Title: Measuring the Clock Drift of Biomedical Rhythms * Oberseminar Nichtlineare Dynamik

Time: Mon, Jun 29, 2015, 14:15

Place: bldg 28, room 2.100

Many vital biomedical systems generate an intrinsic rhythmicity. It is of great interest to find proper metrics to understand and to classify these rhythms, for example the heart beat, pulmonary respiration, or brain-electrical activity. Common to different types of rhythmicity is the ordered recurrence of characteristic features. We can decompose a rhythm into phases characterized by these features. It is such a decomposition, that allows us define the every-day phase metrics of frequency, amplitude, and variability. In my talk, I will discuss how we can measure the oscillation variability without knowing how exactly the dynamical states can be described as phases.
