Many of our studies are based on information-theoretic analyses. Recent studies use Copula Methods developped by Robin Ince available here. Previously we relied on the ibtb toolbox for Matlab. Pyentropy is also an efficient Python package.
The matlab code for the auditory saliency map, as well as some example sounds and data are available here.
See "Mechanisms for allocating auditory attention: An auditory saliency map." Kayser C et al Current Biology 15(21), 1943-1947, 2005, for details.
You can download the sequence of natural sounds used for our unit recordings and EEG studies here.

The video sequences used to analyse statistical regularities of natural scenes are available upon request. A short video segment can be found here.
