Sparse Multiview Methods for Classification of Musical Genre from Magnetoencephalography Recordings
Classification of musical genre from audio is a well-researched area of music research. However to the authors’ knowledge no studies have been performed that attempt to identify the genre of music a person is listening to from recordings of their brain activity. It is believed that with the appropriate choice of experimental stimuli and analysis procedures, this discrimination is possible. The main goal of this experiment is to see whether it is possible to detect the genre of music that a listener is attending to from brain signals. The present experiment is focuses on Magnetoencephalography (MEG), which measures magnetic fields produced by electrical activity in the brain. We show that classification of musical genre from brain signals alone is feasible, but unreliable. We show that though the use of sparse multiview methods, such as Sparse Multiview Fisher Discriminant Analysis (SMFDA), we are able to reliably discriminate between different genres.

Analysis of Somatosensory Cortical Responses to Different Electrotactile Stimulations as a Method Towards an Objective Definition of Artificial Sensory Feedback Stimuli : An MEG Pilot Study Liu, Jia; Piitulainen, Harri; Vujaklija, Ivan (IEEE, 2022)Sensory feedback is a critical component in many human-machine interfaces (e.g., bionic limbs) to provide missing sensations. Specifically, electrotactile stimulation is a popular feedback modality able to evoke configurable ...
