Towards Personalized Neural Networks for Epileptic Seizure Prediction

  title={Towards Personalized Neural Networks for Epileptic Seizure Prediction},
  author={A. Dourado and Ricardo Martins and Jo{\~a}o Valente Duarte and Bruno Direito},
Seizure prediction for untreatable epileptic patients, one of the major challenges of present neuroinformatics researchers, will allow a substantial improvement in their safety and quality of life. Neural networks, because of their plasticity and degrees of freedom, seem to be a good approach to consider the enormous variability of physiological systems. Several architectures and training algorithms are comparatively proposed in this work showing that it is possible to find an adequate network…

Multiobjective support vector machines optimization for epileptic seizure prediction
In this work, SVMs were optimized by a multiobjective genetic algorithm, to improve simultaneously sensitivity, specificity and complexity (computed as the number of inputs).
Design and Development of Prediction Model to Detect Seizure Activity Utilizing Higher Order Statistical Features of EEG signals.
This study aims at developing an automated predictive model to diagnose the state of an epileptic patient using EEG signals, capable of classifying the seizure activity into ictal, interictal and normal state with an accuracy as high as 99.3%, maximum sensitivity of 100% and specificity as low as 98.3%.
A computational environment for long-term multi-feature and multi-algorithm seizure prediction
A computational environment, based on Matlab ®, is presented, aiming to be an innovative tool for seizure prediction, results from the need of a powerful and flexible tool for long-term EEG/ECG analysis by multiple features and algorithms.

Wepilet, optimal orthogonal wavelets for epileptic seizure prediction with one single surface channel
Results in a group of four patients, indicate the efficiency of optimized mother wavelet compared to the well-known Daubechies wavelet in EEG processing.
Output regularization of SVM seizure predictors: Kalman Filter versus the “Firing Power” method
Two methods for output regularization of support vector machines (SVMs) classifiers were applied for seizure prediction in 10 patients with long-term annotated data and the results point that the FP method raise less false alarms than the KF approach.
