Applications of fuzzy similarity index method in processing of hypnosis


The brain is a highly complex system. Under-standing the behavior and dynamics of billions of interconnected neurons from the brain signal requires knowledge of several signal- process-ing techniques, from the linear and non-linear domains. The analysis of EEG signals plays an important role in a wide range of applications, such as psychotropic drug research, sleep studies, seizure detection and hypnosis proc-essing. In this paper we accomplish to analyze and explore the nature of hypnosis in Right, Left, Back and Frontal hemisphere in 3 groups of hypnotizable subjects by means of Fuzzy Simi-larity Index method.
