This paper presents a time-frequency approach for electroencephalographic (EEG) seizure detection. The proposed method uses the high-resolution reduced interference B time-frequency distribution. An in-depth analysis of the seizure detection techniques of Gotman (frequency domain) and Liu (time domain) has been performed in order to compare with the detection criteria used in the time-frequency domain. Both synthetic and real neo-natal EEG signals have been used for testing.
