Do not notch filter your data! This can be very bad for later VAR modeling -- and IMO bad in general. You can use an adaptive spectral regression method such as that in the Cleanline plugin for eeglab to remove line noise.

See Barnett and Seth 2011 and Mitra and Pesaran 1999 for theoretical discussions. 

Rob, there is no video of the SIFT workshop but the lecture pdfs are online at the eeglab workshop page.

Dear Vito,
in general, the 50Hz frequency can be removed by means of a Notch filter
 in the pre-processing stage. Matlab easily implement such a filter!

Dear Vito,

>However let me tell you this that Tim Mullen (the author of SIFT) told us in the past EEGLAB workshop that we should not use ANY filter for SIFT. If you want to remove low-frequency drifts etc... he recommended the detrend option supported in SIFT. For low-pass filter, he said don't use it. Also make sure that you use double precision, not signle precision; chec
