Electroencephalography (EEG) is a complex bioelectrical signal. Analysis of which can provide researchers with useful physiological information. In order to recognize and classify EEG signals, a pattern recognition method for optimizing the support vector machine (SVM) by using improved squirrel search algorithm (ISSA) is proposed. The EEG signal is preprocessed, with its time domain features being extracted and directed to the SVM as feature vectors for classification and identification. In this paper, the method of good point set is used to initialize the population position, chaos and reverse learning mechanism are introduced into the algorithm. The performance test of the improved squirrel algorithm (ISSA) is carried out by using the benchmark function. As can be seen from the statistical analysis of the results, the exploration ability and convergence speed of the algorithm are improved. This is then used to optimize SVM parameters. ISSA-SVM model is established and built for classification of EEG signals, compared with other common SVM parameter optimization models. For data sets, the average classification accuracy of this method is 85.9%. This result is an improvement of 2–5% over the comparison method.
