[Eeglablist] Number of samples

Remember that EEG is a very dynamic signal. Hence, longer samples is not expected to give better information as the signal changes within the sample window. However, increasing the sampling rate, increases the information. According to Nyquist you will be able to reconstruct a signal if you sample faster than the double of the highest frequency in the signal. However, that is when the signal is stable (EEG is not) and the sample is infinite long. Practically you will often end up sampling 5-10 time the highest frequency in biological signals.

Dear Samaneh,

Samples you mean sampling points? Yes of course. The more sampling points you have, the better (i.e. smoother and more reliable) the results are.

Dear EEGLAB users,
I would like to be sure,whether the results of analysis of EEG using  FFT or DWT depend on the number of samples?If is so, what is best choice for number of samples?
With very kind regards,

Samaneh .Valipour
