Event-Related Potential (ERP) technique is widely used to measure the time course of brain activity across a range of basic science and clinical science domains. Deep Dive Into ERPs Technique Course is intended for beginning and intermediate ERP researchers, and it will provide them with training in the essential aspects of the ERP technique, giving them a solid foundation for conducting research on normal and abnormal functioning of the mind and brain.
The course will involve a combination of lectures, discussions, and laboratory activities. An integrated set of lectures on the fundamentals of ERPs will be given by the instructor.
The concluding goal of this organized course is to increase the quality and quantity of future ERP researches and will provide intensive training in the use of a technique that is used to measure the brain’s electrical activity in both healthy individuals and individuals suffering from disorders of the mind and brain. This enhanced training will allow scientists to make more rapid progress in understanding the operation of the normal brain and in understanding and measuring a variety of mental and neural disorders, which will ultimately lead to improved diagnosis of these disorders as well as improved assessments of new treatments.
What is ERPLAB toolbox?
ERPLAB toolbox is a freely available, open-source toolbox for processing and analyzing event-related potential (ERP) data in the MATLAB environment.
ERPLAB is closely integrated with EEGLAB, a popular open-source toolbox that provides many EEG preprocessing steps and an excellent user interface design. ERPLAB adds to EEGLAB’s EEG processing functions, providing additional tools for filtering, artifact detection, re-referencing, and sorting of events. ERPLAB’s tools can be accessed either from an easy-to-learn graphical user interface or from MATLAB scripts, and a command history function makes it easy for users with no programming experience to write scripts. Consequently, ERPLAB provides both ease of use and virtually unlimited power and flexibility, making it appropriate for the analysis of both simple and complex ERP experiments.
