Hello Marina, some notes below. all the best.
1. You should be able to do this at least once via the gui, by creating a
new event field, and then entering the accuracy info for that event. Then
review the ouput of eegh after that has been run, and build that into your
2. Adding of sub-information into events isn't handled great in eeglab, so
you may run into some limitations as to how it deals with that info, how it
updates it, and whether it accepts all the extra event info you want to
add. You may require additional matlab expertise to build your own event
structures. I remember doing something similar to you in the past, and I
had considerable trouble with updating and re-updating the event sub-field
information. This may be a good opportunity for recommending an update to
eeglab on eeglab bugzilla.
3. For you loop, in general: Get a variable that is the current stimulus
number in the event list in eeglab. Get a second variable that is the
current stimulis number in your information array. If they match, then feed
the accuracy info into the sub-field of that event.
4. You may benefit from reviewing past eeglablist posts on similar topics,
and also reviewing the function eeg_addnewevents.
5. One alternative is to simply make epoched files that contain
epochs/events with a particular level of accuracy, and other epoched files
at different levels of accuracy. This would be an alternative to marking
every event with accuracy.
6. Once you do get the accuracy events in, you should be able to sort
epochs in erpimage based on accuracy.
