The course includes theoretical-practical and laboratory sessions. In expository classes audiovisual equipment will be used. The practical classes are expository and are accompanied by suggested exercises that will require the application of the acquired knowledge. Student should participate in the solution of these exercises.In laboratory sessions students carry out the analysis of biosignals and small projects with the help of analysis and signal processing software, Matlab. The laboratory classes allow the analysis of signals in the context of applications for biosignals analysis and biomedical instrumentation. The laboratory activities are undertaken in order to develop critical thinking and synthesis of small projects involving teamwork.
