[Eeglablist] Similar ICA components

When I use average of all channels as my reference I am losing one unit of
my rank compared to the case, which I use average mastoid as reference. So,
I guess somehow using the average of all electrodes is introducing a kind
of dependence between my data matrix rows (channels)! So, I guess I should
either use pca to discard the bogus IC or use average mastoid as my
reference. My question is which method is preferred? Should I maybe go with
the average reference and just discard the bogus IC manually in Ic
In addition, when I change the reference many of my ICs change (please see
Is this suppose to happen?
