Dimension calculations in a minimal embedding space: Low-dimensional attractors for human electroencephalograms
Reconstructing an attractor in the Broomhead-King basis makes dimension calculations less sensitive to noise and require smaller embedding spaces. Use of this procedure to study human EEG's confirm earlier results that EEG's may indeed be characterizable by small attrctor dimensions, and continue to offer the possibility that dimensions or similar quantitative measures of chaotic activity of EEG's might be used to track changes in cognitive activity or pathological conditions.
