Electronics and Signal Processing for Experimental Rigs

Semester: 

Spring

Offered: 

2021

Course Director: John Assad

Course Instructors: Ofer Mazor, Pavel Gorelik

 

Course description:

Biomedical researchers often use, or even building, experimental rigs consisting of several interconnected electronic instruments. These rigs are typically used to make high-quality recordings of weak biological signals. The goal of this course is to demystify the rig: What does each instrument do? How should they be connected? How does one troubleshoot noise, or adjust settings in a principled way...

Microscopy Measurements: Considerations for accurate and precise quantitative microscopy

Semester: 

Spring

Offered: 

2020

Course Description

Fluorescence microscopy can be a very powerful tool for making quantitative spatial and intensity measurements . However, sources of error and imprecision are inherent in every modality of light microscopy and digital image acquisition, and can lead to inaccurate conclusions if left unaddressed. In this nanocourse, we will discuss common sources of inaccuracy and imprecision in quantitative microscopy, and how to identify and address them. In the virtual laboratory exercises, you will learn how to estimate signal-to-noise ratio and...
