Since the EEG signal has the characteristics of non-stationary,weak,and large frequency difference,it is difficult to obtain a higher recognition accuracy.In order to improve the performance of EEG sentiment analysis,this paper conducts research from two aspects:feature extraction and feature selection.In terms of feature extraction,based on the power spectrum intensity,the balanced power spectrum intensity feature (BPSI) is adopted.For feature selection,a feature fusion algorithm FFS is proposed,which combines the Relief and mRMR to reduce the feature dimension and improve the recognition performance.This paper uses the SVM classification algorithm,and carries out experiments on DEAP data.Experimental results show that,compared with the power spectrum intensity,the classification accuracy of the BPSI feature is increased by 6.22% on average.The performance is increased by 3.9 points with features selected by the FFS compared with the baseline,by 1.84 points compared with the Relief,and by 2.05 points compared with the mRMR.The average accuracy of the emotion recognition algorithm based on the BPSI and FFS reaches 88.89% in Valence dimension and 87.73% in Arousal dimension,and meanwhile the average feature dimension is reduced from 160 to 67.
