The electroencephalogram is a device that allows obtaining brain signals of the specific skull region, one of these informations that can be taken from it is the stress level of anyone. in that can be done by signal filtrage and clustering with machine learning algorithms, more specifically using Neural Networks with multilayer Perceptrons. Besides, this research uses the Montreal Imaging Stress Task for create in one person a situation that can get signal with can get the signals, and the created algorithm, be capable of measure various stress levels.
