Classification of Motor Imagery and Synchronization of Post-Stroke Patient EEG Signal

Arifah Ummul Fadiyah, Esmeralda C. Djamal


Stroke attacks often cause disability, so the need for rehabilitation to restore patient's motor skills. Electroencephalogram (EEG) is an instrument that can capture electrical activity in the brain. Some post-stroke patients have brain electrical dysfunction so that EEG signal can achieve such as amplitude decrease, and wave differences from symmetric channels. However, EEG signal analysis is not easy because it has high complexity and small amplitude. However, information from EEG signals is beneficial, including for stroke identification. This study proposes the identification of EEG signals from post-stroke patients using wavelet extraction and Backpropagation Levernberg-Marquardt. EEG signals are recorded, extracted imagery motor variables, and synchronization of symmetric channels. The results of the study provide that the accuracy for identifying post-stroke EEG signals is 100% for training data and 79.69 % for new data. Research also shows that the use of learning rates affects accuracy. The smaller the learning rate provided accuracy is better. However, it had consequences for computing time so that the optimal learning rate is 0.0001.
