Sleep staging with deep structured neural net using Gabor layer and data augmentation

2021 Turkish Journal of Electrical Engineering and Computer Sciences  
Slow wave sleep (SWS) and rapid eye movement (REM) are two of the most important sleep stages that are 4 considered in many studies. Detection of these two sleep stages will help researchers in many applications to detect sleep-5 related diseases and disorders and also in many fields of neuroscience studies such as cognitive impairment and memory 6 consolidation. Since manual sleep staging is time-consuming, subjective, and expensive; designing an efficient automatic 7 sleep scoring system will

In recent years, deep learning methods show their potential in different applications. In this 9 study, we propose SWS and REM detection system by using a deep neural network. In the proposed system we use a 10 kernel-based layer to get the system closer to the manual scoring approach. Also, we use a new method for augmenting 11 EEG signals to prevent over-fitting the network. The results show the efficiency of the designed system in SWS and 12 REM detection. 13
