According to the original reference, these "artifacts" (although it
could also be potentially interesting to study them) mostly arise with
nose reference data. Also, they occur very early after the stimulus
presentation and any type of gamma effect found after 200 ms could not
be attributed to them. There is a comment/response by P. Fries in
Neuron too about this paper showing some genuine gamma in both MEG and
EEG scalp recording.
As far as the number of cycle go, I am only reporting what I know
about the literature. I agree with you that it is not because it is in
the literature that it is necessarily optimal.
