This study identifies characteristic features in scalp EEG that simultaneously give the best discrimination between epileptic seizures and background EEG in minimally pre-processed scalp data; and have minimal computational complexity to be suitable for online, real-time analysis. The discriminative performance of 65 previously reported features has been(More)
Real signals are often corrupted by noise with a power spectrum variable over time. In applications involving these signals, it is expected that dynamically estimating and correcting for this noise would increase the amount of useful information extracted from the signal. One such application is scalp EEG monitoring in epilepsy, where electrical activity(More)
Signal normalization is an essential part of patient independent algorithms, for example to correct for variations in signal amplitude from different parts of the body, prior to applying a fixed threshold for event detection. Multiple methods for providing the required normalization are available. This paper presents a systematic investigation into the(More)
Accurate automated seizure detection remains a desirable but elusive target for many neural monitoring systems. While much attention has been given to the different feature extractions that can be used to highlight seizure activity in the EEG, very little formal attention has been given to the normalization that these features are routinely paired with.(More)
Real signals are often corrupted by noise. In applications where the noise power spectrum is variable with time, dynamic noise estimation and compensation can potentially improve the performance of signal processing algorithms. One such application is scalp EEG monitoring in epilepsy, where the electrical activity generated by cranio-facial muscle(More)
Improving seizure detection performance relies not only on novel signal processing approaches but also on new accurate, reliable and comparable performance reporting to give researchers better and fairer tools for understanding the true algorithm operation. This paper investigates the sensitivity of current performance metrics to the duration of data that(More)
This talk will provide an introduction to the "Towards future truly wearable medical devices: from application to ASIC" mini-symposium. For user comfort and acceptance long term physiological sensors must be discrete, comfortable and easy to use. These requirements place stringent limits on all aspects of the system design: from the overall application aim,(More)
A novel linear phase programmable delay is being proposed and implemented in a 0.35 μm CMOS process. The delay line consists of N cascaded cells, each of which delays the input signal by Td/N, where Td is the total line delay. The delay generated by each cell is programmable by changing a clock frequency and is also fully independent of the frequency of the(More)
Seizure detection algorithms have been developed to solve specific problems, such as seizure onset detection, occurrence detection, termination detection and data selection. It is thus inherent that each type of seizure detection algorithm would detect a different EEG characteristic (feature). However most feature comparison studies do not specify the(More)
