Extracting Blink Rate Variability from EEG Signals

Temesgen Gebrehiwot, Rafal Paprocki, Marija Gradinscak, Artem Lenskiy
Abstract—Generally, blinks are treated on equal with artifacts and noise while analyzing EEG signals. However, blinks carry important information about mental processes and thus it is important to detect blinks accurately. The aim of the presented study is to propose a blink detection method and discuss its application for extracting blink rate variability, a novel concept that might shed some light on the mental processes. In this study, 14 EEG recordings were selected for assessing the quality of the proposed blink detection algorithm.

Index Terms—Blink rate variability, inter blink interval dynamics, EEG artifacts.
