Though there are many tools for the analysis of clinical data, the search for explanations of brain mechanisms and treatments relay ever more on the notions of causality and mediation. We explain briefly these concepts and the challenges of analyzing high-dimensional EEG datasets. The participants will get an insight into what types of relevant questions they may ask with Open Electrophysiology and will understand some examples of datasets to be used in the lecture on software tools for this purpose. The participants will understand how to use modern statistical methods to select biomarkers.
