Characterization and Control from Biomedical Time Series

4:00 PM-6:00 PM
Hibiscus & Ilima (Salon 3 & 4)

What types of biological information are encoded in biomedical signals? Recent advances in data analysis have created opportunities to bring dynamical systems techniques to bear on this question. Two important and related directions are to give a dynamical characterization of recorded signals, and to determine ways to intervene in the system to achieve a particular goal behavior. The speakers describe new progress on these problems, applied to physiological data such as ECG and tremor, and to firing records of individual neurons and neural ensembles.
