ECoG/sEEG FieldTrip bootcamp at UC Davis

We’re hosting the first ECoG/sEEG FieldTrip bootcamp at the UC Davis Medical Center (Sacramento, California) on March 20-22. The workshop will consist of lectures and hands-on sessions covering the methods implemented in FieldTrip. Speakers include Robert Oostenveld (Donders Institute), Arjen Stolk (UC Berkeley, Donders), Bob Knight (UC Berkeley), and Fady Girgis (UC Davis). For more information, including how to register, please visit the bootcamp website.

EEG/MEG data for the hands-on sessions are available here.

iEEG data for the hands-on sessions are available here.

Getting started with the hands-on sessions

To ensure that everything runs smooth, please use a recent version of FieldTrip. To get going, you need to start MATLAB. Then, you need to issue the following command

cd C:\your_fieldtrip_location

Please do NOT use the graphical path management tool from MATLAB. In this hands-on session we’ll manage the path from the command line, but in general you are much better off using the startup.m file than the path GUI.

Please do NOT add FieldTrip with all subdirectories, subdirectories will be added automatically when needed, and only when needed. See also this frequently asked question.

The restoredefaultpath command clears your path, keeping only the official MATLAB toolboxes. The addpath(pwd) statement adds the present working directory, i.e. the directory containing the FieldTrip main functions. The ft_defaults command ensures that all required subdirectories are added to the path.

If you get the error β€œcan’t find the command ft_defaults” you should check that you are in the correct directory.

After installing FieldTrip to your path, you need to change into the hands-on specific directory, containing the data that is necessary to run the specific hands-on session.
