In this work, we model electroencephalography (EEG) signals as the stochastic output of a double Duffing - van der Pol oscillator networks. We develop a novel optimization scheme to match data generated from the model with clinically obtained EEG data from subjects under resting eyes-open (EO) and eyes-closed (EC) conditions and derive models with outputs that show very good agreement with EEG signals in terms of both frequency and information contents. The results, reinforced by statistical analysis, shows that the EEG recordings under EC and EO resting conditions are distinct realizations of the same underlying model occurring due to parameter variations. Furthermore, the EC and EO EEG signals each exhibit distinct nonlinear dynamic characteristics. In summary, it is established that the stochastic coupled nonlinear oscillator network can provide a useful framework for modeling and analysis of EEG signals that are recorded under variety of conditions.
