Epileptic Seizure Detection Using Cross-Bispectrum of Electroencephalogram Signal

Epilepsy is a common neurological disorder associated with recurrent and sudden excessive electrical discharges in a group of brain neurons that can disrupt the patient’s behavior and function temporarily [1]. Common treatments for epilepsy (medication and surgery), that often come with several side effects, are not able to control seizures in almost 25% of the patients. These patients must live with seizures that can happen anytime and anywhere [2]. Since epileptic seizures are related to the electrical activity of the brain, the electroencephalogram (EEG) signals are widely used in the epilepsy diagnosis and assessment.
