EOG correction: A new aligned-artifact average solution

Journal Article


Abstract


  • Objective: In the field of EOG correction, discrepancies have been found between the propagation rates for different types and frequencies of eye movement. However, Croft and Barry demonstrated that these differences cap be explained by the affect of EOG magnitude on the correction procedure (Croft, R.J. and Barry, R.J. EOG correction: anew perspective. Electroenceph. clin. Neurophysiol., 1998, 107: 387-394). This study utilized a new 'aligned- artifact average' technique (AAA) to examine whether propagation is constant across eye movement types and frequencies, and tested the. AAA as an EOG correction tool. Methods: Two experiments manipulated interference levels in real data sets to determine if interference affected propagation coefficients (Bs). The third tested real data for the effect of forward propagation of eye movement related neural potentials on, and the fourth utilized computer simulations to assess the effectiveness of the new AAA correction procedure. Results: Interference was found to inflate B at low EOG amplitude, and its removal removed B variation and inflation. The forward propagation of eye movement related neural potentials had very little effect on B. The AAA procedure produced near perfect corrections of the simulated data, superior to a comparison method. Conclusions: EOG propagation is constant across eye movement types and frequencies, and thus only one correction coefficient should be calculated and applied to data. The AAA method provides a more accurate correction and makes possible, for the first time, the adequate correction of posterior sites.
