The subject deals with origins and description of the most important electric

and non-electric biological signals. The principles of generation, recording and

basic properties are studied in all the signals. The studied signals involve

native and evoked biosignals, including biological signals of the heart, brain,

muscles, nervous system, auditory signals, visual system, signals from the

gastro-intestinal system etc.


The subject can be completed by final exam which may be written, oral or combined.

Syllabus of lectures:

1.Biopotentials, stimulated and evoked, types, properties, recording, noise

2.Electroneurography, SNAP, M-wave, H-reflex, F-reflex

3.Muscle origin signals, EMG, MMG, tendon jerks

4.Cardiac depolarization vector, electrodes, elctrode systems

5.ECG signal generation, depolarization of the heart muscle

6.Vectorcardiography, isopotential maps

7.Phonocardiography, sphygmography, apexcardiography, MCG, polymethods

8.EEG signals origin, electrode systems

9.EEG signal properties, EEG rhythms, evoked EEG, MEG

10.Polysomnography. Signals in opthalmology, origins, electroretinogram, other signals

11.Auditory signals, origin, audiometry types, evoked signals, ERA, BERA

12.Nystagmography, biosignals in obstetrics, rheography methods

13.Biological signals of other systems: gastro-intestinal system, fetal ECG, cardiotocography

14.Experimental biosignal sensing, recording of biosignals using imaging systems, unconventional biosignals
