[Eeglablist] Data epoching, event creation and ERP analysis

Dear Rabnawaz,

Yes, this is analyzing data 101. First you need to import your raw data then fuse the data with E-Prime text files (Menu File > Import event info > From E-prime ….), then filter your data, reject artifact manually, reject data with ICA, extract your epochs and plot ERPs. This is basically the outline for the EEGLAB tutorial, which I suggest you look at.


Best wishes,

The stimuli consisted of congruent and incongruent conditions and presented randomly on the screen.After the subject responded, a fixation was shown for 500ms and then the next stimulus appeared.

And the duration of the epoch should be equal to response time + 500ms (fixation). Then I want to average the epoches based on condition/type (congruent and incongruent) and obtain 2D ERP at each channel. Also, when i plot(scroll) the data from EEGLAB plot menu, i want to see the boundaries inserted for each stimulus.
