JASP - Open-source project for Data Analysis resulting in Fast Conclusions with Minimal Work

JASP is an open-source project supported by the University of Amsterdam with an intuitive interface offering standard data analysis in classical or bayesian form.

JASP was designed with the user in mind: APA-formatted tables can be copy-pasted in your word processor, output can be extensively annotated, adjustment of input options dynamically changes the output, and selecting old output revives the associated input choices for inspection and adjustment.

JASP is open-source and free of charge, and we provide it as a service to the community. JASP is also statistically inclusive, as it offers both frequentist and Bayesian analysis methods. Indeed, the primary motivation for JASP is to make it easier for statistical practitioners to conduct Bayesian analyses.

OpenVibe - One of the Best BCI Software

OpenViBE is a free software platform dedicated to design, process and classify EEG data to be used in brain-computer interfaces. The package includes some tools to create and run custom applications (drag & drop), it is compatible with many EEG devices and demo programs are ready for use. Programming in Python is also possible.

OpenVibe is, in my opinion, one of the best software platform in BCIs so, if you want to learn how to use it, the tutorial from MENSIA enterprise is the best way to start. 

OpenViBE Consortium is the future management and funding structure for OpenViBE. Interested parties can join the consortium as members or donate to it. The consortium will be a non-profit that uses its funds to hire dedicated engineers. The engineers in turn develop the platform to directions that are of interest to the consortium members.

Open-Source Python Code for BCI/EEG

Visbrain is an open-source python 3 package dedicated to brain signals visualization. It is based on top of VisPy and PyQt and is distributed under the 3-Clause BSD license.

Visbrain includes six visualization modules :
  • Brain : visualize EEG/MEG/Intracranial data, connectivity in a standard MNI 3D brain 
  • Sleep : visualize polysomnographic data and hypnogram edition 
  • Signal : data-mining module for time-series inspection 
  • Topo : display topographical maps
