The Neurophysiological Biomarker Toolbox (NBT)



List of NBT Biomarkers

The following biomarkers have been implemented in NBT. This is only a list of the major biomarker objects, check each biomarker to see details.

FIXME this list needs to be updated and offer link to a more detailed description of the individual biomarkers!

Spectral biomarkers

  • Amplitudes in classical frequency bands (1-3 Hz, 3-7 Hz, 8-13 Hz, 16-36 Hz, 36-45 Hz)
  • Hjorth's activity, mobility and complexity
  • Barlow's frequency, amplitude and spectral purity index
  • Wackermann's global field strength SIGMA, the global frequency PHI and a measure of spatial complexity OMEGA
  • Spectral biomarkers based on the power spectrum (Peak frequency, Central frequency, individual alpha frequency etc.)
  • Time-domain parameters

Between Channels/ Cross frequency bands

Within Channels

Criticality biomarkers

  • DFA of amplitude envelope (Linkenkaer-Hansen et al., 2001)
  • Branching ratio
  • Kappa index of avalanche size and duration (Palva et al., PNAS 2013)
  • Phase-locking interval distribution
  • Mean and variance of synchronization (Yang et al., J Neurosci 2012)
