This research proposes a generic methodology for dimensionality reduction upon time–frequency representations applied to the classification of different types of biosignals. The methodology directly deals with the highly redundant and irrelevant data contained in these representations, combining a first stage of irrelevant data removal by variable(More)
We introduce STOUT (spatio-temporal unifying tomography), a novel method for the source analysis of electroencephalograpic (EEG) recordings, which is based on a physiologically-motivated source representation. Our method assumes that only a small number of brain sources are active throughout a measurement, where each of the sources exhibits focal (smooth(More)
While a healthy human heart produce a rhythmic pattern of sounds, some heart disorder induce deviations perceived as abnormal sounds called murmurs. Despite many murmurs can be considered harmless, other constitute the first basis of a heart disorder. In this sense, a correct diagnosis remains essential; however, due to the subjectivity on using human ear(More)
This paper proposes a new solution for local binary fitting energy minimization based on graph cuts for automatic brain structure segmentation on magnetic resonance images. The approach establishes an effective way to embed the energy formulation into a directed graph, such that the energy is minimized by maximizing the graph flow. Proposed and conventional(More)
Time-frequency representations (TFR) are one of the most popular characterization methods for non-stationary biosignals. Despite of their potential advantages, these representations suffer of large quantity of redundant and irrelevant data which makes them difficult to use for classification purposes. In this work, a methodology for reduction of irrelevant(More)
We demonstrate a method to estimate key electrophysiological parameters from resting state data. In this paper, we focus on the estimation of head-position parameters. The recovery of these parameters is especially challenging as they are non-linearly related to the measured field. In order to do this we use an empirical Bayesian scheme to estimate the(More)
We present a novel iterative regularized algorithm (IRA) for neural activity reconstruction that explicitly includes spatiotemporal constraints, performing a trade-off between space and time resolutions. For improving the spatial accuracy provided by electroencephalography (EEG) signals, we explore a basis set that describes the smooth, localized areas of(More)
Heart rate variability (HRV) is one of the promising directions for a simple and noninvasive way for obstructive sleep apnea syndrome detection. The time-frequency representations has been proposed before to investigate the non-stationary properties of the HRV during either transient physiological or pathological episodes. Within the framework of the(More)
