Abstract:

The report discusses the design and fabrication of the electronic detectors necessary for analyzing an animal EEGs and the software for computer processing of the data. Although analysis of human EEGs are not completed, it has been noted that monitoring the high frequencies present in the frontal channels provide a good indicator of whether or not the subject is awake. This activity appears to provide a more sensitive indicator of alterness than does alpha activity.
