EEGLAB datasets  (each an 'EEG' structure in Matlab) has an 'Events'
substructure ('EEG.Events') that has event type and latency as required
fields. Other info can be entered as new fields (such as, 'EEG.role', or
etc.). See the EEGLAB tutorial for functions to enter you 'trigger' data
into the Events structure. In near future the third-generation HED
(Hierarchical Event Descriptors) system functions will be ready to
systematize the process of entering and using more detailed information
about the nature of events for epoch selection, etc. Read how to do this
now using EEGLAB epoch selection tools in the EEGLAB tutorial.
