Special Issue Information
Biological signals are broadly defined as the range of measurable signals related to physiological processes that can be continuously monitored. These include electrophysiological signals; the primary signals of this type are the electrocardiogram (ECG), the electroencephalogram (EEG) and the electromyogram (EMG). These signals can be non-invasively recorded from the skin surface, and then processed and analyzed to extract useful information on the normal and pathological functioning of biological systems. This information can be used for medical diagnosis, to track patient responses to treatments, and to assess physical and emotional status. Additionally, input signals for human computer interfaces or robotic actuators can be derived from the processed signals.
For this Special Issue, we invite authors to submit papers that focus on ECG, EEG and EMG (including high-density or HD-EMG) recording and advanced analysis of the recorded data, using analytical models, statistical approaches or machine-learning techniques (both supervised and unsupervised) to achieve an improved understanding of physiological systems, for medical diagnosis or for deriving control signals for human–machine interfaces.

Manuscript Submission Information
Manuscripts should be submitted online at www.mdpi.com by registering and logging in to this website. Once you are registered, click here to go to the submission form. Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline. All submissions that pass pre-check are peer-reviewed. Accepted papers will be published continuously in the journal (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as short communications are invited. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the Editorial Office for announcement on this website.
Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts are thoroughly refereed through a single-blind peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. Sensors is an international peer-reviewed open access semimonthly journal published by MDPI.
Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. The Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal is 2400 CHF (Swiss Francs). Submitted papers should be well formatted and use good English. Authors may use MDPI's English editing service prior to publication or during author revisions.
