Hi Sameer,

To start with your last question:

The problem you mention is probably due to the fact, that createlayout is
inside the private-folder. M-files which are located within the folder which
contains the private-folder, have access to the functions which are private.
However, private functions cannot be accessed from the command-line. You
might try copying createlayout to a location which is on your matlab-path
and retry the command.

Identifying the artifactual components can be done in a variety of ways:
1 you can plot the spatial topography, as specified in comp.comp. Artifacts
often have a typical topography.
2 if you recorded an ECG-channel you can compute a QRS-complex triggered
average, to identify those components being ECG-like. (Or similarly, you can
compute coherence between the external ECG and your components).
3 eye-movements and muscle artifacts betray themselves by their spatial
topography and time course.
