Brain waves provide a measure of mental health. Recently, the techniques involved in the measurement of brain waves are a lucrative research area. Diseases related to the brain are variegated and are difficult to diagnose and study. This increases the importance of accurate and reliable measurement of brain waves. Conventionally prefrontal cortex information is used to determine the general brain electrical activity (e.g., to assess trauma, drug poisoning, or magnitude of brain damage in comatose patients). This data is mandated to be confidential and is susceptible to cyber attacks. This work presents a secure transmission methodology which embeds the EEG signal in a high frequency plane using Discrete Rajan Transform (DRT) and Discrete Wavelet Transform (DWT) .
