Cite Brainstorm in your publications
Once you are done with your analyses performed with Brainstorm, proper citation would be greatly appreciated; thank you!
How to cite...
Data analysis was performed with Brainstorm (Tadel et al. 2011), which is documented and freely available for download online under the GNU general public license (http://neuroimage.usc.edu/brainstorm).
... the CTF sample dataset (somatotopy)
The somatosensory MEG recordings were provided by Dr Sabine Meunier (Hopital de la Salpetriere, Paris) as part of the tutorial dataset distributed with Brainstorm (http://neuroimage.usc.edu/brainstorm).
