The joint study of respiratory and cardiac activity suggests indirect methods to derive the respiratory signal by electrocardiogram (ECG) processing. Potential advantages of such methods are low cost, high convenience, and continuous noninvasive respiratory monitoring. Recent works show that the respiratory signal can be accurately evaluated by… (More)
A complex network approach is combined with time dynamics in order to conduct a space-time analysis applicable to longitudinal studies aimed to characterize the progression of Alzheimer's disease (AD) in individual patients. The network analysis reveals how patient-specific patterns are associated with disease progression, also capturing the widespread… (More)
Epilepsy is the most diffuse brain disorder that can affect people's lives even on its early stage. In this paper, we used for the first time the spiking neural networks (SNN) framework called NeuCube for the analysis of electroencephalography (EEG) data recorded from a person affected by Absence Epileptic (AE), using permutation entropy (PE) features. Our… (More)
A novel technique of quantitative EEG for differentiating patients with early-stage Creutzfeldt-Jakob disease (CJD) from other forms of rapidly progressive dementia (RPD) is proposed. The discrimination is based on the extraction of suitable features from the time-frequency representation of the EEG signals through continuous wavelet transform (CWT). An… (More)
In this paper, we address the issue of dealing with huge amounts of data from recordings of an Electroencephalogram (EEG) in epileptic patients. In particular, the attention is focused on the development of tools to support the neurophysiologists in the time consuming and challenging task of reviewing the EEG to identify critical events that are worth of… (More)
