Phantom heads have been constructed in the past for such applications as testing the effects of cellular communication devices, but these models are limited in their utility. The current study is not only aimed at producing a head model fit for the testing of neural control devices, but also at providing a template for future work. By providing the fundamental knowledge of and putting together the framework necessary to designing a phantom, this study generalizes the process such that this method of modeling may be useful for other applications.

  • Lossless compression of electroencephalographic (EEG) data

    The lossless compression of electroencephalographic (EEG) data is of great interest to the biomedical research community. In this paper, a two-stage technique of lossless compression involving decorrelating the sample points of the EEG signal and then entropy coding the resulting signal is examined. Two alternatives are presented for performing the first task. Specifically, the first stage consists either of a fixed coefficient filter or a recursive least squares lattice filter. The second stage employs arithmetic coding to perform the task of entropy coding the data. In the decompression stage, exact inverse filters are applied to achieve lossless compression. Simulations demonstrate the feasibility of this method for lossless EEG data compression.

  • Method of Removing Noise from EEG Signals Based on HHT Method

    Many noises are interfused into EEG signals when they are measuring. In order to remove the noises effectively, a novel method based on Hilbert Huang Transform, is shown in the thesis. The theories of empirical mode decomposition and instantaneous frequency solution which are two parts of Hilbert-Huang Transformation are discussed in the thesis. Empirical mode decomposion is used to EEG which can be decomposed into a limited number of intrinsic mode functions. Different threshold are used to treat intrinsic mode functions to achieve de-noising. Results: Hilbert-Huang Transformation is demonstrated to be effective in removing the general EEG noise. Compared with the traditional wavelet transform, Hilbert-Huang Transform for EEG de-noising has some advantages. Conclusion: Using HHT method for EEG signals denoising effective and doable.

  • Diffuse reflection and energy distribution of 633, 780, 850, and 940nm low power laser in brain and laser acupuncture for drug detoxification of 115 addicted patients

    When using low power laser in therapy and diagnostics, the knowledge about the relationship between laser wavelengths and the percentage of reflected energy in the interface air-tissue and the distribution of energy in tissue helps us to choose appropriate wavelengths. In this paper, we present some results obtained from the simulation of low power 633, 780, 850, and 940 nm laser in brain by Monte Carlo method, with the model of brain consisted of 3 mm scalp, 5 mm skull, 3 mm cerebral cortex & grey matter, and white matter. Based on these results, we fabricated devices called ldquolaser semiconductor optoacupuncture devicerdquo using 780 and 940 nm semiconductor lasers to treat some diseases such as cerebral palsy at children, and drug detoxification. In this paper we present the results of dug detoxification for 115 addicted patients using ldquolaser semiconductor optoacupuncture device".

  • An ICA Approach for Extracting Task-related Components from EEG signals

    Independent component analysis (ICA) is suggested to be useful in the analysis of signals (electroencephalography (EEG) and event-related potential (ERP)) recorded from the scalp electrodes to examine brain activity. But ICA analysis of ERP has the problem that it lacks validity across subjects. Therefore, we examined a new approach to give validity across subjects to ICA results obtained from single subjects. To do this, we combined two criteria of how much a single subject's signals contain task-related components and the similarity of the spatial patterns of those task-related components across subjects. We applied our approach to EEG data recorded in an experiment. As a result, analysis with a combination of ICA and our approach extracted significantly more task-related components from the observed signals than analysis without the combination did, although both analyses suggested that the occipital area activity was most relevant to performing the task across subjects. These results suggest that our approach is useful for extracting task-related components from the observed EEG signals and for giving validity across subjects in ICA analysis of EEG/ERP

  • Three-dimensional filtering approach to brain potential mapping

    The spatial distribution of electroencephalogram (EEG) features on the scalp surface, both in time or frequency, is of great importance in clinical applications and medical research. Traditionally, mathematical methods based on interpolation algorithms have been widely applied to obtain the EEG mappings. This paper presents an innovative approach to reconstructing the brain potential mappings from multichannel EEGs. The three-dimensional (3-D) filtering approach, differing from the numerical interpolating methods, considers the spatial distribution of brain potentials as a 3-D signal, which is processed and interpolated according to its spatial frequency characteristics. The performance of the 3-D filtering method evaluated on simulated brain potentials is shown to be comparable to the four-nearest- neighbors method. Moreover, the 3-D filtering method is superior to the spherical splines method in efficiency. Two main advantages of this method are: the prospect of developing realtime, animated EEG mappings utilizing powerful digital signal processors and its capability of processing and interpolating the brain potentials on the realistic irregular scalp surface.

  • Time dependent entropy analysis of multiunit activity in the cortex following the hypoxic-ischemic brain injury

    Previous study has shown that the scalp electrical activity (e.g. EEG) could provide information on hypoxic-ischemic (HI) brain injury. The time dependent entropy (TDE) of EEG was applied as a means to segment the injury and recovery phases. A reduction in entropy during the injury was explained as the result of the spiking or bursting activity during the recovery of HI injury. The aim of this study is to investigate the spiking activity in the cortex during (HI) brain injury. The multiunit activity recorded from the cortex (CTX MUA) is analyzed with TDE methods. The spike sensitive TDE tracks the electric activity at the cellular level. The CTX MUA has high TDE value after the HI injury, which gradually returns to the baseline level as the brain recovers. This is the first report of cellular electrical response to global ischemic injury.
