Biomedical engineering is a relatively new discipline which incorporates engineering principles into the medical field. Various fields are applied to this discipline including medical imaging and image processing, signal processing, bioinformatics and biomechanics.  The work of the department presently focuses mainly on the modeling and signal processing of physiological data, particularly electroencephalographic (EEG) data. Processing of EEG data is carried out with the goal of enhancing our knowledge about the underlying brain activity for the diagnosis of specific brain disorders such as epilepsy or Alzheimer’s disease, as well as for the recognition of specific mental states  as applicable, for example, in brain-computer interfaces (BCI).

Current work in this area includes:

   Localization of Brain Activity

   Brain-Computer Interfacing

   Modelling of EEG Data
