Abstract

The electroencephalogram (EEG) signals record electrical activities generated by the brain cells and are used as a state-ofthe-art diagnosis tool for various neural disorders. However, the unwanted artifacts often contaminate the recorded EEG signals and disturb the interpretation of the neuronal activity. This paper aims to propose an efficient automatic method to eliminate the ocular artifacts (OAs) from the multi-channel EEG signals with novel frequency-spatial filtering. The method combines dictionarybased spatial filtering and frequency based signal decomposition method, namely empirical wavelet transform (EWT). The artifact dictionary needed for spatial filtering is isolated from the raw data by (1) selecting the contaminated channels and (2) frequencydomain filtering. More precisely, the δ-rhythms of identified highly contaminated channels are selected and placed into an artifact dictionary. Afterward, the δ-rhythms of multi-channel EEG signals are spatially filtered using the built dictionary to seclude the OAs within a limited number of components. Further, the artifact components are eliminated and clean δ-rhythms are recovered using inverse spatial filtering technique. Finally, the clean δ-rhythms are combined with other EEG rhythms to reconstruct the OAfree signals. The proposed method is applied to OA contaminated synthetic and real multi-channel EEG signals with a convincing performance as compared to state of the art approaches. The proposed method removes the OAs without affecting the background EEG information. The proposed method can ease sensor signal interpretation and further processing, e.g. for BCI applications.
