In this work we present a study of brain EEG waves – delta, theta, alpha, and gamma bands employing a new ANN based on Paraconsistent Annotated Evidential Logic E( which is capable of manipulating concepts like impreciseness, inconsistency, and paracompleteness in a nontrivial manner. We present the Paraconsistent Artificial Neural Network – PANN with some detail and discuss some applications.
