Course syllabus: Students will learn the basics of EEG & MEG including signal generation and measurement. They will be introduced into time-series analysis, time-frequency analysis, source localization and spatio-temporal modeling, and fusion with other modalities (e.g., local field potentials, DTI, fMRI). Based on this overview of available experimental techniques, their pros and cons as well as specific prerequisites can be assessed and various kinds of data analysis methods can be performed. The latter will be trained in practical sessions.

Course credits and conditions:  2 ECTS; At least 80% course participation and successfully presenting and discussing a paper relevant to the content of the lecture series in a separate half-day session after the lecture series.
