see and go to the download section. There is an EEGLAB plugin and a simple MATLAB zip file (with mex files). The content of the zip file could go into fieldtrip/external/xdf and actual EEG data import support would be added to ft_filetype and ft_read_header/data/event.

*bump* Is this readily feasible? There's an actual user currently trying a workaround, see below. Zita Eva Patai via Bijlagen09:05 (20 minuten geleden) aan FieldTrip Engels Nederlands Bericht vertalen Uitschakelen voor: Engels Dear FT-ers I would like to epoch my data, but as it is in a format not supported by Fieldtrip (.xdf), I used Eeglab to convert it, and then converted between Eeglab and FT with the eeg2fieldtrip function. Now i have a FT data structure. The data structure looks fine, but it seems that to use ft_definetrial, i need to specify a path to a file to be processed. Is there any way to change this so i can use something in the workspace? Many thanks

perhaps this can be used:

changed to wontfix for now, in order to get a better view on 'high priority' bugs I decide to remove this one from the 'new' list for now. feel free to reopen if needed, in which case some starting attempts for resolution would be highly appreciated.

This closes a whole series of bugs that have been resolved (either FIXED/WONTFIX/INVALID) for quite some time. If you disagree, please file a new issue on
