Fast Detection of Brain Disorders using EEG Signal

M. S. Jamuar, A. Shah, M. Kucic


EEG is brain signal processing technique that allows gaining the understanding of the complex inner mechanisms of the brain and abnormal brain waves have shown to be associated with particular brain disorders. The analysis of brain waves plays an important role in diagnosis of different brain disorders. The electroencephalogram (EEG) is the recording of electrical activity of the brain; it is a very effective tool for understanding the complex dynamical behavior of the brain. EEG signal towards the detection of abnormalities follows mainly four stages: pre-processing, feature extraction, feature selection, classification and ischemic episode recognition. The performance of detection shows better accuracy than the existing.
