In this communication we present the first results of a project whose goal is to remove artifacts from electroencephalographic epileptic signals. More precisely the present objective is to remove ocular (blinking) artifacts in simulated and real EEG signal using Independent Component Analysis and wavelet denoising algorithms. Epilepsy is one of the most(More)
This paper proposes an automatic method for artefact removal and noise elimination from scalp electroencephalogram recordings (EEG). The method is based on blind source separation (BSS) and supervised classification and proposes a combination of classical and news features and classes to improve artefact elimination (ocular, high frequency muscle and ECG(More)
The general framework of this research is the pre-processing of the electroencephalographic (EEG) signals. The goal of this paper is to compare several combinations of wavelet denoising (WD) and independent component analysis (ICA) algorithms for noise and artefacts removal. These methods are tested on simulated EEG, using different evaluation criteria.(More)
Genomic signal processing (GSP) refers to the use of digital signal processing (DSP) tools for analyzing genomic data such as DNA sequences. A possible application of GSP that has not been fully explored is the computation of the distance between a pair of sequences. In this work we present GAFD, a novel GSP alignment-free distance computation method. We(More)
Ictal and interictal epileptiform discharges affect brain functional dynamics, but the issue of how they occur is still under debate. The present study evaluated the brain electrical activity that underlies epileptic seizures by focusing analysis on four electroencephalographic time stages around seizure onset. The dynamics of the functional organization of(More)
The global framework of this paper is the synchronization analysis in EEG recordings. Two main objectives are pursued: the evaluation of the synchronization estimation for lateralization purposes in epileptic EEGs and the evaluation of the effect of the preprocessing (artifact and noise cancelling by blind source separation, wavelet denoising and(More)
Children with mathematical difficulties usually have an impaired ability to process symbolic representations. Functional MRI methods have suggested that early frontoparietal connectivity can predict mathematic achievements; however, the study of brain connectivity during numerical processing remains unexplored. With the aim of evaluating this in children(More)
Early auditory deprivation has serious neurodevelopmental and cognitive repercussions largely derived from impoverished and delayed language acquisition. These conditions may be associated with early changes in brain connectivity. Vibrotactile stimulation is a sensory substitution method that allows perception and discrimination of sound, and even speech.(More)
