Paper Abstract

Representative results from simulated, laboratory and physiological studies are presented, demonstrating the ability to extract important features of dynamic behavior from dense scattering media. These results were obtained by analyzing a time series of image data. Investigations on the human forearm clearly reveal the ability to identify and correctly locate principal features of the vasculature. Characterization of these features using linear and nonlinear time-series analysis methods can produce a wealth of information regarding the spatio-temporal features of the dynamics of vascular reactivity.
