Circuits, Signals and Systems for Bioengineers: A MATLAB-Based Introduction, Third Edition, guides the reader through the electrical engineering principles that can be applied to biological systems. It details the basic engineering concepts that underlie biomedical systems, medical devices, biocontrol and biomedical signal analysis, providing a solid foundation for students in important bioengineering concepts.

Fully revised and updated to better meet the needs of instructors and students, the third edition introduces and develops concepts through computational methods that allow students to explore operations, such as correlations, convolution, the Fourier transform and the transfer function. New chapters have been added on image analysis, noise, stochastic processes and ergodicity, and new medical examples and applications are included throughout the text.

Key Features

  • Covers current applications in biocontrol, with examples from physiological systems modeling, such as the respiratory system
  • Includes revised material throughout, with improved clarity of presentation and more biological, physiological and medical examples and applications
  • Includes a new chapter on noise, stochastic processes, non-stationary and ergodicity
  • Includes a separate new chapter featuring expanded coverage of image analysis
  • Includes support materials, such as solutions, lecture slides, MATLAB data and functions needed to solve the problems

About the Authors

John Semmlow Author

John Semmlow was a professor in the Department of Biomedical Engineering of Rutgers University and in the Department of Surgery of Robert Wood Johnson Medical School UMDNJ for 32 years. Over that period he published over 100 review journal articles and has been appointed a Fellow of the IEEE, the AIMBE, and the BMES. He retired in June of 2010, but still remains active in research, particularly cardiovascular diagnosis and human motor control. He is actively pursuing a ‘second career’ as an artist, designing and building computer controlled kinetic art: sculptures that move in interesting and intriguing ways.
