Abstract

Physiological data is generated by process that are either nonlinear deterministic or nondeterministic. The lempel-ziv complexity and non-extensive entropy measurement has been used to quantify information in physiological data like EEG and EMG. When the functions of brain cells are affected by damage caused by several disease it is observed changes in the features of the EEG providing useful insight into brain functions and playing a useful role as a first line of decision-support tool for early detection and diagnosis in brain diseases. This paper uses a method to identify the q-index in those signals by using the relationships between entropy definitions given by Lempel-ziv and those given by Tsallis methods. After all, this article shows that, the q-index can be used to characterize EEG seizure quantifying changes related to the q-entropic index.
