Modelling the dynamics of EEG signals allows a better understanding of the underlying process and the model itself can be used either for predictive purposes or for feature extraction to identify the modeled process.  As part of our contribution to the BIOPATTERN Network of Excellence, autoregressive moving average (ARMA) modeling has been applied to the diagnosis of epileptic children as compared to a sex and age matched control group during a rest task.  ARMA extracted spectral features have been found to be a suitable biomarker to classify children with mild epilepsy even in scenarios where the visual inspection of their EEG data has labeled them as being normal.  Epileptic children were found to have significantly higher spectral power in all frequency bands up to 45Hz and recordings from electrodes placed across the whole brain area gave similar results.  When compared to nonparametric spectral feature extraction techniques like Fourier transform and Wavelets, the ARMA modeling technique was found to be superior with classification scores reaching as high as 100% classification over most channels.
