Abstract: The electroencephalography (EEG) signals are contaminated by ocular artifacts usually called as ElectroOculoGraphy(EOG) artifacts. This occurs due to an eye movement and repeatedly blinking eyes, it is a major barrier to overcome when analyzing ElectroEncephaloGram (EEG) data. In this paper, Generalized Eigen Value Decomposition (GEVD) algorithm based on Multichannel Wiener filter (MWF) was proposed. In the GEVD algorithm, the covariance matrix of the artifact is identified and substituted by low rank approximation. For both real and hybrid EEG data is demonstrated using this algorithm and also compared with other existing methods for removal of artifacts. This paper determines generic, robust and fast algorithm for artifact removal of various types of EEG signals. Signal to Error Ratio (SER) and Artifact to Residue Ratio (ARR) both are expressed in dBs. The better performance of artifact removal is expressed with high SER which measures clean EEG distortion and ARR measures the artifact estimation.
