A new stochastic estimator for tremor frequency tracking
An important parameter in analysis of physiological tremor is the diagnosis and study of neurological disorders. The instantaneous tremor frequency (ITF) is an important parameter in tremor analysis. This paper proposes a novel stochastic filter, the multiple extended Kalman filter (M-EKF), for tracking of ITF from neural microelectrode recordings. The M-EKF mitigates degradations in filter performance resulting from a mismatch between assumed initial conditions and those of a particular realization of a stochastic system. Specifically, the M-EKF is comprised of a bank of extended Kalman filters (EKF), each initialized with different conditions, selected according to the unscented transform. The final estimate is a weighted average of the individual estimates provided by each EKF where the weights reflect how closely the assumed EKF initial conditions match those of the true system. The M-EKF is applied to a synthetic tremor model to display its superior performance to that of ...
