Automatic interpretation of electroencephalograms (EEG) is complicated due to fluctuation of background activity, paroxysmal activities, artifacts, and use of different electrode montages. Previous attempts at automatic EEG interpretation focused on a certain feature such as background activity and paroxysmal abnormalities. The authors’ group has developed a computer-assisted, offline system for automatic comprehensive interpretation of EEG that takes into account all features of the adult waking EEG and provides the results in a written report. The system is not aimed at standardization of EEG interpretation, but its results can match the results of visual inspection by a limited number of qualified EEG-ers. Thus, this system can be adjusted in accordance with the strategy of visual inspection adopted by any EEG-er. Artifacts, spikes, and the vigilance level and attention level of subjects are automatically detected. This system can be used to supplement visual inspection and for training purposes.
