Abstract : An automatic electroenecephalogram(EEG) analyzer was constructed, computer programs were written to process the data produced by the analyzer, and tests were conducted to verify that the analyzer performed as designed. Design concepts for this analyzer are discussed. The major advantage of this automatic EEG analyzer over other data reduction schemes is that it performs almost a one thousand to one compression of the data, storing only 96 bits of data per minute at the slowest output rate. This will permit EEG researchers to review continuous EEG records which were previously scored manually. (Modified author abstract)
