It is known that an electroencephalogram (EEG) is characterized by the unique and personal features of an individual. The EEG frequency components are contained the significant and immaterial information, and then each importance of these frequency components is different. These combinations are often unique like individual human beings and yet they have underlying basic characteristics. We think that these combinations and/or the importance of the frequency components show the personal features. Therefore we propose the two techniques for estimating the personal features. A simple genetic algorithm is used for specifying these frequency combinations. Other technique, a real-coded genetic algorithm is used for estimating the importance of EEG frequency components. Then a latency structure model based on the personal features is used for extracted the feature vector of the EEG. Furthermore, the visualization map is used for evaluating the extracted feature vector of the EEG. In order to show the effectiveness of the proposed methods, the performance of the proposed method is evaluated using real EEG data.
