A Hands-on Approach to Neural Connectivity Inference Methods

 

Abstract

The objective of the workshop is provide a hands-on learning opportunity for using parts of the software distributed as part of the book ‘‘Methods in Brain Connectivity Inference through Multivariate Time Series Analysis’ (2014) by CRC which we co-edited. In addition to examining in detail conceptual aspects associated to connectivity we intend to shorten the learning curve of potential users of connectivity analysis software in regard to inferential aspects and the possible caveats and pitfalls the user may encounter. Attendees who bring their own laptops will have the opportunity to process workshop examples and their own data and will benefit from discussing their results and modelling diagnostics with the workshop experts. Attendee provided Matlab/Octave licenses are required for those wishing to take part in the practical activities. Attendees are encouraged to bring data of their own which they will have the opportunity to process in the afternoon using laptops they bring.
