Thanks again Andrew.
As for the 1hz filter, my study is a lean mean P1 isolating machine. I am
relying on this paper that found that N70-P100 amplitude was only very
slightly attenuated by a 1hz filter and only became very seriously
attenuated as it approached 8hz.

that it seems to contaminate most or all of the data for this person should
I just throw it out or can I get something out of it? In particular how
will ICA handle it? Do I still have a chance of getting a stable
decomposition out of it with a reliably identifiable P1? This person was
particularly bad but there are less drastic examples in several of my other
participants. Keep in mind some of my participants are rather rare and
would be difficult to replace (I study sexual orientation and some
varieties are less common than others).

Heterosexuality isn't normal, it's just common.
