Skills to be acquired in this module
This course introduces basic concepts of statistics and signal processing and applies them to real world examples of biomedical data. In the second part of the course, recorded datasets are noise-reduced, analyzed, and discussed in views of which statistical tests and analysis methods are appropriate for the underlying data. The course forms a bridge between theory and application and offers the students the means and tools to set up and analyze their future data sets in a meaningful manner.
Module contents
Normal distributions and significance testing, Monte-Carlo boot strap techniques, Linear regression, Correlation, Signal-to-noise estimation, Principal component analysis, Confidence intervals, Dipole source analysis, Analysis of variance. Each technique is explained, tested and discussed in the exercises
