The subject deals with origins and description of the most important electric
and non-electric biological signals. The principles of generation, recording and
basic properties are studied in all the signals. The studied signals involve
native and evoked biosignals, including biological signals of the heart, brain,
muscles, nervous system, auditory signals, visual system, signals from the
gastro-intestinal system etc.
1.Biopotentials, stimulated and evoked, types, properties, recording, noise
