Dear Erdost,

I agree as well with Eelke. In particular, apart from some methods (e.g. 
source reconstruction), there is no explicit assumption made about the 
origin of the data. While the algorithms are per se suited for any type 
of data, the options might be specific for your data. So, e.g. be sure 
to not demean or detrend your data when preprocessing (check what the 
defaults are for each function!).

If would be great to let us all know if you publish your results in a 
particular scientific journal.

Best of luck&success,
