Abstract

The results of differentiating schizophrenia (SZ) from bipolar mood disorder (BMD) patients by classifying their electroen- cephalogram (EEG) features remain unconvincing. To overcome this deficiency, an efficient feature selection algorithm, called Davies–Bouldin fast feature reduction (DB-FFR), is proposed here to select the most discriminative features and therefore enhancing the classification rate. Here, 27 patients with BMD and 26 patients with SZ were voluntary-enrolled and their EEG signals were recorded from 22 channels, in both eyes-closed/eyes-open conditions. Then, autoregressive model parameters, fractal dimensions (Katz, Higuchi and Lyapunov exponent) and kurtosis features were extracted from their EEGs. The proposed DB-FFR along with Plus-L Minus-R, Tabu search and fast correlation-based filter was applied to the extracted features, and then the selected features by each method were separately applied to a modified version of nearest neighbor classifier. Experimental results provided 87.51% classification accuracy using DB-FFR, which was statistically (P\ 0.05) superior to that of other counterparts. The robustness of DB-FFR was investigated in the presence of additive white noise with different signal-to-noise ratio. Empirical results imply our method could select better discriminative subset of features compared to its rivals.
