On the Automated Removal of Artifacts Related to Head Movement From the EEG

By Ian Daly, Martin Billinger, Reinhold Scherer and Gernot Müller-putz


by artifacts related to head movement is a major cause of reduced signal quality. This is a problem in both neuroscience and other uses of the EEG. To attempt to reduce the influence, on the EEG, of artifacts related to head movement, an accelerometer is placed on the head and independent component analysis is applied to attempt to separate artifacts which are statistically related to head movements. To evaluate the method, EEG and accelerometer measurements are made from 14 individuals with Cerebral palsy attempting to control a sensorimotor rhythm based brain–computer interface. Results show that the approach significantly reduces the influence of head movement related artifacts in the EEG. Index Terms—Automated artifact removal, brain–computer interface (BCI), electroencephalogram, head movement, independent component analysis (ICA). I
