Bug#659282: ITP: eeglab -- electrophysiological data analysis

Package: wnpp
Severity: wishlist
Owner: Michael Hanke <mih@debian.org>

* Package name    : eeglab
  Version         :
  Upstream Author : Scott Makeig, Arnaud Delorme and others
* URL             : http://sccn.ucsd.edu/eeglab
* License         : GPL-2+
  Programming Lang: Matlab (Octave)
  Description     : electrophysiological data analysis

 This is sofwware for processing continuous or event-related EEG or other
 physiological data. It is designed for use by both novice and expert
 users. In normal use, the EEGLAB graphic interface calls graphic functions
 via pop-up function windows. The EEGLAB history mechanism can save the
 resulting calls to disk for later incorporation into scripts.
 This package provides EEGLAB to be used with Matlab. Note that this package
 depends on Matlab -- a commercial software that needs to be obtained and
 installed separately.


At this point this package basically only works with Matlab (hence
aiming at contrib). However, there is hope to enable an interesting
subset of non-GUI functionality to work with Octave. Upstream provides
a substantial unittest suite to help such an effort.

Until this can be achieved, this package, at least, strengthens Debian's
utility for electrophysiological data analysis, as eeglab is one of the
most popular tools in this field.

A number of source-less extensions from 3rd parties have been stripped
for DFSG-compliance.
