Raisa Velasco Casedo is a member of the Class of 2012 of Washington and Lee University.Thesis; [FULL-TEXT FREELY AVAILABLE ONLINE]This thesis presents an algorithm for spike detection designed to analyze data from induced ischemia experiments. Algorithm design and validation are discussed in detail. Other topics addressed include: electrical activity in the small intestine, electro-mechanical coupling in the intestine, observations during intestinal ischemia, previous spike detection methods, induced ischemia experimental details, signal contamination, need for automated method, algorithm performance analysis, and possible applications of the algorithm for future research.
