DOI: 10.1016/j.neuroimage.2018.01.035

[…] for electrophysiological data. these remain to be fully explored., the standard approach to address squid jumps in meg is to discard corrupted data (), and popular toolboxes such as fieldtrip () or brainstorm () offer tools to detect such jumps. discarding is not an option if the steps are dense on a majority of channels (e.g. ). in contrast, the method described here removes the steps […]

PMCID: 5904167
PMID: 29666461
DOI: 10.1038/s41598-018-24566-x

[…] summary of the number of participants and trials included in each analysis., source localization was conducted on averaged frn waveforms separately for each participant and each condition using the brainstorm software package. activations were calculated using the unconstrained sloreta method as implemented in brainstorm, based on electrode locations relative to a standard montreal neurological […]

PMID: 29615797
DOI: 10.1038/s41598-018-23765-w

[…] corrected for environmental noise using a calibrated linear weighting of 23 reference sensors (manufacturers algorithm, 4d neuroimaging, san diego, ca, usa). further processing was performed using brainstorm software. data were digitally filtered (1–100 hz, 50 hz notch). meg sensors and eeg electrode positions were coregistered to the icbm 152 standard head model and atlas– as individual mri […]
