[Eeglablist] Removing 1/f in spectopo() before plotting topography at select frequencies.

Thanks for your response Arno,

For the case where I would like to visualize amplitude topographies at a particular frequency when there are discrete peaks, I can do this manually outside of EEG lab functions (convert to relative measures, i.e. divide by total power). I just wanted to see if there was an option that I was overlooking in spectopo() or any related EEGLAB functions

Cheers,
Brian

Dear Brian,



When you compare conditions at the study level in EEGLAB, there is a checkbox (in the spectrum plotting options) that allows you to remove common spectral activity between conditions at the subject level (this will effectively remove the 1/f trend and in fact any activity in the spectrum that is common to the different conditions).



Best wishes,



Arno
