Abstract
We applied nonlinear dynamics theory to EEG analysis of schizophrenic patie nts and estimated the correlation dimension with both temporal embedding an d spatial embedding A higher D-2 was found when using a time-delay embeddin g method. Especially at F-7 and Fp(1), a significant Increase showed. We co ncluded that more complex activity occurred in certain lobes of schizophren ic patients. Using the spatial embedding method, a relative lower global co rrelation dimension was obtained. This shows that there might be a diffuse slow wave activity through a schizophrene's global cerebrum. Finally we dis cuss the study from three angles of clinical semiology, spectrum analysis a nd neuropsychology and draw some conclusions about the relationship between the nonlinear analysis of schizophrenia EEG and clinical research. It seem s that the theory of a nonlinear dynamics system is a powerful tool for EEG research and may prove useful in complementing visual analysis of EEG acco mpanied with other study means for brain electrical activity.
