This tutorial walks participants through the application of dynamic causal modelling (DCM) to fMRI data using MATLAB. Participants are also shown various forms of DCM, how to generate and specify different models, and how to fit them to simulated neural and BOLD data.
This lesson corresponds to slides 158-187 of the PDF below.
This tutorial demonstrates how to work with neuronal data using MATLAB, including actional potentials and spike counts, orientation tuing curves in visual cortex, and spatial maps of firing rates.
In this lesson, users will learn how to appropriately sort and bin neural spikes, allowing for the generation of a common and powerful visualization tool in neuroscience, the histogram.
In this lesson, users will learn about human brain signals as measured by electroencephalography (EEG), as well as associated neural signatures such as steady state visually evoked potentials (SSVEPs) and alpha oscillations.
This tutorial builds on the previous lesson's demonstration of spectral analysis of one EEG channel. Here, users will learn how to compute and visualize spectral power from all EEG channels using MATLAB.
In this lesson, users will learn more about the steady-state visually evoked potential (SSEVP), as well as how to create and interpret topographical maps derived from such studies.
In the final lesson of this module, users will learn how to correlate endogenous alpha power with SSVEP amplitude from EEG data using MATLAB.
This lesson provides an introduction to biologically detailed computational modelling of neural dynamics, including neuron membrane potential simulation and F-I curves.
This lesson introduces users to MATLAB live scripts; interactive documents that combine MATLAB code with formatted text, equations, and images in a single environment.
In this lesson, users learn about the practical differences between MATLAB scripts and functions, as well as how to embed their neuronal simulation into a callable function.
This lesson teaches users how to generate a frequency-current (F-I) curve, which describes the function that relates the net synaptic current (I) flowing into a neuron to its firing rate (F).
