Dear all,

I agree with Andreas, eegfilt is deprecated. 
Yes, Tim, the Anil's filter uses the same criteria but I your cleanline has more options.

About SIFT, comparing it with Anil Seth's Granger toolbox it seems that in SIFT are missing a few things (probably I don't know very good SIFT):

1) In SIFT there is only the Spectral Granger Analysis, there is not the temporal Granger Analysis. Is this correct?
2) In SIFT there is not a stationarity test. Is this correct?
3) In SIFT there is a common test for stability and consistence. Is this correct?

I would appreciate a lot if you can help me to understand better these issues about SIFT.

>> Before using the Cleanline (that I used today for the first time) I did't use the notch filter, I used a multi taper filtering made by Anil Seth. I know that filtering is very bad for later VAR modeling, especially notch and high pass. Low pass is better (usually I use multi taper filtering to remove the noise lines and a low pass causal filter with cut off filtering of 100 Hz).
