BUTIFtoolbox is used to extract transient oscillatory dynamics from signals. Until now, it was succesfully applied to LFP (Local Field Potentials) and EEG (Electroencephalographic) signals. Applications to other fields could be researched.

Until now, sparse time-frequency bump modelling was succesfully applied to model invasive EEG (local field potentials) event related potentials, to classify scalp EEG from patients with early stage of Alzheimer’s disease (AD), to represent simultaneously time-frequency and space information using a sonification approach, to exploit time-frequency space information using a synchrony model (Stochastic Event Synchrony, or SES), and to extract oscillations of steady state visual event potential epochs in single trials.
