Long-term electroencephalogram (EEG) monitoring is an important tool used for the diagnosis of epilepsy. Truly Wearable EEG can be considered as the future of ambulatory EEG units, which are the current standard for long-term EEG monitoring. Replacing these short lifetime, bulky units with long-lasting miniature and wearable devices which can be easily worn by patients will result in more EEG data being acquired for longer monitoring periods. This paper presents an analog-based data reduction…
