Many of preterm babies suffer from neural disorders caused by birth complications. Hence, early prediction of neural disorders, in preterm infants, is extremely crucial for neuroprotective intervention. In this scope, the goal of this research was to propose an automatic way to study preterm babies Electroencephalograms (EEG). EEG were preprocessed and a time series of standard deviation was computed. These series were thresholded to detect Inter Burst Intervals (IBI). Features were extracted from bursts and IBI and were then classified as Abnormal or Normal using a Multiple Linear Regression. The method was successfully validated on a corpus of 100 infants with no early indication of brain injury. It was also implemented with a user-friendly interface using Java.
