Study on EEG Feature Extraction under LED Color Exposure to Enhance the Concentration


Article Preview

Since brain waves are expressed in a variety of frequency domains, they were used to analyze a correlation between colors and concentration. In this study, the brain wave reacting when exposed to colors was defined as a color brain wave (CBW). Also the colors on the table were changed during task performance to see colors’ influence on improving concentration and then the brave waves were measured for analysis on and comparison with the findings from the task performance. Based on the biometric data experiment conducted, it was confirmed that the findings during the task performance and those from EEG signals have a correlation and that human’s concentration is thus affected by changes of colors.
