## EEG Steady State Evoked Potential Dataset


![](BrainScanviaEEG.jpg)
---


The EEG Steady State Evoked Potential dataset is a complex and advanced database of EEG (brainwave) Signals recorded from 30 participants to study Steady State Visually Evoked Potentials (SSVEP).

The data was recorded via the Emotiv Epoc+ EEG Headset while participants were exposed to different stimuli. The details of the participants and tests are explained in the Signals Database included in the dataset. The available CSV files contain raw time-series brainwave signals sampled at 128Hz while the participants were shown different stimuli.

The Emotiv Epoc+ EEG Headset has 14 electrodes placed at different areas of the scalp. Time-series data from each electrode is present in each column of the CSV data files. 

This data set can be used to explore which areas of the brain are active during different types of stimuli (for example, visual stimuli and motor imagery will be processed by different regions of the brain and hence different electrodes will be activated).

This data set is recommended for exploring dimensionality reduction techniques and classification models.
