Course Syllabus

Abstract

Research Seminar "Cognitive Sciences" (2nd year) is dedicated to advanced data analysis of neurophysiological data and provides the understanding of algorithmic pipelines routinely used in the analysis of EEG and MEG data. Given the quick development of analysis tools, it is always challenging to fully comprehend the machinery hidden behind the typical button-press toolbox packages. Instead of approaching data analysis packages as a “black box”, at the end of the course the students will be able to fully comprehend the meaning of their choices while setting options in their data analysis workflow. During this course, we will go through the details of data acquisition, data processing and step by step implementation of most advanced data analysis pipeline and the understanding of the main parameters involved. After quickly reviewing the physical principles of signal acquisition and introducing some mathematical tools, the course dives into the main topics of time-frequency analysis, source reconstruction, functional connectivity and statistical analysis. The course provides the students with the basic theory of neurophysiological data analysis which is useful not only in neuroscience and cognitive sciences but also in other scientific areas using similar mathematical framework.
