What component finder are you referring to? Is it the "envtopo()"
function, plotting the data envelope and the contribution of component
activities to this envelope? If yes, components are selected based on
how much of the variance of the average data components account for,
over the selected time window and assuming a mean of 0. You may also
select components based on the percentage of variance accounted for
(variance of data minus component compared to variance of data) in the
If there is a large ERP peak, components contributing most to the peak
will be selected (since the mean is assumed to be 0, the "variance" is
largest at the ERP peak).
