[FieldTrip] ft_preprocessing high-pass filtering question

hi aaron,
filtering is generally applied after the data have been epoched. to avoid the filter artifacts you are speaking about, we normally define epochs that are sufficiently larger so that these artifacts would be in data we are not interested in. about 1s at both ends of the epoch should be enough in most cases. but you better check... later you can use ft_redefinetrial to discard that extra data.
hope this helps.
