Automatic Discrimination of Abnormal Subjects Using the Visual Evoked Potential Spectral Components

Received25 Nov 2002

Study of visual evoked potential (VEP) is one of the utilized methods in clinical diagnosis of ophthalmology and neurological disorders. The automatic detection of VEP spectral components is an important tool in the diagnosis of mental activity. This paper presents a novel computational approach using feedforward neural network to identify abnormal subjects from changes in spectral components. The output vector from the feedforward neural network is based on the VEP spectral components. The software was developed to identify mental state from the VEP spectral components using Matlab software package. Using this approach, it is possible to perform real-time abnormality identification accurately on personal computers.
