This paper presents a power spectral pattern analysis method for quasi-brain-death EEG based on Empirical Mode Decomposition (EMD) under the condition of unknowing the clinical symptoms of patients. EMD method is a time-frequency analysis method for analyzing the nonlinear and non-stationary data. In this paper,we decompose a single-channel recorded EEG data into a number of components with different frequencies, we calculate the power spectral or energy of the decomposed components in a suitable frequency band. Based on the EEG power spectral analysis, the patients are classified into two categories: existence of the brain activities or absence of the brain activities. The experimental results illustrate the effectiveness of our proposed method.
