[Eeglablist] Is the false QRS detection of the fMRI plug-in for EEGLAB?

Dear TsungHao,

If your ECG signal is noisy QRS detection fails of course.
I used VisEd to manually correct/input the qrs markers as long as my
eyeballs can tell where they are. If you can't even see it, then your ECG
is gone. There is no magic to recover it.

Clean ECG recording is as important as EEG recording in fMRI-EEG. You have
to be VERY careful when you place ECG channel AND ITS CABLE.
