Potential hobbies to develop this year

0

I have a white board in my office, and I listed a few hobbies that I wanted to cultivate and develop throughout this year. I realized that my researchers use their white board to sketch mind maps of ideas, so am transferring that list of potential interests to this on-line weblog:

– skateboarding
– exploring different cuisines
– photography
– walks
– listening to different kinds of music
– beatboxing
– free-rapping
– learning languages
– archery
– driving

Another note was to rewatch Escape from New York (1981) and Blade Runner (1982), which are among my most favorite movies.

EEG Basics by Dr. Jeremy Moeller

Yesterday, Monday March 13th, 2017, I enjoyed viewing these video clips by Dr. Jeremy Moeller:

Introduction to EEG: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XMizSSOejg0
6 Normal Awake EEG: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=17uKMFfTup
7 EEG in Normal Sleep: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4LcnZJ9L3rg
EEG Montages: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AcW97nMLGEs

The clips guide those new to EEG with fundamental concepts and topics related to EEG. I will be watching the remainder hopefully today.

Defining variables and plotting a linear regression line

1

Today I went through the following webpages. It was exciting to generate a scatter plot using the linear regression functions on MATLAB, and it was a good refresher to read about how to define variables, understanding the different data types, etc. Part of me feels like I should pick a question and go with it, instead of just reading about scripting.

Psychophysics Toolbox – Totally Minimal Demo

0

I took a hiatus from MATLAB, but am back. I recently asked for feedback on MATLAB’s forum which related to an issue with running the most basic code featured on Psychophysics Toolbox.

After I run the “Totally Minimal Demo,” the script does not return to the Finder screen even after having entered a key press. I have an internal and external (Bluetooth) keyboard, but the results are the same regardless of which keyboard is used. As a result, I have had to manually restart the computer (which is not frozen) because I cannot return to the Finder (i.e., MATLAB) interface.

A number of users on-line have been facing similar difficulties. I hope to be able to circumvent this issue because it is frustrating to have to restart my laptop each time to return to scripting.

FieldTrip and ERPLAB

I have also downloaded and installed FieldTrip and ERPLAB, both for MATLAB.

Yesterday I downloaded EEGLAB from the Swartz Center for Computational Neuroscience.

On the website above, there was a link to download sample EEG data from the Multimedia Signal Processing Group.

I also downloaded and installed SPM.
