Wave Surfer

Sep 16, 2016

WaveSurfer is an open-source application for neurophysiology data acquisition and analysis. The program is based in MatLab, and evolved from an earlier open-source software package called Ephus. WaveSurfer is currently pre-release, but can be downloaded from the WaveSurfer Webpage or the WaveSurfer GitHub Repository.

The project was initiated by the Svoboda Lab, and developed as a collaborative effort between several research groups at the Howard Hughes Medical Institute’s Janelia Research Campus. Janelia is a major proponent of collaboration and open-science, providing documentation for dozens of tools and innovations developed on their campus through their webpage, including several tools specific to behavioral neuroscience research.
