In this paper, an automatic seizure detection technique using multichannel EEG is proposed based on Metacognitive Complex-valued Interval Type-2 Fuzzy Inference System (McCIT2FIS). A wavelet chaos theory based feature extraction is employed to extract the features from EEG signal as it can handle the non stationarity in data and Sparse Multinomial Logistic Regression via Bayesian L1 Regularisation (SBMLR) based feature selection is employed to select the most discriminative features. McCIT2FIS is employed to classify the samples as either interictal or ictal EEG segment as it has been shown to be capable of handling noisy data by virtue of Interval Type-2 fuzzy sets, and is good at classification because of its ability to handle complex-valued data. Further, we have also shown that the feature selected using SBMLR can be successfully mapped back to the channels allowing us to identify the epileptogenic regions of the brain. The performance of the McCIT2FIS was also compared with the support vector machines and the results indicate that McCIT2FIS is better capable of detecting seizure based on EEG signals.
