Dear Alessio,

Getting back to you after 3 month!

or 60%?

This is a good question.
Usually EOG is decomposed well, so the result is rather black and white.
You can reduce it by optimizing settings (using proper preprocessing and

However, sometimes this mixture of brain EEG and non-brain artifact
happens. In this case, you are forced to choose either false positive
(include them) or false negative (exclude them). I tend to include them. If
you exclude them, you typically find no frontal ICs.
