[Eeglablist] ICA, re-referencing, interpolation

Hi Makoto,
I am trying to replicate a pipeline very precisely and this pipeline interpolates after ICA. I only wanted to remove the artefacts from the data and then convert back to channel data. If I delete the eye blink components and then convert back to raw data, -and then delete all ICA info, such as the weights and activations etc, is it then safe for me to interpolate using the channel data (which now has blinks removed)?

If I really have to avoid the situation, then how do you get around rank issues of interpolating before? I know you delete channels but how do you know how many to delete in relation to the number of channels interpolated. If possible I would like to interpolate after, as I only need to work with the channel data after the ICA.

Thank you again for your advice! Very much appreciated.
Jumana

Dear Jumana,

I encountered that kind of situation many times, which is why I thought it would be a nice idea to show the exact steps in the wiki page. Now you see my point!

Editing channels after ICA is DANGEROUS. There are even some phenomena that confused me to death which I still don't understand (and do not remember well any more). Some of EEGLAB's check function can detect the change of channel number difference and inconsistency with EEG.ica-items, but not all the operations are not supported, particualy any behavior outside GUI (but the worst mysterious case I experienced was replicated even using GUI, so I guess it was like I was performing bug finding in EEGLAB, as if several test players plays an alpha version of a computer game trying to do the weirdest things to find bugs.)

So, my advice is that DO NOT EDIT CHANNELS AFTER ICA. Once the mixing matrix is confused and how it happened, you are done. Just stay away from that situation.

I appreciate though you have been doing exploration! I'm glad to see that at least other guys than I experience the same issues.

>From Lufthansa455 to Frankfurt,

Makoto

Dear EEGLab,

I do not include noisy channels in ICA which I only do to remove eye related components, and specifically want to interpolate then after ICA for rank reasons. I have now done this to over 100 datasets.
However, once I interpolate and then re-reference my data to the average, I get the error: Error: some channels not used for ICA decomposition are used for rereferencing
       the ICA decomposition has been removed

However, I purposefully wanted to interpolate these after ICA, and then use them for the average.
Is my eye-blink removal via ICA now affected and undone?
I would appreciate any advice.
Best wishes,
Jumana
