[FieldTrip] neuromag BESA compatibility

Hi Lithari,


There are two possibilities to export artifact corrected data to FieldTrip. 

If you have BESA 5.3 then you can use the Matlab interface and send the 

Data directly to Matlab with the "Send to Matlab" command. If you have

BESA 5.2 or earlier then you can export the corrected data as an ascii file

(vectorized or multiplex) and then use the besa2fieldtrip readers, which 

are available in FieldTrip or on the BESA webpage.


Best regards,

Hi to all,


I have a question. I have used BESA to do the artifact rejection on my meg
data, but I want to pass to Fieltrip. 

Does anybody know if while opening the .fif file, the rejected channels and
trials will be rejected also by Fieldtrip or not?

In other words, do I have to do the artifact rejection again in Fieldtrip?


Thanks a lot for your time and response,
