Seminar course description

The course will follow the book "Biomedical Image Analysis", by Rangaraj M. Rangayyan, 2004 by CRC Press. Additional information will be taken from, e.g., "Functional Magnetic Resonance Imaging", by S. A. Huettel, A.W. Song and G. McCarthy, 2004 by Sinauer.

The goal of the seminar is to give an overview of some of the main biomedical image processing techniques, with clear emphasis to neuronal data. Topics range from artifact removal and image enhancement to pattern classification and diagnostic decision. Depending on the number of students, the course may cover a wider or shorter version of Rangayyan's book. Its table of contents can be found in here.


You need only the basic knowledge about probability and statistics, matrix algebra, and algorithms in order to follow the course. Basic neurophysiology and signal processing knowledge are a welcomed plus. The first lectures will be used to cover the necessary background.
