Twelfth EEGLAB Workshop
The Online EEGLAB Workshop
comprises materials for and videos from the 12th EEGLAB Workshop held at the San Diego Supercomputer Center on the campus of the University of California San Diego (UCSD), La Jolla, California, Nov. 17–22, 2010 (following the Society for Neuroscience meeting in San Diego).
Using the Online EEGLAB Workshop
Videos of the workshop talks are now available for streaming through the links below! The video web pages also contain relevant questions and links to further information. The talk slides are also available for download in PDF format through links below. Individual users or classes may use the videos, slides, and further links to learn or teach how to use EEGLAB, to review the workshop, and/or to prepare for a future workshop.

Matlab and matrix introductory reading material
The EEGLAB graphic interface is built on top of the powerful Matlab scripting language. Enjoying the full capabilities of EEGLAB for building macro commands and performing custom and automated processing requires the ability to manipulate EEGLAB data structures in Matlab. Because of time constraints, we will NOT provide an introduction to the Matlab language. Instead users need to familiarize themselves with Matlab prior to the workshop. Users of Matlab 7: We recommend running the following demos and reading the following help sections.
After opening the Matlab desktop ...
Under "Help > Demos" run the following demos. Note that while the demo is running, you can retype the text (or copy it) to the main Matlab window:
- Mathematics - Basic Matrix Operations
- Mathematics - Matrix manipulations
- Graphics - 2-D Plots
- Programming - Manipulating Multidimentional arrays
- Programming - Structures
Under "Help > Contents", read and practice at least the following sections:
- Getting Started - Matrices and Arrays - Matrices and Magic squares
- Getting Started - Matrices and Arrays - Expressions
- Getting Started - Matrices and Arrays - Working with Matrices
- Getting Started - Graphics - Basic plotting functions
- Getting Started - Programming - Flow Control
- Getting Started - Programming - Other data structures
- Getting Started - Programming - Scripts and Functions
Each section or demo (if read thoroughly) should take you about 10 minutes, for a total here of about 2 hours. We encourage you to watch these demos and read these sections over several days. IMPORTANT NOTE: The practical portions of the workshop are largely dedicated to writing EEGLAB Matlab scripts, so if you are not yet able to understand Matlab syntax, you will not be able to make good use of these sections.
