Abstract

Eye movements and eye blinks are present in most of the electroencephalography (EEG) recordings, making it difficult to interpret or analyze the data. In this paper an extension of empirical mode decomposition (EMD) is proposed in order to clean EEG data of eye blinks artifacts. This is achieved by applying two cleaning methods to EEG simulated data. One of these methods is presented only for illustrative purposes, whereas the second one can be applied to real EEG data. The results show that the cleaned data with both these methods presents high correlation (|r|>0.8) with the simulated EEG clean data.
