Inter Subject Correlation in EEG
This is matlab code to compute intersubject correlation (ISC) in EEG
using correlated component analysis,
as described in the references below
(description closest to the present code is in
Cohen and Parra, 2016
isceeg.m -- EEG specific code, keeping clutter to a minimum.
You will need these files to run this code:
topoplot.m -- stand-alone version of EEGlab's popular display function (does not require EEGlab).
BioSemi64.loc -- BioSemi location file for topoplot
notBoxPlot.m -- stand-alone version of Rob Campbell's scatter plot (does not require suplementary functions)
EEGVolume.mat -- Samantha Cohen's EEG data with 64 electrodes from 18 subjects while watching this video. (Here's a list of all stimuli).
Other useful code:
are all of the audiovisual (AV), audiovisual scrambled (AVsc), and audio only (A Only) videos used in
Cohen and Parra (2016)
(The visual only (V Only) stimuli from this paper are identical to the audiovisual stimuli except they are played silently.)
More efficient code to perform Correlated Component Analysis (the core of the analysis method we have used to measures ISC in EEG) is now available here:
