Abstract: Automatic detection of depression state was significant for mental disease diagnostics and rehabilitation, which could decrease the duration of work required when inspecting the electroencephalography(EEG)signals. A novel method for feature extraction and pattern recognition from subjects resting state EEG signal, based upon empirical mode decomposition(EMD)and support vector machine(SVM)was proposed to make a distinction between depression patients and normal controls. The EEG signals were collected from 20 depression patients and 25 normal persons, and the EEG was filtered and extracted as features. The SVM was used as classifier for recognition which showed whether the person was a depression patient. The experimental results showed that the algorithm could achieve the specificity of 93.3%. And the classification accuracy from the features extracted by EMD was higher than the classification accuracy from features extracted by wavelet clearly.

Key words: EEG, intrinsic mode function(IMF), EMD, depression, SVM
