The variability of electric and magnetic signals from the heart during the depolarization phase is investigated. A signal processing method is developed, which provides estimates for the beat-to-beat variability of the QRS-complex. The method is based on the decomposition of the depolarization signal into bandpass signals by means of the Morlet wavelet(More)
A semi-parametric approach for the quantitative analysis of magnetic resonance (MR) spectra is proposed and an uncertainty analysis is given. Single resonances are described by parametric models or by parametrized in vitro spectra and the baseline is determined nonparametrically by regularization. By viewing baseline estimation in a reproducing kernel(More)
DC-magnetoencephalography (DC-MEG) technique has been refined and allows to record cortical activity in the infraslow frequency range less than 0.1 Hz noninvasively. Important questions however, remained, especially, how specific these infraslow activations can be recorded and whether different activations, for example, motor versus acoustic, can be(More)
The compensation of LTI systems and the evaluation of the according uncertainty is of growing interest in metrology. Uncertainty evaluation in metrology ought to follow specific guidelines, and recently two corresponding uncertainty evaluation schemes have been proposed for FIR and IIR filtering. We employ these schemes to compare an FIR and an IIR approach(More)
Two methods for single-trial analysis were compared, an established parametric template approach and a recently proposed non-parametric method based on complex bandpass filtering. The comparison was carried out by means of pseudo-real simulations based on magnetoencephalography measurements of cortical responses to auditory signals. The comparison focused(More)
