MATLAB (Dr Dénes Szűcs)
Dr Dénes Szűcs runs an 8-hour intensive course entitled ‘Practical introduction to MATLAB Programming’. The course focuses on practical hands-on variable handling and programming implementation rather than on theory. This course is intended for those who have never programmed before including those who only call/run Matlab scripts but are not familiar with how code works and how matrices are handled in Matlab. (Note that calling a couple of scripts is not ‘real’ programming.)
Lecture slides about language fundamentals will be uploaded to Moodle before the sessions for study before sessions. During the live sessions we will reinforce and extend the material in the lecture slides and resolve questions.
It is essential that you download and install the latest version of Matlab on your own laptop before the sessions (see www.mathworks.com). Cambridge students can download and install Matlab from mathworks.com for free with their CRSid. Select and install all packages available to you. If you have pre-installed Matlab you can immediately try to write ‘live’ programme code. The best way to learn Matlab is to write and run code.
It is advisable that you skim through the excellent free resource Getting Started and Language Fundamentals
DETAILS TO BE UPDATED SHORTLY.
Introduction to Scientific Computing and Matlab
The CBU will be running a weekly Matlab course which will be extremely helpful to anyone planning on programming their experiments and analysing data in Matlab.
These sessions will combine theory, demos and hands-on practice, aimed at researchers with no or little prior experience in scientific computing and programming.
Workshops will take place in the WWSR on Wednesday at 14:30 for approximately 1.5 hours. Attendance does not require registration, everyone is welcome.

Statistical Methods for Cognitive Psychologists (Michaelmas 2021)
Level: This is a course planned with the needs in mind of a graduate student starting as a PhD student at the MRC Cognition and Brain Sciences.
Topic: POSTGRADUATE STATISTICS TALKS
Time: THURSDAYS 11AM 7TH OCTOBER TO 2ND DECEMBER 2021
Style: The presentation will be as fairly formal lectures, each aiming
- to outline a particular class of methods,
- to give examples of it being applied to realistic situations,
- to indicate how to implement it using software available at CBU.
Please log in using your university rather than personal e-mail.
