Hello, just
​some ​
extra notes below for you
​. ​
​Good luck!


"Feature-extraction" can mean many different things. Also, remember that
Google and Google scholar can help you find a lot of what you need.
Try reviewing a dozen or so recent articles in developmental or
neuroscience journals on your EEG topic. There you can find the best
metrics, and also contact the authors for the metrics.​
Beginner books like Luck's Introduction to ERPs and Mike Cohen's
Time-Frequency books are certainly also useful if you've not read them in
full yet.

TAPEEG may have some source estimation features which are cutting-edge but
have not been activated yet.
​ ​
In many cases you have to build the tools yourself to compute the metrics.
One can learn a lot
​ by doing so. ​

You can
 on Google the many for-pay software/metrics available from companies like
EGI, Brain Vision, Brain Voyager, and other EEG hardware, software, or
analysis companies.

You can search for
​and closely review ​
​free and for-pay ​
EEG tools here:
​ ​

ou can learn about most available public/aceadadmic EEG softwares here at
the full issue on
Academic Software Applications for Electromagnetic Brain Mapping Using MEG
and EEG

​Several companies sell suites you can buy, like Neuroguide from Applied
Neuroscience that sort of give you a report full of metrics from EEG.​ See
also for example the B-Alert metrics.
You can also try the Hermes toolbox, which computes at least a dozen
different EEG-based connectivity metrics.
You can also try the NBT toolbox and also the Connectivity Toolbox (many
metrics) from Sporns. For machine learning-based feature extraction
consider the features computed in BCI toolbox.

You might
​ ​
​ ​
want to
​ thoroughly review the
 QEEG literature,
​ ​
or the machine learning literature,
or the traditional EEG/ERP literature (e.g., power, topography, erps).
You may also want to review recent papers about connectivity measures
​, or
the TBI literature

More recent or advanced measures will tend not to have toolboxes or
published methods.
​ review
review the lists of measures in  each of the articles
​I've listed below for you​
