RAVE logo Reproducible Analysis and Visualization of iEEG


Reproducible Analysis and Visualization of intracranial EEG (RAVE) is free and open-source software for the analysis of intracranial electroencephalogram (iEEG) data, including data collected using strips and grids (electrocorticography, ECoG) and depth electrodes (stereotactic EEG). A sister package to RAVE is the YAEL electrode localization toolkit.

Latest updates Great new feature in the 3D Viewer: Mesh outline shader for enhanced visualization of cortical landmarks together with sEEG electrodes and subcortical structures.

RAVE is easy to use and creates publication-ready figures with absolutely no programming. RAVE can import standard data formats, including Matlab and EDF, and is compatible with BIDS-iEEG. It runs on laptops, lab servers, or in the cloud. Since all user interactions take place through a web browser, the user experience is identical on Mac, Windows and Linux. Data from RAVE can be exported for analysis using other software (click here for a list of iEEG analysis tools). Conversely, outside results can be imported and visualized using RAVE's visualization engine. RAVE provides templates to make it easy to create GUI-based analyses using the streamlined application programming interface. Click here to install RAVE.
