Sorry for belated response. To add some info to Isaiah's nice reply,
> 1. So if we are performing two ICAs, we should interpolate these channels
after second ICA?
Yes. As long as ICA detects data rank correctly, you don't need to do
anything. However, sometimes it fails for unknown reason, so it's safer to
explicitly use the data rank if you know it (how many channels you
interpolated etc.) But I don't do the second ICA these days though, it
usually makes little to no difference if your first ICA is good enough. If
you want to drastically change the ICA results, you should reject 30-50% of
> 2. I assume rank of the data (used in ICA analysis) would be equivalent
to the number of channels in data after running clean line function.
If some of your channels were bridged, you have less rank than the number
> If there are for example 128 channels with which data was collected and
10 channels were removed with clean line function then the rank of the data
would be 118. If we now want to run ICA on this data do we need to add “
‘pca’,117 “ in command line option - next to ‘extended’, 1 ? as suggested
in the tutotrial :
If 128-10, then 'pca', 118 is correct. If 117, one component is wasted
(which is trivial in this case).
