Electroencephalogram (EEG), Alpha Wave, Beta Wave, Cognitive, Male, Female.



The purpose of this study is to identify the electroencephalogram (EEG) pattern of male and female engineering student during the cognitive activity. EEG is a method to monitoring electrical activity in the brain and has four main brainwave; Delta, Theta, Alpha and Beta. Delta wave is slow wave generated in deepest meditation, Theta Wave usually occurs in sleep, Alpha Wave dominant in calming, relaxing condition and Beta wave dominant in wakeful condition. The raw data collected analysis using SPSS and Microsoft Excel to analysis the accuracy and the brainwave pattern between male and female. The average, standard derivation and correlation are used to analysis the EEG pattern between male and female during cognitive activity. Cognitive one of the bloom taxonomy formulate for education activities. The process involved in decision making, understanding of information, attitudes and solving. Subjects are given a set of question to answer. Total 24 students, 12 male and 12 female involve to recorded their EEG signal during answered the cognitive question by wearing the Emotive Insight device. All subjects are from UTHM engineering students. Data collected are focused in Alpha and Beta which exist in when someone wake condition. From the discussion and analysis there have the different between male and female brainwave during the cognitive activity.
