redefinetrial_offset option

Hi Natalie,

may be I am missing something but the shift by 51 samples implied by

(-)6009 +(-51)

is always to the "left" as you call it - irrespective of the sign of "6009":

6009 +(-51) = 5958 < 6009 (left shift)

-6009 +(-51) = -6060 < -6009 (left shift)

Betreff: [FIELDTRIP] redefinetrial_offset option

>Hi all,
>         When inspecting in detail "redefinetrial" function I found a
>striking point, I think there is an error on the code that could
>be easily solved but maybe i'm missing something:
> My trials are of fixed length: they go from -3sec to +3sec with 1 trigger
>event as t=0. I want to realign the trials to a new (sub)event, so I
>defined offset as: Nxsamples relative to t=0. For each trial, offset has
>different signs as the event happened either before trigger event
>(-#samples) or after it (+#samples).
>In the code: when having for example -51 (samples relative to trigger)
>data.time is shifted to the left, and this would be correct. But when
>correcting "trial definition" this offset is summed to trl(:,3); the point
>is: my trl(:,3) is negative since is indicating  that the trial begins
>before the trigger, (-)6009 +(-51) results in shifting the offset of
>trigger to the right which is not the case: (possible solution:
>abs(trl(:,3))+(-51).). Then: trl(:,1),trl(:,2) correction is omitted, why?
>as "event" changed, shouldn't beg and ensample follow this change?
>sticking to +/-3sec defined as star/end of trial? In fact, data.time was
>shift. In the rest of the code i don't see any line related to this
>change.
> Any help will be welcome!
