MATLAB (Matrix Laboratory) ---
The computational environment we should be universally expecting to learn and use.
Basic Matlab:
(a) The Mother of all calculators --- where everything can be done with matrices
(b) Programming language --- very powerful and much easier than, for example, C or Fortran (no array dimensioning)
(c) Graphical User Interface Development Environment (GUIDE) --- do your own data collection GUIs or demonstrations
(d) Provides great graphics --- plotting, visualization, animation, image processing
(e) Application Program Interface (API) --- for calling C, Fortran, JAVA routines within the Matlab environment

Toolboxes (collection of m-files to do analyses within some specific area, and where typically the source code in the m-files is available for modification)
Commercial (though the Mathworks or third-parties) Toolboxes ---
Statistics; Optimization; Image Processing; Neural Networks; Curve Fitting; Splines; Wavelets; Symbolic Math; Bioinformatics; Genetic Algorithm and Direct Search; Mapping (Geographical);
Compiler (m-files direct to C or C++ code)
\begin{slide}
Free (open sources) Toolboxes ---
www.mathworks.com/matlabcentral/ --- 1000 m-files contributed by users
www.mathtools.net/MATLAB/toolboxes.html
Auditory Perception; ILAB (eye movement analyses); Brainstorm (MEG/EEG); Chemometrics; N-way Toolbox; Smoothing; Econometrics; Spatial Statistics; NURBS; ICA (EEG/ERP -- independent component analysis); LYNGBY (fMRI analyses); NIH CORTEX; NMRLAB; Psychophysics; Speech Processing; EMEGS (for EEG and MEG)

The Structural Representation of Proximity Matrices With MATLAB ---
This is the Combinatorial Data Analysis (CDA) Toolbox I'm working on
and is available at (my office on the fourth floor):
http://cda.psych.uiuc.edu/srpm\_mfiles ---
all the m-files I've written for the toolbox
all the *.dat files for the data analysis examples
plus the (draft) manual ---
cda\_toolbox\_manual\_rev1.pdf
