In this paper, we consider the problem of quantifying synchrony between multiple simultaneously recorded electroencephalographic signals. These signals exhibit nonlinear dependencies and non-Gaussian statistics. A copula based approach is presented to model the joint statistics. We then consider the application of copula derived synchrony measures for early diagnosis of Alzheimer's disease. Results on real data are presented.

Mixture Kernel Density Estimation and Remedied Correlation Matrix on the EEG-Based Copula Model for the Assessment of Visual Discomfort
TLDR
The mixture kernel density estimation (MKDE) and remedied correlation matrix (RCM) on the EEG-based copula model are proposed to mitigate the mentioned shortcomings and present better discrimination to visual discomfort compared with the features extracted by the state-of-the-art method.
Causality Analysis of fMRI Data Based on the Directed Information Theory Framework
TLDR
The results show that when bidirectional information flow is present, DI is more effective than GC to quantify the overall causal relationship, and DI-based causality analysis is moreeffective in capturing both linear and nonlinear causal relationships.
The Relationship of Discrete DCM and Directed Information in fMRI-Based Causality Analysis
TLDR
The conditional equivalence between DDCM and DI in characterizing the causal relationship and identifying the causal side of two brain regions based on the fMRI data is proved and the DI-based causal relationship between the neurostates of twobrain regions is equivalent to that between the observed BOLD signals.
On Entropy of Probability Integral Transformed Time Series
TLDR
The goal of this paper is to investigate the changes of entropy estimates when the amplitude distribution of the time series is equalized using the probability integral transformation, and derived an expression for the reference value of entropy in the probabilities integral transformed signals.
Optimization of EEG frequency bands for improved diagnosis of Alzheimer disease
TLDR
The frequency band 4–7Hz is the optimal frequency range for detecting AD, which is similar to the classical theta band, and the optimized frequency bands may improve existing EEG based diagnostic tools for AD.
Detection of Dependent Heavy-Tailed Signals
TLDR
This paper considers a two-sided test in the Neyman-Pearson framework and presents an asymptotic analysis of the generalized likelihood test (GLRT).
Selected Methods for non-Gaussian Data Analysis
TLDR
This manuscript focuses on the analysis of non-Gaussian distributed data, and the use of higher order multivariate cumulants in computer science is inspired by financial data analysis, especially by the safe investment portfolio evaluation.
