Abstract

The authors investigate the applicability of Prony modelling to the estimation of evoked potentials. Four types of total least squares (TLS) model are considered and their optimal parameters are defined based on ten visual averaged EPs. Simulations with various signal and noise characteristics show that the TLS-Prony estimation is superior to averaging for two of the models, namely the unconstrained and the stable models. Application of the TLS-Prony estimator as a post-processor to moderate averaging allows a reduction in the number of responses averaged, or equivalently of recording time, by a factor of two.
