[Eeglablist] Converting EEG Montage to Standard Montage

Hi Iman,

Sorry that the documentation is scarce, this is one of a few extensions that I am trying to prepare for the EEGLAB extension manager (I just could not help but pre-release it when I saw your message!). For now I have posted an interpmont demo video here<http://youtu.be/Q8qYxNvz_OQ> performing what I believe you are interested in.

The channels in the coordinate file do not need to be the same as the currently loaded chanlocs structure... they also do not need to sit on the same surface as you will see in the demo.

I typically use this extension for warping the chanlocs structure or interpolating an average reference site. What you are asking for, I usually only use for exporting a study set's worth of ERPs (to sLORETA for example). So keep an eye on it (as there may still be some quirks [e.g. fiducials may become unaligned with the data...]). Feel free to open "issue" tickets from the github repository if you notice any problems or come across a road block.

Hi James,
Thanks for your email!
So, should the electrode labels be the same in the original EEG file and the new coordinates? Could you please elaborate more how should I use the plug-in?

Hi Iman,

I have an EEGLAB extension "Interpmont" that may help. It can be downloaded from the public github repository here.<https://github.com/jadesjardins/interpmont>

"EEGLAB extension for interpolating recording locations. Utilities include changing current locations to fit a model surface (warplocs), Interpolating current data to locations in a coordinate file (interpmont) and re-referencing to the average interpolated site from a coordinate file (interpref)."

Once you have the extension folder extracted into the EEGLAB plugins folder use " Tools > Interpolate to coordinate file > interpolate the data to sites in a coordinate file". In the GUI select an EEGLAB recognized coordinate file and then in the "Optional inputs" edit box enter <'manual','on'> (this will allow you to coregister your loaded data set chanlocs coordinates to the surface of the new coordinate file [if they are not already on the same surface]).

I want to transform my current electrodes’ montage (128ch – bad electrodes) for each individual subject to a standard montages ( like 81 channels ) like what I can do it in BESA to make all of the electrode locations standardized for group comparison in ELECTRODE SPACE NOT SOURCE SPACE. Is there any function /plug-in to do it?
