The aim of this study is to assess the performance of additivity-based linear filtering techniques into two groups in extracting of auditory Evoked Potentials (EPs) from a relatively small number of sweeps. We named these groups as: Group A (The Wiener Filtering (WF) and coherence weighted WF (CWWF)) of orthogonal projections) and Group B (standard adaptive algorithms of Least Mean Square (LMS), Recursive Least Square (RLS), and one-step Kalman filtering (KF)). All methods are compared to the traditional ensemble averaging (EA) in simulations, pseudo-simulations and experimental studies based on the signal-to-noise-ratio (SNR) enhancement. We observed that the KF is the best methods among them. The filtering of the projections instead of the raw data improves the performance of filtering operations in both cases of the LMS and WE The CWWF works better than the conventional WF when it is applied to the projections as well.
