Sensory Signal Processing
Principal Investigator: Malvin Teich
Work carried out in the Sensory Signal Processing Laboratory centers on the statistical behavior and signal processing of biological signals. Particular projects include:
- Encoding of acoustical and optical stimuli into sequences of action potentials at various locations in auditory and visual systems.
- Using the wavelet transform of the electrocardiogram to distinguish patients with heart disease from normal ones.
- The study of neural-based psychophysical models that consider ascending sensory pathways as amplifying neural networks.
- The development of a quantum-optical microscope that should be useful for carrying out high-resolution fluorescence studies in the neurosciences.
