Indian Institute of Science Bangalore and NPTEL via Swayam

This course may be unavailable.


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 processingINTENDED AUDIENCE :Engineering Students, Faculty from Engineering Colleges, Medical StudentsPREREQUISITES :Basic ElectronicsINDUSTRIES SUPPORT :None
