Summary: Professor Christopher James delivers a lecture on Neural Signal Processing: Measuring and extracting information from brain signals .

This talk from Prof. Christopher James - Professor of Healthcare Technology, and co-director Institute of Digital Healthcare, WMG, will introduce the varied signals measured from the human brain under varying conditions and will highlight the information that these signals can yield. From the diagnosis of epilepsy, to the prediction of epileptic seizures, scalp recordings of the electrical activity of the brain can be used to tell much about when and where activity of interest is happening within the brain. However brain signal recordings can yield much more information in other areas too, such as in monitoring the behaviour of children with ADHD as well as in monitoring brain plasticity after cochlear implantation in deaf children. This presentation will talk about the issues surrounding the analysis of these complex signals and will touch on where brain signal analysis may be going – especially in brain-computer interfacing. .

Andrew Little is an alumnus of the School of Engineering at Warwick, who has made a huge success out of pioneering the automated supply of books for mail order companies such as Amazon. He has kindly funded the School to establish a lecture series of general engineering interest.
