In this paper, we investigate the dynamical scenarios of transitions between normal and paroxysmal state in epilepsy. We assume that some epileptic neural network are bistable i.e., they feature two operational states, ictal and interictal that co-exist. The transitions between these two states may occur according to a Poisson process, a random walk process(More)
PURPOSE In Genetic Absence Epilepsy Rats from Strasbourg (GAERS), age-related absence seizures start to appear from postnatal day (PN) 30 concomitant with 'spike and wave discharges' (SWDs) appearing on cortical EEG recordings. The aim of this study was to investigate the effect of early chronic levetiracetam (LEV) treatment on the development of SWDs in(More)
In ambient intelligence object recognition is an important step towards behaviour analysis and the understanding interactions between people and the environment. Existing methods focus on a detailed analysis of image content using colour, shape, texture and motion analysis (direct recognition). In this paper we present a method for recognizing furniture,(More)
We p r e s e n t a method for the detection of sleep stages using the EEG (electroencephalogram). The method consists of four steps: segmentationn parameter extractionn cluster anal-ysiss and classiication. The parameters we compared were the parameters of Hjorth, the harmonic parameters and the relative band energy. For cluster analysis we used a mod-iied(More)
Epilepsy is a neurological disorder caused by intense electrical activity in the brain. The electrical activity, which can be modelled through the superposition of several electrical dipoles, can be determined in a non-invasive way by analysing the electro-encephalogram. This source localization requires the solution of an inverse problem. Locally(More)
Genetic absence epilepsy rats from Strasbourg are a strain of Wistar rats in which all animals exhibit spontaneous occurrences of spike and wave discharges (SWDs) in the EEG. In this paper, we propose a novel method for the detection of SWDs, based on the key observation that SWDs are quasi-periodic signals. The method consists of the following steps: 1)(More)
An occupancy map provides an abstract top view of a scene and can be used for many applications such as domotics, surveillance, elderly-care and video teleconferencing. Such maps can be accurately estimated from multiple camera views. However, using a network of regular high resolution cameras makes the system expensive, and quickly raises privacy concerns(More)
In this demo we present a people tracker in indoor environments. The tracker executes in a network of smart cameras with overlapping views. Special attention is given to real-time processing by distribution of tasks between the cameras and the fusion server. Each camera performs tasks of processing the images and tracking of people in the image plane.(More)
