Electroencephalogram (EEG) blend reflects the summation of the synchronous activity of thousands or millions of neurons that have parallel spatial direction. EEG Signals are extracted from Human Brain. While Extracting an EEG Signals, large amount of data with diverse categories will be collected from the human skull. To investigate and categorize the valuable information from the EEG recordings, computerized methods are required, because removing any of the components would remove too much of useful EEG signal in sequence. EEG Recordings generally not just contains electrical signals from mind, which is polluted with various artifacts. It is the combinations of unwanted mechanisms like Power Line Noise, Electrocardiogram (ECG), Electrooculogram (EOG) and Electromyogram (EMG). Signals in the EEG that are of non-cerebral origin are called artifacts. So, before analyzing the brain signals they need to be preprocessed. The focus of this paper is proposing the development of an integrated artifacts removal technique that can automatically discover and remove the artifacts in order to smooth the progress of EEG Assessment, and the hybrid pre-processing techniques is based on the joint venture of Adaptive Filtering, Wavelet Denoising and Independent Component Analysis (ICA) in order to improve the feature extraction performance of the EEG Signals. This paper converse the comparison with existing techniques, and discuss the advantages of the proposed hybrid pre-processing Technique.
