Learning Recurrent Waveforms within EEGs
Austin J. Brockmeier,  Jose C. Principe, University of Liverpool, UK, University of Florida, USA When experts analyze EEGs they look for landmarks in the traces corresponding to established waveform patterns, such as phasic events of particular frequency or morphology. Lengthy records motivate automated analysis... Read more
