Hi Beth,

are ou sure the buffer.mexw64 is located in your path? You can check by 
typing "which buffer" in the matlab command window. If so, then you can 
try to re-mex the file yourself (or redownload Fieldtrip, maybe the file 
was just corrupted in your copy?). Mexing the file in a matlab 64bit 
environment is a bit cumbersome, as you need to install some external 
compiler. For more information, please see here:
and here:

After downloading and installer the compiler, you need to locate the 
buffer.c file (probably in the fieldtrip/src directory) and then type 
"mex buffer.c" in the matlab command window. Hope you can take it from 
here ;)
