[FieldTrip] source analysis: common filter

Hi Hanneke, If my understanding is correct, you cannot use common filters over all sessions, exactly because of the reason you mention (different spatial relation between sensors and the head/brain). Using common filters within a session is ok of course (to look at effect of condition on a source's activity). What you could do as an alternative is compute virtual sensor time courses for the source-of-interest, separately for both sessions, and subsequently append these (source-level) data afterwards (and then your contrasts/statistics). Hope this helps.
