MATLAB and matrix introductory reading material

EEGLAB graphic interface is built on top of the powerful MATLAB scripting language. Enjoying the full capabilities of EEGLAB for building macro commands and performing custom and automated processing requires the ability to manipulate EEGLAB data structures in MATLAB. Because of time constrains, we will NOT provide an introduction to the MATLAB language. Instead users need to familiarize themselves with MATLAB prior to the workshop. Users of MATLAB 7: we recommend running the following demos and reading the following help sections.

After opening the MATLAB desktop, select menu item “Help Demos” and run the following demos. Note that while the demo is running, you can retype the text (or copy it) to the main MATLAB window:

  • Mathematics - Basic Matrix Operations
  • Mathematics - Matrix manipulations
  • Graphics - 2-D Plots
  • Programming - Manipulating Multidimentional arrays
  • Programming - Structures

In the Help Content, read and practice at least the following sections:

  • Getting Started - Matrices and Arrays - Matrices and Magic squares
  • Getting Started - Matrices and Arrays - Expressions
  • Getting Started - Matrices and Arrays - Working with Matrices
  • Getting Started - Graphics - Basic plotting functions
  • Getting Started - Programming - Flow Control
  • Getting Started - Programming - Other data structures
  • Getting Started - Programming - Scripts and Functions

Each section or demo (if read thoroughly) should take you about 10 minutes, for a total here of about 2 hours. We encourage you to watch these demos and read these sections over several days.

IMPORTANT NOTE: A large portion of the workshop will be dedicated to writing EEGLAB scripts, so not being able to understand MATLAB syntax will result in you missing out on a large portion of the workshop.

Relevant publications using ICA/EEGLAB

Material to Download

If you are using your own laptop, please install the latest version of EEGLAB:

Latest EEGLAB version here:

Tutorial scripts Download scripts for certain tutorial sessions with scripting components.

Tutorial slides Download the PDFs of the tutorial lectures here.

EEGLAB dataset: single subject This is a sample dataset for use in the first few tutorial sessions. This is a dataset from the Sternberg experiment (same as used for the full STUDY).

EEGLAB STUDY with 13 subjects (2.3 GB) This is a VERY large file and may fail the first few times you try. Make sure you have a fast and reliable internet connection before attempting this download.

NFT: Neuroelectromagnetic Forward Head Modeling Toolbox (11 MB) Download the NFT plugin software.

NFT: Neuroelectromagnetic Forward Head Modeling demo data (2.3 GB) This is also a VERY large file and may fail the first few times you try. Make sure you have a fast and reliable internet connection before attempting this download.

Tim Mullen’s connectivity toolbox and sample data. Will be available soon.

You will also be able to download all presented material from this site during and after the workshop, so don’t panic if you can’t download it before the workshop starts.
