My research involves the analysis of neonatal brain waves using advanced signal processing techniques. I am using the computer to automate the visual interpretation of the experienced (some say wizened) neurophysiologist. The automation of this interpretive process provides the experience of a trained neurophysiologist, around the clock, to clinical settings that may not have such access. Automation of neonatal brain wave analysis has the potential to be applied when long periods of data must be considered (for prognosis) or when the speed of a decision is crucial (for diagnosis).
