  • OsiriX Plugins

    Plugins for OsiriX used for calculation of correct 10-20, 10-10 and 10-5 systems for EEG electrode placement. The StereotaxPoint plugin returns the stereotax coordinates of an ROI in OsiriX. The ViewTemplate plugin implemented the initial template based method for electrode placement. The TenTwenty plugin uses a more robust method that measures the skull in an MRI to generate stereotax coordinates for electrode placement. All plugins coded in Objective-C.

  • JPSTH Toolbox

    To investigate spike timing relationships between simultaneously recorded neurons, we wrote and optimized functions to perform joint peri-stimulus time histogram (JPSTH) analysis . This technique was originally developed by Aertsen et al (1989, J Neurophysiol 51: 900-17) and refined by Brody (1999, Neural Computation 11: 1127-35; 1999, Neural Computation 1537-51). Our code can be found here.
