time-frequency analysis

Thalamo-cortical dysrhythmia and its diagnostic principles

Aim. In the brain of mammals and humans, several widespread neuronal networks are capable of generating spontaneous rhythmic activity. Among them is the thalamo-cortical network, which involves neurons of the thalamus (diencephalon) and in the neocortex and characterized by hierarchical organization. The thalamo-cortical network generates alpha rhythms with a frequency of about 8...14 Hz. Various neurological and psychiatric disorders are known to associate with similar disturbances of thalamo-cortical rhythms, i.e. the thalamo-cortical dysrhythmia.

Time­frequency analysis of nonstationary processes: concepts of wavelets and empirical modes

A comparation of wavelets and empirical modes concepts is performed that represent the most perspective tools to study the structure of nonstationary multimode processes. Their advantages over the classical methods for time series analysis and restrictions of both approaches are discussed that needs to be known for correct interpretation of the obtained results. New possibilities in the study of signals structure at the presence of noise are illuctrated for digital single-channel experimental data of prospecting seismology.
