In this paper, an architecture based on adaptive neuro-fuzzy inference systems (ANFIS) assembled to recurrent neural networks, applied to the problem of mental tasks temporal classification, is proposed. The electroencephalographic signals (EEG) are pre-processed through band-pass filtering in order to separate the set of energy signals in alpha and beta bands. The energy in each band is represented by fuzzy sets obtained through an ANFIS system, and the temporal sequence corresponding to the combination to be detected, associated to the specific mental task, is entered into a recurrent neural networks. This experiment has been carried out in the context of brain-computer-interface (BCI) systems development. Experimentation using EEG signals corresponding to mental tasks exercises, obtained from a database available to the international community for research purposes, is reported. Two recurrent neural networks are used for comparison purposes: Elman network and a fully connected recurrent neural network (FCRNN) trained by RTRL-EKF (real time recurrent learning – extended Kalman filter). A classification rate of 88.12% in average was obtained through the FCRNN during the generalization stage.
