[FieldTrip] baseline correcting data with baseline coming from a different grandaverage

Dear Cecilia and Tom,
I am in a similar situation to the one described by Cecilia, so I thought of asking you for a suggestion.
I have a dataset locked to the onset of the cue, and I would like to use the same baseline I used in this dataset to baseline-correct also the same dataset locked to the onset of the target.
I tried the solution Tom suggested, but it is not working for me. The reason is that I preprocessed the cue-locked and target-locked datasets separately, therefore they end up having a slightly different number of trials. Do you have any idea of how this could be solved? Would it make sense to baseline-correct at the grandaverage level?
Another option I have been thinking about is to use ft_redefinetrial. In this case I have other problems, though. If I try to use the ft_redefinetrial function after preprocessing and cleaning my cue-locked dataset, it will output all the trials in the raw data (therefore not accounting for the trial rejection I performed on the cue-locked dataset). Is this the right way to use this function or am I missing something?
Thanks in advance for any input and sorry if my question is not very clear (still a newbie!)

I guess you could do that with a combination of 'ft_selectdata', and 'ft_math'.
Let's say you have datasets called 'stimlocked' and 'cuelocked'
You'd do something like:
% cut out baseline from cuelocked
cfg = ;
cfg.latency = [-0.5 0]; % or whatever your baseline window is
baseline = ft_selectdata(cfg, cuelocked);
% subtract baseline from stimlocked
cfg = ;
cfg.operation = 'subtract';
baseline_corrected_stimlocked = ft_math(cfg, stimlocked, baseline);
I think that ft_math allows you to input algebraic expressions too. So if you wanted to do, for example, a 'relchange' baseline correction you should substitute (something like)
cfg.operation = '(x1-x2)/x2';

I have some stimulus locked data which I have to baseline with respect to the same data but cue locked.
I was wondering whether there is a setting in fieldtrip which allows to do that (i.e. set the baseline timw window according to a different dataset, the cue-locked data) and applying it to the stimulus locked data.
Thanks in advance!
