Human-computer interfacing plays an imperative role for the development of assistive technology. In this paper, we present a simple yet novel system that utilizes electro- oculogram signals for interactive innovation. The system intends to provide rehabilitation to the people with severe disability, especially individuals suffering from various neural(More)
The classification of normal and ailing brain activities through visual inspection proves to be very challenging even for any experienced neurologist. The case is even worse for detection of heterogeneous anomalies like epileptic seizures. Authors have presented robust expert system design for classification of epileptic seizures automatically with an(More)
Smart technology provides an important alternative for the assistance of speech disabled individuals like spinal cord injury patients. Out of all biological signals, electro-oculogram promises to be the most appropriate residual ability which could be extracted to generate different characters for daily life communication. The precise change of(More)
Notwithstanding the extensive research effort has gone into understanding face perception by human brain. The concept of face recognition is established yet is selectively impaired relative to recognition of faces of equivalent difficulty. The objective of present study is to develop a theoretical model and a set of stipulations for understanding and(More)
Epilepsy affects about 1-2 % of world's population, out of which 5-30 % of the patients are misdiagnosed during visual inspection of EEG. Automated seizure detection system can help health professionals in correctly diagnosing epilepsy. Design of automated seizure detection algorithms often requires using multiple features which increases the computational(More)
This paper demonstrates a novel design for knee-angle measurement in the sagittal plane. In this study, a wearable knee-brace was fabricated using vacuum moulding technique with an infrared (IR) sensor mounted on the brace. The subtle variations in the knee-angle positions were measured in the form of voltage fluctuations of sensor. These signals were(More)
Manual classification of ictal and non-ictal activities continues to be very perplexing even for any experienced neurophysiologist. Mostly due of the presence of considerable heterogeneity in the seizure patterns. Extensive research efforts have gone in solving this issue. But, the shortcomings and complexity of the deployed methods till date have been(More)
Epilepsy is one of the most common brain disorder which affects more than sixty-five million people worldwide. Its diagnosis is usually performed using electroencephalography technique. Since, electroencephalogram (EEG) signals are highly susceptible to artifacts, epilepsy diagnosis is often challenging task. In addition, locating the origin of seizure(More)
It is unknown whether the ability to visually distinguish between faces and nonfaces is subject to a critical period during development. Would a congenitally blind child who gains sight several years after birth be able to acquire this skill? This question has remained unanswered because of the rarity of cases of late sight onset. We had the opportunity to(More)
