Brainstorm is a free, open-source application dedicated to the analysis of brain data:
MEG, EEG, fNIRS, ECoG, depth and multiunit electrophysiology, all integrated with MRI/CT volumes.

Brainstorm features comprehensive user-friendly tools with an intuitive graphical interface, which does not require any programming knowledge. We also emphasize practical aspects of data analysis (e.g., with scripting for batch analysis and intuitive design of analysis pipelines) to promote research reproducibility and productivity. Brainstorm does not require a Matlab license: an executable version is available in the download package for all operating systems.

Since 2011, we have registered >27,000 user accounts and >1,500 published studies have used Brainstorm.

Extensive documentation is provided via online tutorials and user support via a forum. Consult our training pages for upcoming hands-on workshop opportunities!
