Investigation of Sleepiness Induced by Insomnia Medication Treatment and Sleep Deprivation
The main objective of this work is the study of EEG signals in order to investigate sleepiness induced from drug administration for insomnia and sleep deprivation. Data used in this work were obtained from real experiments in FORENAP, France and in CERTH, Thessaloniki, Greece. The features under consideration are Power Spectrum in certain frequency areas, alpha slow-wave index (ASI) and Fractal Dimension (FD) for placebo and verum subjects. Studying these features in the above groups, we found that sleepiness due to hypnotic medication and due to sleep deprivation can cause different behaviour in brain activity at certain locations. These EEG characteristics could be used for the classification of the medication intake (verum or placebo) and its effect.
