    Some of the key constituents of computerization in the biomedical sciences and clinical research are examined. The biomedical basic-science environment of the 1990s is viewed as a scientific 'union', typically spanning the activities of a genetic engineering resources center, a molecular modeling and dynamics laboratory, a visualization and imaging center, a biomedical signals processing laborator...

    The authors address using the concept of multimodal bioimage integration at the local area network level, using 3D MRI and PET data of the human head. Here, integration is intended between structural and functional multidimensional images of the same body area of a patient. They analyze the role of present technology and standards (such as the X Window protocol) in providing the physician with a b... View full abstract»

    The purpose and scope of the human genome project are discussed. Basic biological concepts underlying the project are reviewed. The two processes-logic and experimentation-used to understand DNA sequences are compared, and the process of obtaining the sequence is described. Two problem areas in this collaboration between biologists and computer scientists are examined. They arise from differences ... View full abstract»

    A review is given of the uses of programs written in languages that enable machines to respond to unrestricted, conversational natural language input, and their special requirements are addressed. The operation and applications of one particular system, the Computer Assisted Socratic Instruction Program, or CASIP, are described. CASIP is a dedicated authoring language written in C, comprising over... View full abstract»

    A real-time expert system that deciphers CO/sub 2/ waveforms (capnograms) is described. The Capnogram Analyzer Expert System (CAES) was designed using both traditional pattern-recognition methods and an artificial intelligence (AI) approach for signal description and classification. The pattern-recognition technique is used to extract features from the digitized CO/sub 2/ waveforms. The AI approac... View full abstract»

    The signal measuring methodology, stimuli, and signal processing methodology used in evoked potentials research are described. The typical method of measuring evoked potentials is to attach Ag-AgCL electrodes to the scalp at specific locations. Visual, auditory and somatosensory stimuli are used. Signal averaging remains one of the most widely used processing tools.<> View full abstract»
