Nonlinear estimation of coupling and directionality between signals: Application to uterine EMG propagation.

Abstract : Understanding the direction and quantity of information flowing in a complex system is a fundamental task in signal processing. Several measures have been proposed to detect the quantity of synchronization and the directionality between time series and in physiological data. In this paper we use two methods that are widely used in synchronization and directionality analysis: Nonlinear correlation coefficient (h(2)) and the general synchronization (H). The performances of both methods were tested on four dimensional coupled synthetic nonlinear Rössler models. They were then applied to a single real labor contraction uterine EMG burst with the aim of using them to detect synchronization and to plot the map of direction of information flow between the whole signal channels. The results on synthetic signal show a slight superiority of H over h(2). The results obtained on a single contraction are encouraging for the future use of these tools for resolving the open question of the directionality of uterine contractions and may provide a way of finding their source loci.
