Biomedical Signal Analysis: A Case-Study Approach
By Rangaraj M. Rangayyan (December 2001)

This guide to biomedical signal analysis focuses on diagnostic challenges that medical professionals face. Each chapter begins with a description of a different biomedical signal problem followed by real-life case studies. Signal processing, modeling, and analysis techniques are presented.

The following titles, in the IEEE eBook Classics Collection, are available for free to IEEE members.

Handbook of Neural Engineering

Handbook of Neural Engineering
By Metin Akay (January 2007)

Provides a theoretical foundation in computational neural science and engineering and includes applications in wearable and implantable neural sensors and probes. Includes peer-reviewed papers on the brain-computer interface, nanoneural engineering, neural prostheses, imaging the brain, and neural signal processing. Other topics include how to measure functional, physiological, and metabolic activities in the brain and changes in neural networks after a stroke or spinal cord injury; and improvements in therapeutic applications using neural prostheses.
