    Braincomputer interfaces (BCIs) allow their users to communicate or control external devices using brain signals rather than the brain's normal output pathways of peripheral nerves and muscles. Motivated by the hope of restoring independence to severely disabled individuals and by interest in further extending human control of external systems, researchers from many fields are engaged in this chal...

    Bionic cardiology is the medical science of exploring electronic control of the body, usually via the neural system. Mimicking or modifying biological regulation is a strategy used to combat diseases. Control of ventricular rate during atrial fibrillation by selective vagal stimulation, suppression of ischemia-related ventricular fibrillation by vagal stimulation, and reproduction of neurally comm...

    The development of low-dose spiral computed tomography (CT) has rekindled hope that effective lung cancer screening might yet be found. Screening is justified when there is evidence that it will extend lives at reasonable cost and acceptable levels of risk. A screening test should detect all extant cancers while avoiding unnecessary workups. Thus optimal screening modalities have both high sensiti... View full abstract»

    Advances in neural signal and image acquisition as well as in multivariate signal processing and machine learning are enabling a richer and more rigorous understanding of the neural basis of human decision-making. Decision-making is essentially characterized behaviorally by the variability of the decision across individual trials - e.g., error and response time distributions. To infer the neural p...

    The control of diabetes is an interdisciplinary endeavor, which includes a significant biomedical engineering component, with traditions of success beginning in the early 1960s. It began with modeling of the insulin-glucose system, and progressed to large-scale in silico experiments, and automated closed-loop control (artificial pancreas). Here, we follow these engineering efforts through the last... View full abstract»

    The author discusses recent progress in personal health records (PHR). The column is structured as follows: first, a look at what is driving health reform concluding with the need to make "value" the first priority. The role of citizens and patients in the value drive is then discussed. They must be empowered to act as co-producers in cooperation with healthcare professionals. Lastly, the role of ...

    Biomedical signals carry fundamental information about the nature and the status of the living systems under study. A proper processing of these signals obtains useful physiological and clinical information. A closer integration between signal processing and modeling of the relevant biological systems is capable to directly attribute pathophysiological meaning to the parameters obtained from the p...
