Human brain is the most complicated network and its functional mechanism is a demanding concept in neuroscience research. Graph theory and forms an interesting tool for modeling the brain interactions and estimated brain parameters. In this paper, we consider synchronization features for modeling brain operations in electro-encephalogram (EEG) responses to kanizsa and fractal stimuli, using minimal spanning tree (MST) on a network of phase synchronization EEG channels. Graphs of phase-synchronization activity and MST structures are computed using these graphs. The proposed approach yields evidence that the fractal stimuli generate stronger energy response and synchronization of theta band in occipital lobe.
