Upon successful completion of this course, students
  • have refined their programming skills (in Matlab) in order to efficiently analyze large-scale experimental data
  • are able to implement a processing chain of prefiltering, statistical analysis and results visualization
  • have acquired an understanding of the theoretical underpinnings of the most common statistical analysis methods and basic machine learning principles
  • have practised using existing toolbox functions for complex analysis tasks
  • know how to implement new analysis algorithms in software from a given mathematical formulation
  • can interpret analysis results in a neuroscientific context
  • have applied these techniques to both single channel and multi-channel neurophysiological data
