[FieldTrip] Covaraince matrix for MEG resting state

Hi all
I am using the resting state MEG signal for constructing the inverse
problem by eLoreta, and as it is resting state, the covariance matrix needs
to be used, so I am going to use HCP R-noise to construct the covariance
matrix, but there are two main issues which I need your help. 1- as I am
going to use preprocess data for resting state, do I need process the noise
as well? if it is so, I can't find the time series of the noise in the raw
data after using ft_read_header. 2- do I need to redefine the time series
which add the noise time series at the beginning of the signal and then add
the resting state time series so I can use the below code for computing the

cfg= []

  cfg.covariance = 'yes'; % I dont know how to enter the noise
covariance to the data

cfg.covariancewindow = [-inf 0];
  timelockanalysis = ft_timelockanalysis(cfg, inputdata);

I look forward to hearing from you.
