Accurate detection and characterization of changes in EEG signal is crucial for clinical assessment of the neurological system condition. Several distance measures are tested and evaluated for their effectiveness of detecting injury-related changes in EEG. Itakura distance is found to be a very efficient means to characterize changes in EEG for both signaling injury and predicting recovery. The efficiency of the Itakura distance measure is further established through a comparison study of spectral distance measure and KL information.
