On the topic of MATLAB learning materials (covered previously here and lots more MATLAB stuff here), MIT has some online courses freely available. Here’s an “aggressively gentle” intro to MATLAB, and some more MATLAB resources. (Hat tip to MH)
Also here’s a link from an older post on xcorr (Patrick Mineault’s excellent blog). This course webpage has a bunch of examples in MATLAB code. They’re great for simultaneously learning MATLAB and visual neuroscience.
