Dr. Gruber will review concepts in EEG-signal processing (e.g., filtering, Fourier transform and wavelet filtering) and guide participants through a number of potential analyses of EEG data.
What do i need to know? Basic knowledge of EEG (essential), experience using Matlab will be useful to work through examples (desirable)
Block I: 09:00 – 10:30
- Signal to noise ratio and EEG data
- Basic concepts of filtering raw data
- Ocular correction
- Artifact removal
- Segmentation of EEG-Data
- Averages – do they really show the “components” of an EEG-signal?
- EEG-signal in the time domain – what does it really tell us?
- EEG-signal in the frequency domain – the missing link to understand EEG?
- EEG-signal in the time/frequency domain – what does Heisenberg think of it?
Coffee (10:30 – 10:45)
Block II: 10:45 – 12:15
- Evoked Power, Whole Power, ERS/ERD
- Single trial analysis
- Oscillation and phase
- Matlab and EEG-processing
