The purpose of this study is to detect the epileptic seizures, which can be indicated by the abnormal disturbances in intracranial neurons using the electroencephalogram (EEG) signals. The EEG signals are grouped into three categories viz., Normal EEG signals (Z and O subsets), Seizure-free EEG signals (N and F subsets), and Seizure EEG signals (S subset). Whereas, for classification in this study, EEG signals are divided into three groups namely NF-S, O-FS, and ZO-NF-S. The signal length is fixed to be 4096 samples. The EEG signals will be decomposed by using Tunable-Q Wavelet Transform (TQWT), which produces intrinsic mode functions (IMFs) in decreasing order of frequency. These IMFs are analysed to gather the features of these signals, which help to classify them into various categories, and these features are fed as inputs to three classifiers viz., Random Forest (RF), Decision Table (DT), and Logistic Regression (LR). Logistic Regression classifier has showed higher accuracy, specificity and sensitivity for NF-S and O-F-S groups in comparison to RF and DT classifiers, whereas, Random Forest classifier expressed higher accuracy, specificity and sensitivity for ZO-NF-S groups in comparison to other classifiers. By utilising LR classifier, the suitable parameters of TQWT in NF-S (seizure-free vs. Seizure) are Q=6, r=3, and J=9 and showed maximum accuracy of 98%; and in O-F-S (Normal vs. Seizure-free vs. Seizure), Q=1, r=3, and J=9 attained maximum accuracy of 94.7%. Whereas, in ZONF-S (Normal vs. Seizure-free vs. Seizure), Q=4, r=3, and J=9 expressed maximum accuracy of 99.8% utilising Random Forest classifier.
