Feature extraction and classification are still challenging tasks to detect ictal (i.e., seizure period) and interictal (i.e., period between seizures) EEG signals for the treatment and precaution of the epileptic seizure patient due to different stimuli and brain locations. Existing seizure and non-seizure feature extraction and classification techniques are not good enough for the classification of ictal and interictal EEG signals considering for their non-abruptness phenomena, inconsistency in different brain locations, type (general/partial) of seizures, and hospital settings. In this paper we present generic seizure detection approaches for feature extraction of ictal and interictal signals using various established transformations and decompositions. We extract a number of statistical features using novel ways from high frequency coefficients of the transformed/decomposed signals. The least square support vector machine is applied on the features for classifications. Results demonstrate that the proposed methods outperform the existing state-of-the-art methods in terms of classification accuracy, sensitivity, and specificity with greater consistence for the large size benchmark dataset in different brain locations.
