This seminar series provides an introduction to the MATLAB software package for research students who have little or no experience of computer programming. The course is comprised of two main components: a general introduction to MATLAB and the basics of computer programming; and the design and implementation of standard cognitive neuroscience experiments using the Cogent toolbox. In addition, several practical MATLAB sessions will be held, where students are set specific programming tasks to complete with help from the course lecturers. Tutorial scripts, sample data sets and slides will be available on the course website to allow students to apply the methods discussed between seminars.
