|The Biomedical Signal Analysis Laboratory, joint
at Clarkson University and West Virginia University, focuses on processing
and interpretation of signals which arise from the human body. Signals
include the electrocardiogram, doppler measurements of blood flow,
biometric signals like fingerprints, pulse oximetry, and respiration.
These signals are used to predict and detect various cardiovascular
diseases (sudden cardiac death, heart failure, sudden infant death)
and to perform identification for security applications/health care.
Methods involve classic signal processing, statistical techniques,
pattern recognition, algorithm development and evaluation, and image
processing. Data is collected from cadaver, human, and animal studies
and all work involves the analysis of real data (as opposed to simulated).
Much of the biometric research is performed as part of the Center
for Identification Technology Research.
