DiBa: a data-driven Bayesian algorithm for sleep spindle detection.

Journal Article (Journal Article)

Although the spontaneous brain rhythms of sleep have commanded much recent interest, their detection and analysis remains suboptimal. In this paper, we develop a data-driven Bayesian algorithm for sleep spindle detection on the electroencephalography (EEG). The algorithm exploits the Karhunen-Loève transform and Bayesian hypothesis testing to produce the instantaneous probability of a spindle's presence with maximal resolution. In addition to possessing flexibility, transparency, and scalability, this algorithm could perform at levels superior to standard methods for EEG event detection.
