Open Access research with a real impact on health...

The Strathprints institutional repository is a digital archive of University of Strathclyde's Open Access research outputs. Strathprints provides access to thousands of Open Access research papers by Strathclyde researchers, including by researchers from the Physical Activity for Health Group based within the School of Psychological Sciences & Health. Research here seeks to better understand how and why physical activity improves health, gain a better understanding of the amount, intensity, and type of physical activity needed for health benefits, and evaluate the effect of interventions to promote physical activity.

Abstract

28 channel EEG data were recorded while a subject performed wrist movements in four directions. Four feature types were extracted for each channel following optimized filtering of the signals. The potential performance of each feature and channel for use in the classification of the EEG signals was analyzed by estimating the relative class overlap using a first order histogram approach. The best feature/channel configurations contained channels both that were close and far from motor areas. While the scope and depth of the study was very limited, the results do suggest more attention should be paid to non-motor areas when investigating movement related EEG.
