FieldTrip workshop in Oslo


RITMO Centre for Interdisciplinary Studies in Rhythm, Time and Motion
Forskningsveien 3A
0373 Oslo

Place of workshop

Room 3417 Terminalstue Assembler
Ole-Johan Dahls hus
Address: Gaustadalléen 23B.


Wednesday June 12th - Friday June 14th 2019


The RITMO Centre is the local organizer. Sabine Leske and Alejandro Omar Blenkmann are in charge of the local organization.

Lau Møller Andersen (Karolinska Institute, Stockholm) and Britta Westner (CFIN, Aarhus University) are the lecturers.

There will be room for ~30 participants. RITMO centre employees and students have priority. When the local organizers have assessed how many RITMO affiliates are attending, the workshop will be open to external participants if there are still places left.

N.B.! Note that links to lectures are not up yet, but will before the summer break is over.

The data used for the hands-on sessions

During the hands-on sessions we will use a task EEG dataset recorded in a auditory oddball experiment.

You can download the data from our download server. The data can also be provided on a USB stick during the hands-on sessions.

Installing FieldTrip and setting up MATLAB

For the hands-on sessions you have to start MATLAB. To ensure that everything runs smooth, we will work with a clean version of FieldTrip from the download server.

  1. Download all the files, please keep the same directory structure (i.e. split over hands-on sessions)
  2. Unzip fieldtrip.zip file to the folder where you usually keep your MATLAB packages
  3. Unzip dicom.zip into a folder called dicom, which should be in the same directory where you keep the other data files (from step 1)

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 a startup.m file than the path GUI.

Please do NOT add FieldTrip with all subdirectories, subdirectories will be added automatically when needed, but only when needed.
