[Eeglablist] ERP grand average does not reflect actual latency

How do you estimate latency? If it's point based and if you still have some high freq noise in the data (e.g. The time of the greatest maximum or minimum point) then it could be that you pick up a 'spike point' earlier in one condition that another.

I understand grand average is not the best illustration but I thought 50ms is a pretty big difference. Thank you!
