According to the researches, it turns out that human's activities are the results of the internal-neural activities of their brain. The reflection of such activities which are propagated throughout the scalp can then be acquired and processed. In this regard, brain signals can be acquired and recorded by EEG (Electroencephalography). Researchers have applied different technqiues for acquiring, pre-processing, feature extrcation and reduction and classifying EEG signal. According to published papers by Iranian researchers until 2015, it  has been found that most studies have been performed in medical applications and brain computer interface fields. Sampling and receiving EEG signals have been performed more in the central region than other regions. Statistical technqiues have more been used for feature extraction than other technqiues. Finally, the support vector machines are mostly used in the classification of brain signals. At the end, a study on anxiety and depression detection on fifty cases was performed in medical field. Simulation results show that our approach achieve an accuracy of up to 97 percents.
