Excerpt from the Abstract:

"Epilepsy is one of the world's most common neurological diseases. Early prediction of the incoming seizures has a great influence on epileptic patients' life. In this paper, a novel patient-specific seizure prediction technique based on deep learning and applied to long-term scalp electroencephalogram (EEG) recordings is proposed. The goal is to accurately detect the preictal brain state and differentiate it from the prevailing interictal state as early as possible and make it suitable for real time."
