Signal Processing for Neuroscientists, Second Edition provides an introduction to signal processing and modeling for those with a modest understanding of algebra, trigonometry and calculus. With a robust modeling component, this book describes modeling from the fundamental level of differential equations all the way up to practical applications in neuronal modeling. It features nine new chapters and an exercise section developed by the author. Since the modeling of systems and signal analysis are closely related, integrated presentation of these topics using identical or similar mathematics presents a didactic advantage and a significant resource for neuroscientists with quantitative interest. Although each of the topics introduced could fill several volumes, this book provides a fundamental and uncluttered background for the non-specialist scientist or engineer to not only get applications started, but also evaluate more advanced literature on signal processing and modeling. Includes an introduction to biomedical signals, noise characteristics, recording techniques, and the more advanced topics of linear, nonlinear and multi-channel systems analysis Features new chapters on the fundamentals of modeling, application to neuronal modeling, Kalman filter, multi-taper power spectrum estimation, and practice exercises Contains the basics and background for more advanced topics in extensive notes and appendices Includes practical examples of algorithm development and implementation in MATLAB Features a companion website with MATLAB scripts, data files, figures and video lectures

Web applications are used every day by millions of users, which is why they are one of the most popular vectors for attackers. Obfuscation of code has allowed hackers to take one attack and create hundreds-if not millions-of variants that can evade your security measures. Web Application Obfuscation takes a look at common Web infrastructure and security controls from an attacker's perspective, allowing the reader to understand the shortcomings of their security systems. Find out how an attacker would bypass different types of security controls, how these very security controls introduce new types of vulnerabilities, and how to avoid common pitfalls in order to strengthen your defenses. Named a 2011 Best Hacking and Pen Testing Book by InfoSec Reviews Looks at security tools like IDS/IPS that are often the only defense in protecting sensitive data and assets Evaluates Web application vulnerabilties from the attacker's perspective and explains how these very systems introduce new types of vulnerabilities Teaches how to secure your data, including info on browser quirks, new attacks and syntax tricks to add to your defenses against XSS, SQL injection, and more

"Signal Processing for Neuroscientists introduces analysis techniques primarily aimed at neuroscientists and biomedical engineering students with a reasonable but modest background in mathematics, physics, and computer programming. The focus of this text is on what can be considered the 'golden trio' in the signal processing field: averaging, Fourier analysis, and filtering. Techniques such as convolution, correlation, coherence, and wavelet analysis are considered in the context of time and frequency domain analysis. The whole spectrum of signal analysis is covered, ranging from data acquisition to data processing; and from the mathematical background of the analysis to the practical application of processing algorithms. Overall, the approach to the mathematics is informal with a focus on basic understanding of the methods and their interrelationships rather than detailed proofs or derivations. One of the principle goals is to provide the reader with the background required to understand the principles of commercially available analyses software, and to allow him/her to construct his/her own analysis tools in an environment such as MATLAB. - Multiple color illustrations are integrated in the text. - Includes an introduction to biomedical signals, noise characteristics, and recording techniques. - Basics and background for more advanced topics can be found in extensive notes and appendices."--Publisher's description.

Simulation ist neben Theorie und Experiment die dritte Säule wissenschaftlicher Forschung und technischer Entwicklung. Computer-Berechnungen sind zu einer wesentlichen Antriebskraft im Bereich der Technik und der Naturwissenschaften geworden. Speziell für diese Anwendungsbereiche wurde MATLAB entwickelt. MATLAB ist ein auf mathematisch/numerischen Methoden beruhendes Problemlösungswerkzeug, das sowohl bequeme Benutzeroberflächen bietet, als auch die individuelle Programmierung gestattet. MATLAB hat sich durch seine Erweiterungsmöglichkeit in Form von "Toolboxen" zu einem universell einsetzbaren Werkzeug auf den verschiedensten Gebieten (Simulation, Signalverarbeitung, Regelungstechnik, Fuzzy Logic, etc.) entwickelt.

Die Messung der elektrodermalen Aktivität stellt wohl die mit Abstand am häufigsten verwendete Methode zur Erfassung physiologischer Begleiterscheinungen psychischer Vorgänge dar. Mit dieser Monographie wird erstmals eine Gesamtdarstellung vorgelegt: in ihr sind die anatomischen, physiologischen, physikalischen und psychologischen Grundlagen integriert, die Methodik sowie - einführungsartig - die Verwendung elektrodermaler Meßtechniken in den wichtigsten Anwendungsbereichen der beteiligten Disziplinen beschrieben. Das Buch ist als Standardwerk anzusehen. Es informiert über zentrale und periphere Mechanismen der elektrodermalen Aktivität sowie entsprechenden Modellvorstellungen. Es vermittelt die Grundlagen der Meßtechniken, die Methoden der Erfassung, Registrierung und Weiterverarbeitung elektrodermaler Phänomene. Der Methodenteil ist mit konkreten Anleitungen versehen und wird durch einen Beitrag von E. Thom zur computerunterstützten Auswertung ergänzt. Der umfangreiche Anwendungsteil behandelt schwerpunktmäßig die Gebiete der allgemeinen, differentiellen und klinischen Psychophysiologie, zusätzlich arbeitspsychologische und forensische Anwendungen. Auch auf die Einsatzmöglichkeiten in der Neurologie, Psychiatrie, Dermatologie und inneren Medizin wird eingegangen.
