Reconstructing Time-Dependent Dynamics
—The usefulness of the information contained in biomedical data relies heavily on the reliability and accuracy of the methods used for its extraction. The conventional assumptions of stationarity and autonomicity break down in the case of living systems because they are thermodynamically open, and thus constantly interacting with their environments. This leads to an inherent time-variability and results in highly nonlinear, timedependent dynamics. The aim of signal analysis usually is to gain insight into the behaviour of the system from which the signal originated. Here, a range of signal analysis methods is presented and applied to extract information about time-varying oscillatory modes and their interactions. Methods are discussed for the characterization of signals and their underlying non-autonomous dynamics, including time-frequency analysis, decomposition, coherence analysis and dynamical Bayesian inference to study interactions and coupling functions. They are illustrated by...
