General anesthesia plays a crucial role in many surgical procedures, and it therefore has an enormous impact on human health. There are no precise measures for maintaining the correct dose of anesthetic, and there is currently no fully reliable instrument to monitor depth of anesthesia. In this paper, a novel approach has been proposed for detecting the changes in synchronism of brain signals, taken from EEG machine. During the effect of anesthesia, there are certain changes in the EEG signals…

A Novel Approach For Detection of Neurological Disorders through Electrical Potential Developed in Brain

This paper proposes a novel and a very simple and user friendly method to diagnose the neurological disorders by using the EEG signals through graphs and recurrence plots using MATLAB.

Frontal lobe and long-term memory retrieval analysis during pre-learning stress using EEG signals

The experimental results indicate that there is a relationship between theta rhythm in the frontal lobe and long-term memory retrieval during Pre-learning stress.

Recurrence Based Method to Determine the Neurological Disorders Through Electrical Signals of Brain

An algorithm is designed which uses EEG signals as the input and uses the synchronizing patterns of EEG signals to determine various neurological disorders through graphs and recurrence plots using MATLAB.



Reversible transitions between synchronization states of the cardiorespiratory system.

It appears that the synchronization state may be used to characterize the depth of anesthesia, as it passes reversibly through a sequence of different phase-synchronized states as the anesthesia level changes, indicating that it can undergo phase transitionlike phenomena.

Modified Variational Mode Decomposition for Power Line Interference Removal in ECG Signals

A modified variational mode decomposition based approach is proposed for PLI removal from the ECG signals where the central frequency of an intrinsic mode function is fixed corresponding to the normalized power line disturbance frequency.

A New Framework Based on Recurrence Quantification Analysis for Epileptic Seizure Detection

Combination of RQA-based measures of the original signal and its subbands results in an overall accuracy of 98.67% that indicates high accuracy of the proposed method.

Seizure prediction and the preseizure period

The notion of a preseizure state is catalyzing new clinical and basic science research, which has the potential to dramatically increase the understanding of epilepsy, and to generate exciting new therapies for patients.


Two noninvasive neurostimulation techniques are emerging as potentially valuable tools for seizure control: transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS) and, to a lesser extent, transcranIAL direct current stimulation (tDCS) (reviewed in Nitsche and Paulus, 2009).
