Dear Alan,

you should probably start off with going through our tutorials:

And for you especially 

There are lots of different approaches for feature extraction or reduce 
feature space, but what works wors best for your data is something you 
have to test yourself. When you've read the tutorials you probably got a 
pretty got overview of what is possible in FieldTrip and that you can 
easily test what you asked for yourself without having others send you 
their code (you just have to replace a few keywords from the tutorial to 
test a different method). If you have more specific questions, feel free 
to ask again.
