Comparison of the distributions of classical and adaptively aligned EEG power spectra

Comparison of the distributions of classical and adaptively aligned EEG power spectra

International Journal of Psychophysiology 55(2): 179-189

The distributions of eyes-closed resting electroencephalography (EEG) power spectra and their residuals were described and compared using classically averaged and adaptively aligned averaged spectra. Four minutes of eyes-closed resting EEG was available from 69 participants. Spectra were calculated with 0.5-Hz resolution and were analyzed at this level. It was shown that power in the individual 0.5 Hz frequency bins can be considered normally distributed when as few as three or four 2-second epochs of EEG are used in the average. A similar result holds for the residuals. Power at the peak Alpha frequency has quite different statistical behaviour to power at other frequencies and it is considered that power at peak Alpha represents a relatively individuated process that is best measured through aligned averaging. Previous analyses of contrasts in upper and lower alpha bands may be explained in terms of the variability or distribution of the peak Alpha frequency itself.
