IERASG workshop

This workshop will a number of aspects of Advnced EEG analysis. We will cover:

-Data simulation using the free BESA simulator

-We will perform ERP, time-frequency and source analysis of this simulated data using EEGLAB, FieldTrip and BrainStorm.

-We will similuate alpha osillations in FieldTrip and do a beamformer source reconstruction.

-We will learn how to write EEGLAB scripts using the eegh function

-We look at cochlear implant artifact reductions using ICA

-We will use temporal response functions for analyzing ongoing running speech using the mTRF toolbox.

Example scripts and datasets are provided below.

There are lots of online tutorials to supplement the workshop. Please visit the links below for the tutorials.

Also, links for youtube lectures are given below.
