Review of Techniques for Predicting Epileptic Seizure using EEG Signals

Main Article Content

Raj A. Sadaye, Sagar J. Parekh


Epilepsy is a disorder that is characterized by seizures. Seizures are caused due to unusual electrical activity in the brain. Electroencephalogram (EEG) is used to read brain signal in form of 5 sub-bands viz. Alpha, Beta, Gamma, Theta and Delta. The features within each of theses sub-bands can be analysed and processed upon to predict the onset of a seizure. By accurate prediction of seizures, we can take preventive measures such as providing medication to reduce the severity of suffering of the patient. This pape r reviews the different techniques by which we can predict the onset of epileptic seizure using EEG signals. Each method utilizes one or more sub-bands of the EEG signal and classifies the patient records based on the features extracted through that set of sub-bands. Every method uses a different way to extract the sub bands. Also different classification algorithms are used in every method. We compare t e performance of each technique and analyse their efficacy.
