This Talk -- David Groppe, postdoctoral researcher in UCSD's Kutaslab, introduces two resampling-based statistical methods (permutation tests and bootstrapping) and two methods for multiple-comparison correction (permutation-based control of the family-wise error rate and false discovery rate control) useful for EEG analysis.

Chapter 1: Brief review of popular parametric and nonparametric analytic statistical methods (e.g., t-tests, Mann-Whitney U test).
