What It's About

This course is designed to introduce the students to the pathophysiology of common neurological diseases such as brain and spinal cord injuries, and to the application of systems engineering techniques in the study and treatment of these pathologies. The goals are to link neurological deficits with functional impairment, to review common practices for quantifying and treating these impairments, and to introduce engineering solutions that may enhance these current practices. The course will focus on systems level engineering approaches, including: principal component analysis, independent component analysis, time-frequency analysis, and linear/non-linear coherency analysis.
