Abstract Supervised classification within EEG signals has previously been applied only within Brain Computer Interfaces. In this thesis, classification rates are examined for EEG data originating from the cognitive science experiment called the Standard Object Recognition Paradigm, where the activation of human memory is activated by visual stimulation. Applying methods previously used within Brain Computer Interfaces such as the Support Vector Machine and feature selection algorithms, the classification rates for the data are improved, showing that the data contains enough signal to achieve feasible classification rates. Aspects within Support Vector Machine classification and general EEG classification are discussed. By applying a kernel based visualisation method with the Support Vector Machine, it is shown that this method is capable of extracting information from EEG signals, by finding that the signal content used for the classification, is the one expected to be present from previous studies of the Standard Object Recognition Paradigm.
