Predicting Human Intention-Behavior Through EEG Signal Analysis Using Multi-Scale CNN

7 days ago   |   By IEEE/ACM

At present, the application of Electroencephalogram signal classification to human intention-behavior prediction has become a hot topic in the brain computer interface research field. In recent studies, the introduction of convolutional neural networks has contributed to substantial improvements in the EEG signal classification performance. However, there is still a key challenge with the existing CNN-based EEG signal classification methods, the accuracy of them is not very satisfying. This is because most of the existing methods only utilize the feature maps in the last layer of CNN for...

A Multi-Scale Activity Transition Network for Data Translation in EEG Signals Decoding

7 days ago   |   By IEEE/ACM

Electroencephalogram is a non-invasive collection method for brain signals. It has broad prospects in brain-computer interface applications. Recent advances have shown the effectiveness of the widely used convolutional neural network in EEG decoding. However, some studies reveal that a slight disturbance to the inputs, e.g., data translation, can change CNN's outputs. Such instability is dangerous for EEG-based BCI applications because signals in practice are different from training data. In this study, we propose a multi-scale activity transition network to alleviate the influence of the...
