% function [normalised_signal] = normalise_signal(signal)
%
% This function subtracts the mean and divides by the standard deviation of
% a (1D) signal in order to normalise it for machine learning applications.
%
%% Inputs:
% signal: the original signal
%
%% Outputs:
% normalised_signal: the original signal, minus the mean and divided by
% the standard deviation.
