Epileptic Seizure Prediction and The



Seizures prediction may substantially improve the quality of
life of epileptic patients. Processing EEG signals, by extracting a con-
venient set of features, is the most promising way to classify the brain
state and to predict with some antecedence its evolution to a seizure con-
dition. In this work neural networks are proposed as e ective classi ers
of brain state among 4 classes: interictal, preictal, ictal and postictal.
A two channels set of 26 features is extracted. By correlation analysis
and by extracting the principal components, a reduced features space is
obtained where, by an appropriate neural network, over 90% successful
classi cations are achieved, for dataset with several patients from the
Freiburg database

Considerable efforts have been made in order to predict seizures. Among these methods,
the ones that quantify synchronization between brain areas, are the most important methods.
However, to date, a practically acceptable result has not been reported. In this paper, we ...
