Abstract

ntal retardation (MR) is one of the most common secondary disabilities in people with Epilepsy. However, to our knowledge there are no reliable seizure detection methods specified for MR-patients. In this paper we performed a pilot study on a group of six patients with mental retardation to assess what EEG features potentially work well on this group. A group of EEG features on the time, frequency and spatio-temporal domain were extracted, the modified wrapper approach was then employed as an improved feature subset selection method. Results show high variance on obtained features subset across this group, meanwhile there exist some common features which characterize the high-frequency components of epileptic EEG signals.
