In this paper, we propose a method to classify electroencephalogram (EEG) signal recorded from left- and right-hand movement imaginations. Three subjects (two males and one female) are volunteered to participate in the experiment. We use a technique of complexity measure based on fractal analysis to reveal feature patterns in the EEG signal. Effective algorithm, namely, detrended fluctuation analysis (DFA) has been selected to estimate embedded fractal dimension (FD) values between relaxing and… Expand

Evaluating the effect of the cutoff frequencies during the pre-processing stage of motor imagery EEG signals classification
This work proposes an analysis of the accuracy during the classification when electroencephalographic signals related to motor imagery tasks, are filtered by a band pass filter with different cutoff frequencies and suggests that the fractal dimension provides better results than AR coefficients and Higuchi's method is better option than Katz since provides similar accuracy values but its computational complexity is lower.
