Read evoked data

    Found the data of interest:
        t =     -50.00 ...     250.00 ms (SEF)
        0 CTF compensation matrices available
        nave = 2790 - aspect type = 100
No projector specified for this dataset. Please consider the method self.add_proj.

Create a highpass filtered version

evoked_hp = evoked.copy()
evoked_hp.filter(l_freq=300, h_freq=None)
Setting up high-pass filter at 3e+02 Hz

FIR filter parameters
Designing a one-pass, zero-phase, non-causal highpass filter:
- Windowed time-domain design (firwin) method
- Hamming window with 0.0194 passband ripple and 53 dB stopband attenuation
- Lower passband edge: 300.00
- Lower transition bandwidth: 75.00 Hz (-6 dB cutoff frequency: 262.50 Hz)
- Filter length: 133 samples (0.044 sec)

Compare high-pass filtered and unfiltered data on a single channel

ch = 'MEG0443'
pick = evoked.ch_names.index(ch)
edi = {'HF': evoked_hp, 'Regular': evoked}
mne.viz.plot_compare_evokeds(edi, picks=pick)
