A novel deep learning approach for classification of EEG motor imagery signals

TABAR, Yousef Rezaei
Halıcı, Uğur
Objective. Signal classification is an important issue in brain computer interface (BCI) systems. Deep learning approaches have been used successfully in many recent studies to learn features and classify different types of data. However, the number of studies that employ these approaches on BCI applications is very limited. In this study we aim to use deep learning methods to improve classification performance of EEG motor imagery signals. Approach. In this study we investigate convolutional neural networks (CNN) and stacked autoencoders (SAE) to classify EEG Motor Imagery signals. A new form of input is introduced to combine time, frequency and location information extracted from EEG signal and it is used in CNN having one 1D convolutional and one max-pooling layers. We also proposed a new deep network by combining CNN and SAE. In this network, the features that are extracted in CNN are classified through the deep network SAE. Main results. The classification performance obtained by the proposed method on BCI competition IV dataset 2b in terms of kappa value is 0.547. Our approach yields 9% improvement over the winner algorithm of the competition. Significance. Our results show that deep learning methods provide better classification performance compared to other state of art approaches. These methods can be applied successfully to BCI systems where the amount of data is large due to daily recording.

Atabekoğlu, Cem Somer; Şükür, Yavuz Emre; Kalafat, Erkan; Özmen, Batuhan; Berker, Bülent; Aytac, Rusen; Sönmezer, Murat (2020-07-01)
Objective(s) To assess the association between the ultrasonographic presence of adenomyosis and recurrent miscarriage (RM). Study Design A prospective matched case-control study was conducted between March 2018 and December 2018 at Ankara University Hospital. A total of 132 women were assessed with transvaginal ultrasonography for the presence of adenomyosis markers. The case group consisted of 66 women with RM. The control group consisted of 66 women without RM or any other gynaecologic conditions. The ra...
A model based on multi-features to enhance healthcare and medical document retrieval
Al Zamıl, Mohammed G. H.; Betin Can, Aysu (2011-03-01)
Objective. A major problem in biomedical informatics is the contextual retrieval and ranking of medical and healthcare information. In this article, we present a model for extracting semantic relations among medical and clinical documents. The purpose is to maximise contextual retrieval and ranking performance with minimum input from users.
Use of the dynamic volume spline method to predict facial soft tissue changes associated with orthognathic surgery
Ulusoy, İlkay; Sabuncuoglu, Fidan; GÖRGÜLÜ, SERKAN; ÜÇOK, CEMİLE ÖZLEM (Elsevier BV, 2010-11-01)
Objective. The shape of the face can be estimated before the surgery by using 3-dimensional computer programs that provide tools to guide skill modifications. The aim of this study was to present the dynamic volume spline method to predict facial soft tissue changes after the modification of the skull associated with orthognathic surgery.
Investigation of the tribological behaviour of electrocodeposited Ni-MoS2 composite coatings
Güler, Ebru Saraloglu; Konca, Erkan; Karakaya, İshak (2017-01-01)
Objective. To discuss a patient with a prenatal diagnosis of unilateral isolated femoral focal deficiency. Case. Antenatal diagnosis of unilateral isolated femoral focal deficiency was made at 20 weeks of gestation. The length of left femur was shorter than the right, and fetal femur length was below the fifth percentile. Proximal femoral focal deficiency was diagnosed. After delivery, the diagnosis was confirmed with skeletal radiographs and magnetic resonance imaging. In prenatal ultrasonographic examinat...
