The regulation of functions such as respiratory or heart rate in human body as well as the control of motor movements are under the control of nervous system. As these actions and correlated tasks are directly influenced by the brain, the brain monitoring gives the possibility to differentiate the tasks, enabling at the same time the prediction of further actions. In this contribution, publicly available electroencephalography (EEG) datasets are analyzed with respect to the detection of epileptic seizure occurrence and BCI-related actions (here: cued motor imagery). For these purposes, timefrequency- based feature extraction alongside different classification methods is used. To perform the classification, Artificial Neural Network (ANN) and Support Vector Machine (SVM) are utilized and compared with previously obtained results. The feasibility of particular features for the detection of epileptic seizures and BCI-related tasks is discussed. Four different feature vectors per analyzed problem are identified. Acceptable accuracy of classification using ANN- and SVMbased classifiers is achieved using identified feature vectors.
