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.
