### Abstract

An extension of the infomax algorithm of Bell and Sejnowski (1995) is presented that is able to blindly separate mixed signals with sub- and super-Gaussian source distributions. This was achieved by using a simple type of learning rule first derived by Girolami (1997) by choosing negentropy as a projection pursuit index. Parameterized probability distributions that have suband super-Gaussian regimes were used to derive a general learning rule that preserves the simple architecture proposed by Bell and Sejnowski (1995), is optimized using the natural gradient by Amari (1998), and uses the stability analysis of Cardoso and Laheld (1996) to switch between sub- and super-Gaussian regimes. We demonstrate that the extended infomax algorithm is able to easily separate 20 sources with a variety of source distributions. Applied to high-dimensional data from electroencephalographic (EEG) recordings, it is effective at separating artifacts such as eye blinks and line noise from weaker electrical ...
