"Epilepsy is a disease caused by an excessive discharge of a group of neurons in the cerebral cortex. Extracting this information using EEG signals is an ongoing challenge in biomedical signal processing. In this paper, a new method is proposed for onset seizure detection in epileptic EEG signals based on parameters from the t-location-scale distribution coupled with the variance and the Pearson correlation coefﬁcient. The 1-nearest neighbor classiﬁer achieved a 91% sensitivity (True positive rate) and 95% speciﬁcity (True Negative Rate) with a delay of 4.5 seconds (on average) in the 45 signals analyzed, which suggests that the proposed methodology is potentially useful for seizure onset detection in epileptic EEG signals."
