[edit] Current Discussion

(19 February 2014) starting to think about possibility for experiments (loosely) related to Visual Evoked Potential research again - for instance:

http://www.biosemi.com/publications/pdf/Bierman.pdf -- Wave function collapse

File:Schak99InstantaneousCoherenceStroopTask.pdf -- "Instantaneous EEG Coherence Analysis During the Stroop Task" -- Schack et al 1999

File:CoherentEEGAmbiguousFigureBinding.pdf -- "Coherent EEG Indicators of Cognitive Binding During Ambiguous Figure Tasks" -- Klemm, Li, and Hernandez 2000

Note these two papers flog coherence measures - not trying to focus so much on that analysis right now, more interested in general understanding of what these experiments are about with possible goal of designing simpler experiments & analysis of similar perceptual/cognitive phenomena.

Here is an article that looks more directly at visual evoked potential measures:

File:ERP Stereoscopic.pdf -- "Evoked Responses to Distinct and Nebulous Stereoscopic Stimuli" -- Dunlop et al 1983


(11 September 2013) more on analysis methods:

File:ICAFrequencyDomainEEG.pdf


(21 August 2013) - readings relating statistical (etc math / signal processing / pattern recognition / machine learning) methods for EEG data interpretation. A lot of stuff, a bit of nonsense ... and ... statistics!

Would be good to identify any papers suitable for more in-depth study. Currently have a wide field to graze for selections:

File:DWTandFFTforEEG.pdf "EEG Classifier using Fourier Transform and Wavelet Transform" -- Maan Shaker, 2007

File:Schak99InstantaneousCoherenceStroopTask.pdf -- "Instantaneous EEG Coherence Analysis During the Stroop Task" -- Schack et al 1999

File:KulaichevCoherence.pdf -- "The Informativeness of Coherence Analysis in EEG Studies" -- A. P. Kulaichev 2009 note: interesting critical perspective re limitations, discussion of alternative analytics

File:ContinuousAndDiscreteWaveletTransforms.pdf -- review of (pre-1990) wavelet literature -- Christopher Heil and David Walnut, 1989

File:EEGGammaMeditation.pdf -- "Brain sources of EEG gamma frequency during volitionally meditation-induced, altered states of consciousness, and experience of the self" -- Dietrich Lehman et al 2001

http://neuro.hut.fi/~pavan/home/Hyvarinen2010_FourierICA_Neuroimage.pdf - "Independent component analysis of short-time Fourier transforms for spontaneous EEG/MEG analysis" -- Aapo Hyvarinen, Pavan Ramkumar, Lauri Parkkonen, Riitta Hari - paper published in Neuroimage vol 49 (2010)

Consumer grade EEG used to see "P300" reponse and for thoes with a short attention span tldr
(discussed at meetup Wednesday 31 July 2013)
"Coherent EEG Indicators of Cognitive Binding During Ambiguous Figure Tasks" Klemm, Li, and Hernandez 2000
File:CoherentEEGAmbiguousFigureBinding.pdf
"We tested the hypothesis that perception of an alternative image in ambiguous figures would be manifest as high-frequency (gamma) components that become synchronized over multiple scalp sites as a "cognitive binding" process occurs."

File:HobsomREMDreamProtoconsciousness.pdf

"Hobson and McCarley originally proposed in the 1970s that the differences in the waking-NREM-REM sleep cycle was the result of interactions between aminergic REM-off cells and cholinergic REM-on cells.[4] This was perceived as the activation-synthesis model, stating that brain activation during REM sleep results in synthesis of dream creation.[1][1] Hobson's five cardinal characteristics include: intense emotions, illogical content, apparent sensory impressions, uncritical acceptance of dream events, and difficulty in being remembered."

[edit] random tangents

(following previous discussion) - we might select a few to study in more depth (... or not! Plenty more to explore - suggestions (random or otherwise) are welcome.

"We will call a system that transmits without errors at the rate C an ideal system.
 Such a system cannot be achieved with any finite encoding process
 but can be approximated as closely as desired."
