MORE THAN 100 FUNCTIONS
g.BSanalyze’s graphical user interface includes more than 100 state-of-the art functions for defining electrode montages, spatial or temporal filter designs, artifact treatment, quality control, spectral analysis, coherence, correlation, bandpower analysis, ERD/ERS analyses, EP analyses, visualization, data set classification, and other goals. It is the only package that supports all BCI principles: P300, SSVEP/SSSEP, cVEP, motor imagery and slow cortical potentials. You can load and save your preferred processing steps within a script program and automatically process your data in g.BSanalyze batch mode.
ALL YOU NEED FOR BIOSIGNAL ANALYSIS
g.BSanalyze’s processing capabilities allow you to extract relevant features from your multimodal data and define useful parameters for post-processing. Use these parameters directly with g.BSanalyze’s classification tools to assign distinct classes to your data with linear and non-linear classifiers. The combination of the graphical user interface and the programming environment makes g.BSanalyze a truly unique package for biosignal analyses. The standalone version of g.BSanalyze can run without a MATLAB installation, but batch processing in the MATLAB command window is not possible.
