Unitret software is a versatile package for neurophysiological data analysis. It is written mostly in MATLAB (with addition of several compiled *.exe and *.dll binaries). Older versions were compatible with MATLAB versions 4.x and 5.x, but recent versions run under MATLAB 5.x and 6.x only (4.x is no longer supported).
