This study considers the prediction of driver's cognitive states from electroencephalographic (EEG) data. Extracting EEG features correlated with driver's cognitive states is key for achieving accurate prediction. However, high dimensionality and temporal-and-spatial correlations of EEG data make extraction of effective features difficult. This study explores the approaches based on deep belief networks (DBN) for feature extraction and dimension reduction. Experimental results of this study showed that DBN applied to channel epochs (DBN-C) produces the most discriminant features and the best classification performance is achieved when DBN-C is applied to the time-frequency and independent-component analysis transformed EEG data. The results suggested that DBN-C is a promising new method for extracting complex, discriminant features for EEG-based brain computer interfaces.
