Time series analysis with Fieldtrip: concepts and applications

In my talk I will present an overview of the most important analysis methods recently developed at the FC Donders Centre, which have been implemented in our FieldTrip software. Topics that I will cover are how certain features of our experimental design have influenced the implementation of the algorithms, such as hazard-rate control (variable trial lengts), gamma-band analyses (multitapering), coherence analysis (beamforming) and manipulation of experimental parameters (randomization-based statistics). The relevance of these concepts will be demonstrated based on some of our recent studies aimed at elucidating "communication through coherence" as a fundamental mechanism within networks in the brain.
