Brainstorm: a user-friendly application for MEG/EEG analysis.

Tadel F, Baillet S, Mosher JC, Pantazis D, Leahy RM - Comput Intell Neurosci (2011)

Bottom Line: Brainstorm is a collaborative open-source application dedicated to magnetoencephalography (MEG) and electroencephalography (EEG) data visualization and processing, with an emphasis on cortical source estimation techniques and their integration with anatomical magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) data.The primary objective of the software is to connect MEG/EEG neuroscience investigators with both the best-established and cutting-edge methods through a simple and intuitive graphical user interface (GUI).

fig8: Interactive selection of the best-fitting sphere model parameter for MEG and EEG forward modeling.

Mentions: Over the past ten years, multiple approaches to forward modeling have been prototyped, implemented, and tested in Brainstorm. The ones featured in the software today offer the best compromise between robustness (adaptability to any specific case) and accuracy (precision of the results). Other techniques will be added in the future. Current models include the single sphere and overlapping spheres methods for MEG [2] and Berg's three-layer sphere model for EEG [40]. For the single sphere methods, an interactive interface helps the user refine—after automatic estimation—the parameters of the sphere(s) that best fits the subject's head (Figure 8).
