FieldTrip is the Matlab software toolbox for MEG and EEG analysis that is being developed at the Donders Institute for Brain, Cognition and Behaviour at the Radboud University Nijmegen, the Netherlands together with collaborating institutes. The development of FieldTrip is currently supported by funding from the BrainGain and the Human Connectome projects. The FieldTrip software is released as open source under the GNU general public license.
The toolbox includes algorithms for simple and advanced analysis of MEG, EEG, and invasive electrophysiological data, such as time-frequency analysis, source reconstruction using dipoles, distributed sources and beamformers and non-parametric statistical testing. It supports the data formats of all major MEG systems (CTF, Neuromag, BTi) and of the most popular EEG systems, and new formats can be added easily. FieldTrip contains high-level functions that you can use to construct your own analysis protocols in Matlab. Furthermore, it easily allows developers to incorporate low-level algorithms for new EEG/MEG analysis methods.

The Biomag conference in Halifax just started. There are quite some people from the FieldTrip team attending, so if you want to interact: find one of us. We will be wearing FieldTrip T-shirts, so should be easy to spot!

If you are interested in seeing one of our core team members at work, please go to the Public Library in Nijmegen! Lilla took position there to finish her PhD thesis and is completing the introductory and concluding chapter as a public performance. You can follow her live on http://www.ustream.tv/channel/science-is-born. She will be there until 8 December, when she will complete her manuscript.

On October 22nd general DCCN network maintenance is needed and the FieldTrip website, the ftp, svn and bugzilla server will all be down between 6:30AM and 9:00AM (CET). Hopefully the maintenance will be without issues and the downtime will be a bit shorter than announced.

We just completed the workshop in Toronto hosted by Thilo Womelsdorf. Martin Vinck (UvA) and Robert presented the spike and LFP data processing capabilities to a group of approximately 50 participants from various labs in Canada.
