# Introduction to Matlab

Below you will find the schedule of our “Introduction to Matlab” lectures, held in the CBSU West Wing Seminar Room on Wednesdays, 11.00, between November 2013 and January 2014.

Matlab is the Swiss Army Knife of data analysis: no matter whether you are analysing neuroimaging data, behavioural data or your latest bank statements, Matlab can make you do things you thought were never possible.

Lectures will be combined with hands-on sessions. Space is limited, so it would be good if we had an idea of how many people we may have to accommodate. If you are interested, please drop me (Olaf Hauk) a line. We will also create Doodle polls for each session.

Our lectures are aimed at researchers with no or little prior experience to programming (in Matlab or otherwise). We are not intending to provide a full Matlab course, but we hope we can significantly facilitate the first few steps. For other options, see e.g. opportunities at Cambridge University (http://training.cam.ac.uk/ucs/), or on-line tutorials (http://imaging.mrc-cbu.cam.ac.uk/meg/Beginners).

Any suggestions of feedback on our previous lectures would be very welcome.

Except for the first lecture, all sessions will take place in the West Wing Seminar Room, on Wednesdays at 11am.
