Paper Abstract

A redundant wavelet filtering method is used in conjunction with spectrogram computations to address a component of the problem of predicting epileptic seizure activity. It is shown that spectrograms of seizure episodes exhibit multiple chirps consistent with the relatively simple almost periodic behavior of the observed time series. Scalograms corresponding to a redundant (non-dyadic) wavelet analysis are used to provide finer information about these chirps, including their evolution in preseizure intervals. Detection of the origin of such periodicities are useful in the prediction problem.
