Biomedical signals are electrical signals collected from the body. Some of the most common ones are the electrocardiogram (ECG) and the electroencephalogram (EEG). These signals are of great value because they can be used for diagnostic purposes. Importantly, most of them can be collected using non-invasive methods. These attributes, together with the tremendous recent advances in electronic and digital processing technology, have made biomedical signal data an important source of data used in medical diagnostics.
