Hi Laura,

No, something exactly like that is not implemented. But if you look  
at the fieldtrip website (,  
under documentation, example matlab scripts, then you will see an  
example trial function that detects transitions in the EMG signal  
(i.e. start and end of muscle activity) and that defines trials in  
which there is muscle activity. Those trials are read in and can then  
further be analyzed. That script is the closest to what you describe  
that I can think of.

best regards,
Robert Oostenveld
