We present in this paper a study of three EEG signals feature extraction techniques. These techniques have been widely employed in researches of emotional states recognition: statistical characteristics, features based on PSD (Power Spectral Density) and features based on HOC (High Order Crossings). The validation was performed via classification of emotional states of calm and stress using the K-NN based classifier in off-line mode using EEG signals from available DEAP database. The best results achieved were 70.1%, using the PSD based technique, and 69.59% using the HOC based technique.
