sorry to bother you again, but given your fast and efficient feedback everything is getting sorted out very well, so I have another question:

when I run FASTER with unmarked epoching, everything is fien, and the resulting dataset is an epoched one.

On the other hand, if I run it with marked epoching, it does not take into account this information, and the output dataset is a continuous one.

what I indicate as the marker is its name (the same way I would do in EEGLAB when selecting an epoch). is this the correct way? any idea of why this could not work?

thanks again
