I did this about a year ago- so I hope it still works.

1 You need the SciPy package installed.
Google for scipy- I'm sure you will find it.

2. from scipy import io
(you can import everything if you want, but the scipy package is
almost as massive as the python distribution :-) )

3.  myobject = io.loadmat(matlab_filename, None, 0)

I think myobject is a typical matlab matrix.
If you use PythonWin, you can do commandline completion on the
object, to look for attributes.

I dont use matlab, so I can't help you much further.

good luck
