Title: Mapping of Human Body by Fractal Analysis and Modelling of the Relation Between Different Bio Signals

Analysis of the influence of external stimuli on human body is one the major issues in physiological science. On the other hand, it is known that the brain controls all activities of human body. In fact, it is known that the brain sends the impulses to different organs after receiving and processing of external stimuli in order to regulate human body activities. Therefore, the reaction of different organs to external stimuli should be related to the brain’s reaction to those stimuli. Analysis of the organ’s related signal is one of the major tools to investigate its activity. In this research we generate a map of human body by decoding of the relation between different bio signals. For this purpose, initially we consider the brain, heart, skin, and muscle activities by recording the Electroencephalography (EEG), Electrocardiography (ECG), Galvanic Skin Response (GSR) and Electromyography (EMG) signals respectively. Since, different bio signals have complex structures, we benefit from fractal theory in order to analyse, and also make the relation between the characteristics of different recorded bio signals by mathematical modelling. Since, the brain controls human body through the nervous system, we hypothesize that we can generate a map of human body activity in this research.
