[Eeglablist] Removing redundancies from overlapping epochs prior to ICA

Dear Michael,

Let's say you have stimulus presentation every 1 second.
When you epoch data, epoch it to -1 to 2 sec (Dataset A) and 0 to 1 sec
(Dataset B). You thoroughly clean Dataset B for ICA. When done, copy ica
weight matrix from Dataset B to Dataset A (you can do it using GUI) and run
dipfit. If necessary, clean Dataset A mildly.

> putting the epochs back after ICA?

This is technically feasible but complicated. I don't recommend it unless
you have special reason to do it.

If you are interested developing your own tool outside EEGLAB, I'd like to
point you to one of my plugins ARfitStudio in which I use mcolon() to crop
out and put back epochs efficiently.
