Nowadays, many deep models have been presented to recognize emotions using electroencephalogram (EEG) signals. These deep models are computationally intensive, it takes a longer time to train the model. Also, it is difficult to achieve high classification performance using for emotion classification using machine learning techniques. To overcome these limitations, we present a hand-crafted conventional EEG emotion classification network. In this work, we have used novel prime pattern and tunable q-factor wavelet transform (TQWT) techniques to develop an automated model to classify human emotions. Our proposed cognitive model comprises feature extraction, feature selection, and classification steps. We have used TQWT on the EEG signals to obtain the sub-bands. The prime pattern and statistical feature generator are employed on the generated sub-bands and original signal to generate 798 features. 399 (half of them) out of 798 features are selected using minimum redundancy maximum relevance (mRMR) selector, and misclassification rates of each signal are evaluated using support vector machine (SVM) classifier. The proposed network generated 87 feature vectors hence, this model is named PrimePatNet87. In the last step of the feature generation, the best 20 feature vectors which are selected based on the calculated misclassification rates, are concatenated. The generated feature vector is subjected to the feature selection and the most significant 1000 features are selected using the mRMR selector. These selected features are then classified using an SVM classifier. In the last phase, iterative majority voting has been used to generate a general result. We have used three publicly available datasets, namely DEAP, DREAMER, and GAMEEMO, to develop our proposed model. Our presented PrimePatNet87 model reached over 99% classification accuracy on whole datasets with leave one subject out (LOSO) validation. Our results demonstrate that the developed prime pattern network is accurate and ready for real-world applications.

Discrete wavelet transform based shift invariant analysis scheme for transient sound signals
Wasim, Ahmad; Hacıhabiboğlu, Hüseyin; Kondoz, Ahmet (2010-09-06)
Discrete wavelet transform (DWT) has gained widespread recognition and popularity in signal processing due to its ability to underline and represent time-varying spectral properties of many transient and other nonstationary signals. However, DWT is a shift-variant transform. This shift-variance is a major problem with the use of DWT for transient signal analysis and pattern recognition applications. A number of modified forms of DWT have been investigated in recent years that provide approximate shift-invar...
A Sparse Temporal Mesh Model for Brain Decoding
Afrasiyabi, Arman; Onal, Itir; Yarman Vural, Fatoş Tunay (2016-08-23)
One of the major drawbacks of brain decoding from the functional magnetic resonance images (fMRI) is the very high dimension of feature space which consists of thousands of voxels in sequence of brain volumes, recorded during a cognitive stimulus. In this study, we propose a new architecture, called Sparse Temporal Mesh Model (STMM), which reduces the dimension of the feature space by combining the voxel selection methods with the mesh learning method. We, first, select the "most discriminative" voxels usin...
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...
EEG Classification based on Image Configuration in Social Anxiety Disorder
Mokatren, Lubna Shibly; Ansari, Rashid; Cetin, Ahmet Enis; Leow, Alex D.; Ajilore, Olusola; Klumpp, Heide; Yarman Vural, Fatoş Tunay (2019-01-01)
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 ...
Gender clasification based on single channel EEG signal
ORAL, EMİN ARGUN; ÖZBEK, İBRAHİM YÜCEL; Çodur, Muhammet Mustafa (2017-11-02)
This paper presents an approach for gender recognition from single channel EEG signal. For this purpose, approximately 24 hour-long EEG data, obtained during daily routine activities including sleep, was used. First, cepstrum coefficients of EEG signals were obtained in the frequency domain to construct the features SET. Second, a machine learning step was performed using these features with Support Vector Machines (SVM). Finally, gender identification was performed on the test data for which features were ...
