ELEC 583 - ELECTROMAGNETISM AND THE BRAIN
Long Title: ELECTROMAGNETISM AND THE BRAIN
Department: Electrical & Computer Eng.
Grade Mode: Standard Letter
Language of Instruction: Taught in English
Course Type: Lecture
Credit Hours: 3
Must be enrolled in one of the following Level(s):
Description: Human brain activity is a specific form bioelectromagnetism commonly referred to as “brain signals” generated by EM fields that can be detected with electric and magnetic sensors. This class will develop your intuition of brain signals through lectures and in-class physics and biophysics modeling. Topics include EM, biophysics, spectral analysis, forward modeling, reciprocity, source localization, and the electrode/insulator design. Your final team project will build a finite element model (FEM) of brain activity and/or biophysical model and analyze those signals in a specific application. Recommended Prerequisite(s): Introductory courses in physics and time-series signal analysis, e.g., ELEC 242 Mutually Exclusive: Cannot register for ELEC 583 if student has credit for ELEC 481.
