Abstract:
New applications of Electroencephalographic recording (EEG) require light and easy-to-handle equipment involving powerful algorithms of artifact removal. In our work, we exploit informed source separation methods for artifact removal in EEG recordings with a low number of sensors, especially in the extreme case of single-channel recording, by exploiting prior knowledge from auxiliary lightweight sensors capturing artifactual signals. To achieve this, we propose a method using Non-negative Tensor Factorization (NTF) in a Gaussian source separation framework that proves competitive against the classic Independent Component Analysis (ICA) technique. Additionally the both NTF and ICA methods are used in an original scheme that jointly processes the EEG and auxiliary signals. The adopted NTF strategy is shown to improve the source estimates accuracy in comparison with the usual multi-channel ICA approach.
