Abstract - 
                  Our physiological system generates various signals which if listened to properly, may lead to a better understanding of underlying physiological state. It may not be necessary to invade the body for this always but appreciate the signals human body generates on its own through non-invasive approach. It could be heart sound, lung sound, electrocardiogram, electroencephalogram etc. or other physiological variables which often are buried under noise or are not acquired, analyzed and interpreted properly. The talk will discuss appreciation of heart and ling sound through signal processing approach.
