This article presents an EEG dataset collected using the EMOTIV EEG 5-Channel Sensor kit during four different types of stimulation: Complex mathematical problem solving, Trier mental challenge test, Stroop colour word test, and Horror video stimulation, Listening to relaxing music. The dataset consists of EEG recordings from 22 subjects for Complex mathematical problem solving, 24 for Trier mental challenge test, 24 for Stroop colour word test, 22 for horror video stimulation, and 20 for relaxed state recordings. The data was collected in order to investigate the neural correlates of stress and to develop models for stress detection based on EEG data. The dataset presented in this article can be used for various applications, including stress management, healthcare, and workplace safety. The dataset provides a valuable resource for researchers and developers working on stress detection using EEG data, while the stress detection method provides a useful tool for evaluating the effectiveness of different stress detection models. Overall, this article contributes to the growing body of research on stress detection and management using EEG data and provides a useful resource for researchers and practitioners working in this field.
