The performances of different off-line methods for two different electroencephalograph (EEG) signal classification tasks-motor imagery and finger movement, are investigated in this paper. The classifiers based on linear discriminant analysis (LDA), quadratic discriminant analysis (QDA), kernel fisher discriminant (KFD), support vector machine (SVM), multilayer perceptron (MLP), learning vector quantization (LVQ) neural network, k-nearest neighbor (k-NN), and decision tree (DT), are compared in terms of classification accuracy. The main purpose of this paper is to provide a fair and extensive comparison of some commonly employed classification methods under the same conditions so that the assessment of different classifiers will be more convictive. As a result, a guideline for choosing appropriate algorithms for EEG classification tasks is provided.
