It is very important to understand the brain’s biological cognition data processing mechanism for human cognitive ability and concentration enhancement. Based on biological data processing area and information flow, concentration indicators were defined to interpret the brain data processing mechanism in concentration by engineering, and cognitive concentration model based on this was proposed. The cognitive concentration model is the change of concentration patterns shown by EEG signal. The value of cognitive concentration model was verified with the EEG signals acquired from Subjects solving mathematical questions with different difficulties.
