Abstract : This report documents the work accomplished in applying the principles of pattern recognition technology to the analysis of EEG. Techniques were defined and developed for detection of rapid eye movements and identification of REM epochs. The sleep scoring package was redesigned and extended to incorporate two channels of eye movement information in addition to EEG and to introduce decision logic patterned after that used by the human scorer to resolve indeterminate cases.
