The Performance of EEG-P300 Classification Using Backpropagation Neural Networks


Electroencephalogram (EEG) recordings signal provide an important function of brain-computer communication, but the accuracy of their classification is very limited in unforeseeable signal variations relating to artifacts. In this paper, we propose a classification method entailing time-series EEG-P300 signals using backpropagation neural networks to predict the qualitative properties of a subject’s mental tasks by extracting useful information from the highly multivariate non-invasive recordings of brain activity. To test the improvement in the EEG-P300 classification performance (i.e., classification accuracy and transfer rate) with the proposed method, comparative experiments were conducted using Bayesian Linear Discriminant Analysis (BLDA). Finally, the result of the experiment showed that the average of the classification accuracy was 97% and the maximum improvement of the average transfer rate is 42.4%, indicating the considerable potential of the using of EEG-P300 for the continuous classification of mental tasks.
