When converting Nicolet format to EDF format, patient information may still be kept in the header. Only anonymized data can be shared outside NYUMC.

MATLAB scripts to anonymize EDF are available here: edf_anon.zip


To run the script:

  1. uncompress edf_anon.zip
  2. add edf_anon folder into MATLAB path or change MATLAB working directory to edf_anon after starting MATLAB
  3. run edf_anonymize.m
  4. select the EDF file need to anonymize
  5. anonymized file will overwrite the original file
  6. done!
