You can use ft_appenddata to merge dataset with different channels; for example MEG data, EEG data, and extra channels:
%% Append all data
cfg = [];
preprocessed_data = ft_appenddata(cfg, preprocessed_data_MEG, preprocessed_data_EEG, preprocessed_data_ExG);

If they all have the same sample info FieldTrip will know to append them as different channels on the same trial.

Best regards

Does anyone know how to use fieldtrip to merge two separate files (mag, grad) back into one?
I did grad and mag separately and saved them separately when I was doing ICA.
But now I want to do source positioning, and I want to use all channels together for source positioning, how do I merge grad and mag back into one folder?

Can I just merge the Matlab structure of grad and mag files? Will some information be lost this way?

This is my previous code

%% magnetometers ICA
cfg=[]; cfg.channel={'MEG*1'};
save(['sub2019' subjectID{x} '_origmag.mat'],'data_orig', '-v7.3');

%% planar gradiometers ICA
cfg=[]; cfg.channel={'MEG*2','MEG*3'};
save(['sub2019' subjectID{x} '_origgrad.mat'],'data_orig', '-v7.3');

I searched a previous question, but I didn't find in it exactly how to do this, and I also searched the fieldtrip GitHub site, but I didn't find the relevant statements either.


I was wondering if you could help me with this?

Thank you for your time and I look forward to hearing from you soon!

Best regards,
Hasi Bagen
