Cartool EEG Software: Embracing Open Source – A 28-Year Code Legacy Unveiled


The Cartool EEG Software, in development since 1996, offers users cutting-edge, high-density EEG analysis toolboxes. Since its inception, a key focus has been placed on an intuitive user interface and user-friendly experience. We strongly believe that the ability to visualize and interact with diverse data types is essential for effective analysis.
In a significant development, Cartool is now being introduced as Free Open Source Software (FOSS), aligning with our dedication to advancing the principles of the Open Science movement. The upcoming presentation will provide insights into the capabilities of Cartool, its underlying methodologies, and the diverse packages that form its extensive toolkit.

About the speaker

Denis Brunet got a License in Computer Sciences in 1987 from the University of Geneva, then a Master in Computer Science in 1988 from Strasbourg University. He joined the Functional Brain Mapping Lab in 1996 to implement visual and auditory stimulations for EEG Evoked Responses.Shortly after, he started the project “Cartool”, aimed at rewriting existing analysis code, and developing new toolboxes.It now contain EEG signal processing, micro-states analysis, inverse solutions full pipe-line computation, MRI processing toolboxes.It also contains a lot of interactive visualization, a keypoint for proper scientific analysis. Cartool is distributed world-wide for free, and allows other labs to apply the latest research tools on their own data.
