Recent research has underscored the potential role of analysis of EEG signals as indicators of cognitive decline. In addition, we have also seen the emergence of embedded systems that are capable of analyzing biological signals in real time to track a number of physiological variables and make accurate conclusions about the individual's physiological status and health. This paper presents the design of an embedded system which is capable of tracking relevant bio-signals from the person in real time and facilitating a dependable decision making process that provides alerts for potential brain activity changes. The design focuses around the use of sensors and a processing element. It incorporates the use of electroencephalography (EEG) and oxygen saturation (SpO2) signals. As an early proof-of-concept, our system collects data from the sensors, performs initial processing and provides the framework to compute significant physiological variables.
