Main Article Content

ปรีชา ตั้งเกรียงกิจ


- This study discusses the authentication that uses delta brainwave signals. The purpose is to use only two positions of brainwaves to prove authentication. Based on the principle of supervised neural network, the number of features is reduced. Make learning more effective. The objective of this study was to investigate two-position of brainwave. The Delta brainwave signals of 40 subjects are explored. The practical technique, Independent Component Analysis (ICA) by SOBIRO algorithm is considered clean and separates the individual signals from noise. Delta brainwaves are extracted from brain signal for group recognition using the technique of supervised neural network for authenticating 40 subjects. The number of neurons in the hidden layer 5-26 neurals were test to find the optimal value of authentication for two positions brainwaves
