Welcome to the Documentation of SyNCoPy!

SyNCoPy (Systems Neuroscience Computing in Python, spelled Syncopy in the following) is a Python toolkit for user-friendly, large-scale electrophysiology data analysis. We strive to achieve the following goals:

  1. Syncopy provides a full open source Python environment for reproducible electrophysiology data analysis.

  2. Syncopy is scalable to accommodate very large datasets. It automatically makes use of available computing resources and is developed with built-in parallelism in mind.

  3. Syncopy is compatible with the MATLAB toolbox FieldTrip.
