Content, progress and pedagogy of the module

Learning objectives


Students who complete the module:

  • Have knowledge about different tools for joint-time-frequency analysis
  • Demonstrate understanding of the trade-off between time and frequency resolution in the analysis of a non-stationary signal
  • Can explain the relationships between time-frequency and wavelet analysis
  • Have knowledge about adaptive filtering and multivariate signal processing
  • Can identify different nonlinear tools that can be applied to analyze biomedical signals
  • Have knowledge about methods for estimation of features from biomedical signals


  • Can reflect on the choice of appropriate time-frequency distributions suitable to different biomedical problems
  • Can design wavelets for multi-resolution analysis of signals with specific biomedical applications such as filtering
  • Can evaluate appropriate adaptive filters suitable for the problem to solve
  • Can apply multivariate tools for classification and feature space reduction
  • Can analyze and describe nonlinear analysis methods
  • Can analyze and describe the frequency content of a biomedical signal with respect to time
  • Can handle de-noising of biomedical signals using various techniques such as wavelet and adaptive filters
