Abstract

Investigation of epileptic electroencephalogram (EEG) signal is one of the major areas of study in the field of signal processing. The ability to detect the seizure signal and its origin within the brain is of prime importance. This paper proposes a sequential blind signal separation (BSS) based system to extract the seizure signal from scalp EEG and to pinpoint the main location of seizure signal within the brain. BSS algorithm is used to demix the EEG signal into signals with independent features. Scalp time-mapping process is applied to determine the main location of the extracted seizure signal within the brain. The algorithm has been tested on epileptic EEG signals recorded from patient..
