The aim of this paper is to develop an automated system for epileptic seizure prediction from intracranial EEG signals based on Hilbert-Huang transform (HHT) and Bayesian classifiers. Proposed system includes decomposition of the signals into intrinsic mode functions for obtaining features and use of Bayesian networks with correlation based feature(More)
For a patient diagnosed with epilepsy, a neurological disorder that affects the patient only during a seizure, and the following short duration for some cases, it is important to predict a seizure before it happens. EEG signal processing plays an important role in detection and prediction of epileptic seizures. The aim of this study is to develop a patient(More)
Epilepsy is a neurological disorder that affects about 50 million people around the world. EEG signal processing plays an important role in detection and prediction of epileptic seizures. The aim of this study is to develop a method for early seizure prediction based on Hilbert-Huang Transform. In this patient specific method, EEG signals are decomposed(More)
This paper addresses the problem of emotion primitives estimation using information obtained from EEG signals. The EEG data were collected from 18 subjects, 9 male and 9 female, aged from 19 to 26 years old. We used audio clips from International Affective Digital Sounds (IADS) as stimuli for emotion elicitation. Hilbert-Huang Transform, a proper method for(More)
In this work, different wavelet types, that have been frequently used in EEG signal analysis and classification, are compared for cognitive EEG classification. EEG signals are collected from 18 healthy subjects during math processing and simple text reading. Symlet, coiflet and bior wavelet types are used for feature extraction and classification(More)
Epilepsy is a neurological disorder that affects a serious number of people all around the world. Detection of epileptic seizures using EEG signals occupies an important part in the diagnosis of epilepsy. The aim of this study is to develop a method for seizure detection based on Empirical Mode Decomposition. In this method, EEG signals are decomposed to(More)
Electroencephalography (EEG) has been used as a promising tool for investigation of brain activity during cognitive processes. The aim of this study is to reveal whether EEG signals can be used for classifying cognitive processes: arithmetic tasks and text reading. A recently introduced EEG database, which is constructed from 18 healthy subjects during a(More)
Emotions play an important role in human interaction. Emotion recognition should be considered to design an effective Brain-Computer Interface. In this work binary classification (low/high) for valence which is one of the primitives used in expressing emotions is performed. Hilbert-Huang Transform is used for feature extraction, multi layer feed forward(More)
In this study, we investigate the brain networks during positive and negative emotions for different types of stimulus (audio only, video only and audio + video) in $$\alpha , \beta$$ α , β , and $$\gamma$$ γ bands in terms of phase locking value, a nonlinear method to study functional connectivity. Results show notable hemispheric lateralization as phase(More)
