The course is focused to the native and evoked biosignals used in clinical medicine and current methods of capturing, processing, recording and evaluating in the time and frequency domains. For important biological signals, the students are introduced with their genesis, and nature and physiological characteristics of the signals required for construction of instruments. Students are introduced also with the physical and mathematical models. In laboratory exercises, students have the opportunity to capture their own biological signals and their subsequent processing in MATLAB.
