[FieldTrip] ECG recording

Hello rajat,

To do the triangle, it's usually left wrist, right wrist and right leg. However in clinical studies, they use two electrodes: one underneath the right clavicle and the other roughly five centimetres below the left arm pit.

As for removing it from the signal, the ICA method is your best bet. However it will be difficult and I'm not 100% you'll be to find a pure ICA component that contains just ECG activity.

I hope I helped the slightest bit.

Dear FieldTrippers,

I have not been able to find a resource for ECG recording and removal in FieldTrip.

What is the best practise in terms of placing the electrodes (and how many) ? Left/Right


Also is there a standard pipeline to remove the ECG from these measurements?

Any pointers would be great.

Thank you.
