Choosing the right software package for an MEG or EEG analysis is not trivial. A proper balance must be found between efficiency, ease-of-use and the specific analysis methods that one needs to use. Numerous open-source software packages allow carrying all classical analyses within a single environment. However, each package has its own area of expertise (e.g. source-space analysis, time-frequency analysis, multivariate decoding, multilevel statistics and so forth…) and a given study may require using several specific features available in different software. It is therefore often the case that complex pipelines need to be tailored to allow different parts of the analysis to be carried out in different software environments.


PracticalMEEG aims at providing an intensive three–day training to MEG and EEG analysts. It will provide its attendees with the ability to create a full analysis pipeline with exemplar (or their own) data in one or several of four leading software dedicated to MEG and EEG analysis (Brainstorm, FieldTrip, EEGLAB, and MNE-python). On demand, we hope to provide attendees with the opportunity to bridge across toolboxes and weave their own complex multi-software pipeline.


Students with any level of programming proficiency are welcome.

Preliminary Timetable


Bring your own laptop! We will provide power outlets, but no desktop computer will be available on the premises. Full instructions will be provided to install your environnement.

    • Install the toolbox(es) you want to use during the workshop.





    • Download the tutorial dataset (1.1 Gb). This is a customized version of the “Multisubject, multimodal face processing dataset” of Wakeman and Henson, including only one subject, one run, and with some extra enhancements.
