Introductory Neuroscience & Neuro-Instrumentation

Indian Institute of Technology Bangalore and NPTEL via Swayam


This course is a systems, design-oriented course aimed to provide exposure to Neuroscience and its importance in the real world. Neuroscience and Neuro- Instrumentation are popular research areas and this course is an introduction to both. The emphasis is on Electro-physiology with an introduction to standard Biological Stimulators and signal conditioning circuits. Expected course outcomes:
• Introduction to EEG and Event-Related Potentials (ERPs).
• Introduction to Brain-Computer Interface (BCI) and its applications.
• Applications using ERPs to screen for disorders of Cognition.
• Introduction to ERP stimulators and signal conditioning circuits.
• Demonstration of EEGLab and ERPLab for EEG and ERP signal processing
