The performance of five non-parametric, univariate seizure detection schemes (embedding delay, Hurst scale, wavelet scale, nonlinear autocorrelation and variance energy) were evaluated as a function of the sampling rate of EEG recordings, the electrode types used for EEG acquisition, and the spatial location of the EEG electrodes in order to determine the(More)
High frequency oscillations (HFO) in limbic epilepsy represent a marked difference between abnormal and normal brain activity. Faced with the difficult of visually detecting HFOs in large amounts of intracranial EEG data, it is necessary to develop an automated process. This paper presents Teager Energy as a method of finding HFOs. Teager energy is an ideal(More)
We perform a systematic data analysis on high resolution (0.5–12 kHz) multiarray microelectrode recordings from an animal model of spontaneous limbic epilepsy, to investigate the role of high frequency oscillations and the occurrence of early precursors for seizures. Results of spectral analysis confirm the importance of very high frequency oscillations(More)
In this paper, a novel cortex-inspired feed-forward hierarchical object recognition system based on complex wavelets is proposed and tested. Complex wavelets contain three key properties for object representation: shift invariance, which enables the extraction of stable local features; good directional selectivity, which simplifies the determination of(More)
Cardiac ablation is increasingly used to interdict the complex propagation of excitatory waves during atrial fibrillation. While such procedures are useful, they can often fail. Here we use fluorescence imaging to observe the electrical activity of an ablated porcine heart. We find that, while ablation lines do attenuate cardiac waves, the attenuation is(More)
Epilepsy is a common neurological disorder that can have damaging effects in the brain including over 50% loss of neuronal activity in the hippocampal regions of the CA1 and CA3. The pre-ictal period was studied in an animal model of limbic epilepsy using Shannon entropy and correlation analysis. The primary aim was to uncover underlying relative changes in(More)
Selecting signal processing parameters in optical imaging by utilizing the change in Determinism, a measure introduced in Recurrence Quantification Analysis, provides a novel method using the change in residual noise Determinism for improving noise quantification and removal across signals exhibiting disparate underlying tissue pathologies. The method(More)
