Training Neural Networks to Distinguish Craving Smokers, Non-craving Smokers, and Non-smokers
In the present study, we investigate the differences in brain signals of craving smokers, non-craving smokers, and non-smokers. To this end, we use data from resting-state EEG measurements to train predictive models to distinguish these three groups. We compare the results obtained from three simple models – majority class prediction, random guessing, and naive Bayes – as well as two neural network approaches. The first of these approaches uses a channel-wise model with dense layers, the second one uses cross-channel convolution. We therefore generate a benchmark on the given data set and show that there is a significant difference in the EEG signals of smokers and non-smokers.
