Biometric person recognition using EEG signals has received considerable attention in recent years. This paper proposes a new feature based on the co-activation of EEG sensors. A visual representation of this co-activation feature is used to illustrate the identity-bearing nature of the proposed feature. The DEAP database was used to evaluate the proposed feature which was presented in the form of a visual signature indicating the spatial correlations around the scalp of EEG signals for an individual. The results show a high identification accuracy irrespective of the emotional state of the data subjects.
