MEG and EEG data analysis with MNE-Python

TLDR
MNE-Python is an open-source software package that addresses this challenge by providing state-of-the-art algorithms implemented in Python that cover multiple methods of data preprocessing, source localization, statistical analysis, and estimation of functional connectivity between distributed brain regions.

Development of an analysis pipeline for magnetoencephalography measurement data using the MNE software package

TLDR
A pipeline for MEG data analysis with focus on preprocessing of measurement data and analysis on sensor level (studying the magnetic fields rather than the computed neuronal activity) was developed using the MNE software package and optimized for analyzing event related fields from somatosensory stimuli.

MNE: Software for Acquiring, Processing, and Visualizing MEG/EEG Data

TLDR
The landscape of the MNE project is presented and how it will evolve to address the current and emerging needs of the the MEG/EEG community is discussed.

Mind the Noise Covariance When Localizing Brain Sources with M/EEG

TLDR
Three distinct source localization methods are investigated: dynamic Statistical Parametric Maps (dSPM), the linearly constrained minimum variance (LCMV) beam former and Mixed-Norm Estimates (MxNE), and automated strategies for improving the quality of covariance estimates at different stages of data processing.

DISTRIBUTED SOURCE LOCALIZATION FROM EEG / MEG DATA

TLDR
This work presents a system that, according to its modular scheme, can be configured in a very flexible way using graphical building blocks and different preprocessing algorithms together with a linear source reconstruction method can be used for online analysis.

A Review of Issues Related to Data Acquisition and Analysis in EEG/MEG Studies

TLDR
Issues in data acquisition and analysis of EEG and MEG data are discussed and the increase in methodological complexity in EEG/MEG is discussed, which is important to gather data that are of high quality and that are as artifact free as possible.

ONLINE DISTRIBUTED SOURCE LOCALIZATION FROM EEG/MEG DATA

TLDR
This work presents a system that, according to its modular scheme, can be configured in a very flexible way using graphical building blocks and different preprocessing algorithms together with a linear source reconstruction method can be used for online analysis.

EEGNET: An Open Source Tool for Analyzing and Visualizing M/EEG Connectome

TLDR

Source-Space Analyses in MEG/EEG and Applications to Explore Spatio-temporal Neural Dynamics in Human Vision

TLDR
Novel one-step methods of regression or connectivity analysis in the source space are presented, where the dependence of source activities on the external covariates or the cross-region dependence is explicitly modeled, jointly with the source-to-sensor linear transformation.

A Reproducible MEG/EEG Group Study With the MNE Software: Recommendations, Quality Assessments, and Good Practices

TLDR
This work presents the results obtained by the reanalysis of an open dataset from Wakeman and Henson (2015) using the MNE software package, and aims to provide a comparative study of different stages of M/EEG analysis pipeline on the same dataset.

Investigating the electrophysiological basis of resting state networks using magnetoencephalography

TLDR
This paper describes a means to characterize resting state brain networks independently using magnetoencephalography (MEG), a neuroimaging modality that bypasses the hemodynamic response and measures the magnetic fields associated with electrophysiological brain activity, and results in RSNs with significant similarity in their spatial structure compared with R SNs derived independently using fMRI.

Mixed-norm estimates for the M/EEG inverse problem using accelerated gradient methods.

TLDR
In order to efficiently solve the optimization problems of MxNE, fast first-order iterative schemes that for the ℓ₁/ℓ ₂ norm give solutions in a few seconds are introduced making such a prior as convenient as the simple MNE.
