Dear Arno and Eelke,

Thanks for the information. I also received the following code suggestion from J.Obleser in house

cfg.runica.pca  =rank(your_number_of_channels)

which I am trying out right now.

Cheers,
Ellie

Dear fieldtrip community,

 

In LCMV beamforming there is an option cfg.lcmv.subspace=X. Does anyone have experience or recommendations regarding this option? Is there a publication in which the rationale is described? From looking at the code it seems that data and lead field are projected onto a subspace spanned by the first X singular vectors of the covariance matrix (correct me if I'm wrong). Seems helpful in my case but I am hesitant to use it without knowing anything about it.

 

Thanks for any comment!

Jan

Hi Jan,

You can look up the rationale in the work of Kensuke Sekihara. Look for 'eigenspace beamformer'. The implementation in FieldTrip is along these lines (but slightly differently implemented).

Best wishes,

Jan-Mathijs

Hi Qi,

I'm not sure if this is what you are looking for but take a look at the
--morph option to mne_setup_source_space. It should let you create
corresponding source grids in each of your subjects.

Hi J?rn,

Thanks a lot! This link is very helpful for my question.

Actually, I followed the tutorial of source reconstruction of event-related
fields using MNE which clearly states 'recon-all -surfreg -subjid Subject01'
this already co-registered the original surface to the standard atlas
sphere. So for each individual, their cortical surfaces are aligned at this
step. The confusion is when down-sampling by using 'mne_setup_source_space
--ico -6', what is exactly done(algorithm) to down-sample from 20,000 nodes
to only 8196?
This might be crucial for a group analysis so I seek a clarification.

Thanks!

Qi

Dear Fieldtrip community,

I intend to run ICA on an EEG dataset with 64 channels (+ 2 eye channels), on epochs which are about 4 seconds long, and I am unsure as to how many independent components I should define (20,65,..?).

My question is, is there a 'rule of thumb' for defining how many independent components to analyze for EEG? In the archives I have found only references to MEG datasets with many channels, for example reducing over 200 channels to 80 components. Looking in the literature today I also wasn't able to interpret an answer.

If anyone has any information, references, or other input I would be much obliged.

Thanks,
Ellie

Thank you very much to both of you!

I will use Stephen's suggestion. It fits better with my situation!

All the best!
