Chapter 32

Markov Models

Abstract

In this chapter, you will learn about modeling sequential phenomena using Markov processes. Simple Markov models will be introduced to characterize sequences in behavior. Hidden Markov models will be introduced with the HMM functions within the Statistics Toolbox in MATLAB®. Finally, hidden Markov models will be used to extract timing data from electrophysiological data by taking advantage of the sequential pattern in the waveform shape.
