[FieldTrip] converting eeglab to fieldtrip for time-frequency analysis

My name is Daniela Mejía and I am a student in the Cognitive Neuroimaging Lab at the University of Illinois. I have previously worked on time-frequency analysis of EEG data in EEGLAB and am currently trying to convert over to Fieldtrip for more advanced statistical testing.

I am aware of eeglab2fieldtrip and tried my best to write code based on previous mailinglist answers but I'm still not sure if I'm defining ft_preprocessing and/or ft_definetrials correctly.

My code and a sample dataset can be found here: https://uofi.box.com/s/cxbuqqhp065wenpzw1bxasr5vpcdvlms

also here's the gist of it:

%define trial
 cfg = [];
 cfg.dataset            = '/Users/Daniela/Desktop/aim_set/TF/aim345_ep_ad3rej.set';
 cfg.trialdef.eventtype = 'trigger';
 cfg.trialdef.eventvalue = {'B1(1)','B2(2)','B3(3)','B4(4)'};
 cfg = ft_definetrial(cfg);

% preprocess the data
data = eeglab2fieldtrip(EEG,'preprocessing','none');

cfg_pre.baselinewindow ='all'; % or [begin end]
cfg_pre.trials = 'all';


%add a trial configuration to make sure fieldtrip
%doesn't think the data are really continuous
for a=1:n_trials,
    data.cfg.trl(a,:)=[1 n_tpts tpt0_id a]; %"a" just tells you what EEG.epoch the trial corresponds to. It isn't used for anything now.
    %get rid of possible time numerical error; milliseconds is the
    %lowest resolution we should ever need


The find_tpt function is based on this: http://kutaslab.ucsd.edu/matlabmk_fn_docs/matlabmk/find_tpt.html

Any suggestions on what I am doing wrong would be greatly appreciated! Thank you.
