The problem of detecting the presence of Social Anxiety Disorder (SAD) using Electroencephalography (EEG) for classification has seen limited study and is addressed with a new approach that seeks to exploit the knowledge of EEG sensor spatial configuration. Two classification models, one which ignores the configuration (model 1) and one that exploits it with different interpolation methods (model 2), are studied. Performance of these two models is examined for analyzing 34 EEG data channels each consisting of five frequency bands and further decomposed with a filter bank. The data are collected from 64 subjects consisting of healthy controls and patients with SAD. Validity of our hypothesis that model 2 will significantly outperform model 1 is borne out in the results, with accuracy 6– 7% higher for model 2 for each machine learning algorithm we investigated. Convolutional Neural Networks (CNN) were found to provide much better performance than SVM and kNNs. Index Terms— EEG, deep learning, classification.


Deep learning for the classification of bipolar disorder using fNIRS measurements
Evgin, Haluk Barkın; Ulusoy, İlkay; Department of Electrical and Electronics Engineering (2021-2-3)
Functional Near-Infrared Spectroscopy (fNIRS) is a neural imaging method that is proved to be prominent in the classification of psychiatric disorders, and assertive accuracy results are being obtained using fNIRS. High temporal resolution, feasibility, and partial endurance to head movements are the traits that are highlighting fNIRS among other imaging methods. fNIRS data is a one dimensional multi-channeled time series. In this thesis, bipolar disorder is classified using some state of the art deep learn...

In this study, stacked autoencoders which are widely utilized in deep learning research are applied to remote sensing domain for hyperspectral classification. High dimensional hyperspectral data is an excellent candidate for deep learning methods. However, there are no works in literature that focuses on such deep learning approaches for hyperspectral imagery. This study aims to fill this gap by utilizing stacked autoencoders. Experiments are conducted on the Pavia University scene. Using stacked autoencode...
Learning transferability of cognitive tasks by graph generation for brain decoding
Coşkun, Bilgin; Yarman Vural, Fatoş Tunay; Department of Computer Engineering (2021-12-10)
Brain decoding involves analyzing the cognitive states of human brain by using some statistical techniques in order to understand the relations among the cognitive states, based on neuroimaging data. A very powerful tool to acquire the brain data is functional magnetic resonance images (fMRI), which generates three-dimensional brain volume at each time instant, while a subject performs a cognitive task involving social activities, emotion processing, game playing, memory etc. However, it is very difficult a...
Cognitive Learner: An Ensemble Learning Architecture for Cognitive State Classification
Moğultay, Hazal (2017-05-18)
In this study, we propose an ensemble learning architecture called "Cognitive Learner", for classification of cognitive states from functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI). Proposed architecture consists of a two-layer hierarchy. In the first layer, called voxel layer, we model the connectivity among the voxel time series to represent the detailed information about the experiment. In the second layer, we cluster the voxel time series by using functional similarity measure, to partition the brain volume...
An Information Theoretic Approach to Classify Cognitive States Using fMRI
Onal, Itir; Ozay, Mete; Firat, Orhan; GİLLAM, İLKE; Yarman Vural, Fatoş Tunay (2013-11-13)
In this study, an information theoretic approach is proposed to model brain connectivity during a cognitive processing task, measured by functional Magnetic Resonance Imaging (fMRI). For this purpose, a local mesh of varying size is formed around each voxel. The arc weights of each mesh are estimated using a linear regression model by minimizing the squared error. Then, the optimal mesh size for each sample, that represents the information distribution in the brain, is estimated by minimizing various inform...
