Table 3.2 Description of EEG data files and E-Prime file

S. No.

File name




Resting state EEG recording at eyes-closed condition (provided for 5 weeks)



Resting state EEG recording at eyes-open condition (provided for 5 weeks)



EEG data recorded during performing oddball task (provided for 5 weeks). The ERP signals can be extracted by detecting the visual stimulus events using channels 23 or 24 in discovery data.


Event File.xlsx

This event file contains the events information of the oddball task (ERP). This file can be accessed from BookDataChap03EEG DataEEG Raw Data. The event file contains time stamps of ERP data recorded in five different times, i.e., week0, week1 ... week4. There are 400 events and three categories of stimuli (shape). The time stamps of each recording are listed in the event file as a column.


Oddball Task

This experiment is designed in E-Prime software, which can be accessed from BookDataChap03Experiment DesignOddball Task. The task contains three visual stimuli as shown in Fig. 3.5. The experiment can only be opened in E-Prime software.
