We propose a novel method for automatic recognition of alertness level from full spectrum electroencephalogram (EEG) recordings. This procedure uses power spectral density (PSD) of discrete wavelet transform (DWT) of full spectrum EEG as an input to an artificial neural network (ANN) with three discrete outputs: alert, drowsy and sleep. The error back(More)
Since EEG is one of the most important sources of information in therapy of epilepsy, several researchers tried to address the issue of decision support for such a data. In this paper, we introduce two fundamentally different approaches for designing classification models (classifiers); the traditional statistical method based on logistic regression and the(More)
In this study, EEG signals were analyzed using autoregressive (AR) method. Parameters in AR method were realized by using maximum likelihood estimation (MLE). Results were compared with fast Fourier transform (FFT) method. It is observed that AR method gives better results in the analysis of EEG signals. On the other hand, the results have also showed that(More)
Electroencephalography (EEG) is widely used in clinical settings to investigate neuropathology. Since EEG signals contain a wealth of information about brain functions, there are many approaches to analyzing EEG signals with spectral techniques. In this study, the short-time Fourier transform (STFT) and wavelet transform (WT) were applied to EEG signals(More)
Approximately 1% of the people in the world suffer from epilepsy. Careful analyses of the electroencephalograph (EEG) records can provide valuable insight and improved understanding of the mechanisms causing epileptic disorders. Predicting the onset of epileptic seizure is an important and difficult biomedical problem, which has attracted substantial(More)
The electromyography (EMG) signals give information about different features of muscle function. Real-time measurements of EMG have been used to observe the dissociation between the electrical and mechanical measures that occurs with fatigue. The purpose of this study was to detect fatigue of biceps brachia muscle using time-frequency methods and(More)
Brain is one of the most critical organs of the body. Synchronous neuronal discharges generate rhythmic potential fluctuations, which can be recorded from the scalp through electroencephalography. The electroencephalogram (EEG) can be roughly defined as the mean electrical activity measured at different sites of the head. EEG patterns correlated with normal(More)
The purpose of the work described in this paper is to investigate the use of autoregressive (AR) model by using maximum likelihood estimation (MLE) also interpretation and performance of this method to extract classifiable features from human electroencephalogram (EEG) by using Artificial Neural Networks (ANNs). ANNs are evaluated for accuracy, specificity,(More)
In this study, 5-s long sequences of full-spectrum electroencephalogram (EEG) recordings were used for classifying alert versus drowsy states in an arbitrary subject. EEG signals were obtained from 30 healthy subjects and the results were classified using a wavelet-based neural network. The wavelet-based neural network model, employing the multilayer(More)
In voluntary movements, functional role of synchronized neuronal activity in the human motor system is important to detect and diagnose of the some diseases. In some previous studies, EEG signals and responses belong to an exercise are examined and an increased EEG activity reported in alpha frequency band. The reason of this is not clear whether a change(More)
