Abstract: This thesis is concerned with developing signal-processing methods that enable automatic mental-fatigue measuring and monitoring from the electroencephalogram (EEG) recordings: 1) to address the challenge of automatic removal of the pervasive EEG artifacts, an automatic EEG artifact-removal method is proposed, in which a weighted support vector machine (SVM) together with an error-correction algorithm is used for automatic identification and subsequent removal of artifactual components; 2) to identify the critical EEG features pertinent to mental fatigue, new feature-selection methods are also proposed by exploiting a novel feature-ranking criterion based on the sensitivity analysis of posterior probabilities; 3) to continuously monitor mental fatigue at different levels, a comprehensive pattern recognition system is established. The experimental results of the proposed methods, tested on EEG data recorded from 22 subjects (each underwent a 25-hour sleep deprivation), demonstrated the feasibility of an automatic, objective and non-intrusive EEG method for assessing and monitoring of mental fatigue.
