For an introduction to Eelbrain, see Introduction and the other Examples. For a tutorial on using Eelbrain for analyzing an experiment with temporal response function, see this preprint. For details of all the functionality see the API Reference.
On macOS, the GUI backend that Eelbrain uses when run from the command-line interpreter requires a special build of Python called a “Framework build”. Eelbrain installs a shortcut to start IPython with a Framework build:
This automatically launches IPython with the “eelbrain” profile. A default startup script that executes
from eelbrain import * is created, and can be changed in the corresponding IPython profile.
