Thank you all for the insight!
I see great utility in the Gross 2009 paper and have contacted the senior author for a usable version of the matlab code (both manual Sleep-Scorer and the Auto-Scorer). If I get a reply and a link, I'll test it out using some of the prestaged edfs/xmls. I have seen some patent hits on this software with those authors so it may not be freely available for research.
I'm a new visitor to the National Sleep Research Resource and wanted to say that the site is fantastically intuitive particularly for a student such as myself!
I am interested in performing manual and then automated sleep staging. I have successfully viewed a test edf file in the SignalRasterView app and then did the same in EDFViewer. Now, I would like to implement staging on test edfs.
Is there a matlab tool you recommend for both manual and automated staging/event stamping (with requisite xml annotation compatibility)? I'd be particularly interested in a tool that has built in functions for assessing sleep measurables. Furthermore it would be great if the tool had signal processing capabilities to assess staged epochs (without me needing to modify data struc in order to run matlab sigprocfunctions).
As a new user I greatly appreciate the emphasis placed on ease of use.
