The documentation for FieldTrip is split into several parts:
- Tutorial documentation
- Frequently asked questions
- Example MATLAB scripts
- Reference documentation and configuration index
- Video lectures
- Method references
- Review and teaching material
- Template models and data
- Realtime BCI
The tutorials will help you to get started by providing examples that you can copy-and-paste into Matlab. The introduction tutorial provides a short introduction in the the ideas behind the FieldTrip toolbox. The Walkthrough will give you a more thorough overview of the conceptual ideas behind MEG and EEG analysis and how the toolbox is used.
The frequently asked questions section provides a lot of practical information. Furthermore, the example MATLAB scripts contains pieces of documentation that are often not so elaborate as the tutorials, but that go in more detail into specific aspects of the data, code or analysis.
