In medical applications, we analyze physiological data collected under several conditions (e.g., during low and high salt diets). We are studying methods that may eventually help assess and monitor diseases and how individual patients respond to medication.
Our systems have been used to measure several physiological signals, including:
- transcranial Doppler (TCD) measures of cerebral blood velocity,
- impedance cardiography, and
- physical movement.
We have used our systems in studies involving PET and near-infrared spectroscopy (these measures are provided by the research collaborator).
