Session V
This last session will be hands-on, with guided analysis of sEEG/ECoG data assisted by the course lecturers. Attendees are encouraged to bring their own datasets to analyze; otherwise we will provide some sample datasets available to download.

  • 9:00 – 10:15 FieldTrip Playground (bring your own data)
  • 10:15- 10:30 Coffee break
  • 10:30- 12:30 FieldTrip Playground (bring your own data)
  • 12:30- 13:45 Wrap-up-the-bootcamp and closing remarks


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

restoredefaultpath
cd C:\your_fieldtrip_location
addpath(pwd)
ft_defaults

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 “can’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.
