[FieldTrip] Importing .ses files

the most straightforward way to read NeurOne data in Fieldtrip is to export
them in .eeg format from NeurOne itself. If I remember well you can do that
going to results, choosing the dataset you want to export and then the
option "Export Brain Products" (or something like this, I cannot check it
right now, but you should find it easily). The .eeg format is supported by
Fieldtrip and everything should work smoothly
Hope this help :)
Good luck with your research
