The complexity of occupational stress electroencephalogram
Abstract: It is an important method for using electroencephalogram (EEG) to detect and diagnose occupational Stress in clinical practice. In this paper, the complexity analysis method based on Jensen-Shannon Divergence was used to calculate the complexity of occupational stress electroencephalogram from students and nurses.The study found that the complexity of nurses’ EEG was higher than that of students’ EEG. The result can be used to assisted clinical diagnosis.
