  • FeatureFinder: A free tool for visual review, filtering, and feature extraction

    Hello!

    At the SMART lab (Ryerson University, Toronto, Canada), we've recently completed a software package for the processing and feature extraction of psychophysiological data, and we'd like to share it with other researchers. It's called FeatureFinder, it's free, and you can find the program and all you need to know at www.featurefinder.ca.

    The background on this project is that we found ourselves not fully content with the flexibility of commercial packages, so were writing custom scripts for each experiment time and time (and time) again. We built FeatureFinder to combine the advantages of the commercial and coding approaches (usability and customizability) with a novel approach to file management, and many readers and contributors here may find it quite useful too.

    Here's a summary of the program's features:
    - You can enter your data in moments, whether there are dozens or thousands of files
    - Visually reviewing data files is quick and easy—you can move from one plot to the next using scroll buttons, or a set of drop-down menus for each parameter in your experiment (e.g., participant #, trial)
    - High-pass, low-pass, and notch filters are available to filter data (with customizable order and cut-off frequency)
    - Signal features can be extracted with the click of a button, and are saved in a ready-to-analyze table format
    - If you're comfortable with basic MATLAB coding, you can easily add custom features to FeatureFinder (http://www.featurefinder.ca/document...tion-features/)

    Also, it's a constantly developing tool, so we regularly make improvements and release new versions—and we're certainly keen to hear from users about functions they'd like to see. Take a look at www.featurefinder.ca and feel free to post any questions/comments, or send them to us directly at info@featurefinder.ca.

    Thanks for reading,

    Alexander J. Andrews

    Hello again,

    Since posting, we've received a great deal of interest in FeatureFinder. We've followed it up with a brand new version (posted about here on the Products and Services page), with added functionality, bug fixes, and more. We encourage all current users to upgrade. You can learn more about it and download the program (for free) at www.featurefinder.ca.

    Best regards,

    Alex
