[Eeglablist] How to plot cluster ERP topo maps at specific latencies

Dear James,

If you want to see a time-varying scalp topos of the STUDY ERPs, it's a bit
tricky. They do change scalp top patterns along with latency due to
time-varying ERPs and averaging across ICs.

In the std_envtopo(), the solution is coded. However it should be hard to
figure out how it is addressed and therefore not recommended, though that's
like the only way to address it correctly.

If you haven't tried std_envtopo() I recommend you try it out first.

Makoto
