NeuroExplorer® Version 5 is Available!

We are pleased to announce that NeuroExplorer version 5 is available. Version 5 adds several new analyses (find oscillations via Hilbert transform, firing phase analysis, waveform analysis and others), multi-taper spectral calculations,  statistical tests (t-tests, ANOVA) and immediate data preview. The new version is also faster and can handle multi-gigabyte data files (including HDF5 files). Macro recording allows a user to automate repetitive tasks.  Read more about new features or download version 5 demo.
