: the interfacing of the human brain to electronic circuitry. The course will emphasize currently developed and used technologies such as brain-machine interfaces (e.g. for the restoration of movement and communication capabilities of paralyzed patients) and deep-brain stimulation (such as for treatment of Parkinson`s disease).

Role

Lecturer

Mechanics and Electronics 1 - BIOE40006

Aims

Mechanics

To teach students introductory Newtonian mechanics - including equations of motion, conservation of linear and angular momentum, and conservation of energy - with specific consideration given to particle mechanics and rigid body mechanics, and to show how these concepts can be used to study bioengineering problems. 

To introduce students to the principles of mechanics and electronics
To demonstrate the mathematical connections between these topics
To build students practical experience in electronics and mechanics labs
To show how these concepts can be used to study bioengineering problems
 
Electronics
 
This module will provide students with an introduction to Electrical Engineering:

 

  • Specifically, to introduce them to the common components used in electronic equipment, the functions they perform, and the way they can usefully be interconnected to form circuits.
  • To introduce students to the various techniques available to predict the performance of circuits.

Students will be taught over three terms using a combination of lectures, labs and study groups. Lecture sessions will be made available on Panopto for review and supplemented with technologies to promote active engagement during the lecture such as 'learning catalytics'. Study groups focusing on problem sheets will be based on taught content from lectures to reinforce these topics and allow students to test their understanding. Labs will focus on building practical skills and reinforcing the theoretical topics discussed in lectures.

Vibrations and Waves

To give students a theoretical and practical introduction to basic fundamental concepts in maths, engineering and physics
