Introduction: Electroencephalography (EEG) is the most commonly used method to study the function of the brain. This study represents a computerized model for distinguishing between epileptic and healthy subjects using EEG signals with relatively high accuracy. Materials and Methods: The EEG database used in this study was obtained from the data available in Andrzejak. This dataset consists of 5 EEG sets (designated as A to E), each containing 100 EEG sections. Collections A and B comprised EEG signals that have been taken from 5 healthy volunteers. The C and D sets referred to EEGs from patients with focal epilepsy (without ictal recordings) and the E set was derived from a patient with ictal recording. Support vector machines were used after applying principal components analysis or linear discriminant analysis over the features of the signals. MATLAB has been used to implement and test the proposed classification algorithm. To evaluate the proposed method, the confusion matrix, overall success rate, ROC, and the AUC of each class were extracted. K-fold cross-validation technique was used to validate the results. Results: The overall success rate achieved in this study was above 82%. Dimension reduction algorithms can improve its accuracy and speed. Conclusion: It is helpful to be able to predict the occurrence of a seizure early and accurately. Using the computerized model represented in this study could accomplish this goal.
