This course will focus on teaching data analysis to graduate students, with an emphasis on problem sets from the visual, cognitive, neurosciences. Students with a variety of computer backgrounds are welcome, and all analyses will be performed in the powerful MATLAB technical computing language. After learning the fundamentals of MATLAB and its impressive graphical capabilities, several toolboxes will be taught including Image Processing, Optimization, SPM (Statistical Processing Mapping for neuroimaging) Signal Processing, and Statistics. An additional unit will emphasize conducting psychophysical experiments with the aid of the Psychophysics toolbox. The majority of the data analysis problems to be solved will be designed around the specific interests of the students.
