Compute ICA components on epochs

ICA is fit to MEG raw data. We assume that the non-stationary EOG artifacts have already been removed. The sources matching the ECG are automatically found and displayed.

Note

This example does quite a bit of processing, so even on a fast machine it can take about a minute to complete.

Read and preprocess the data. Preprocessing consists of:

  • MEG channel selection

  • 1-30 Hz band-pass filter

  • epoching -0.2 to 0.5 seconds with respect to events

  • rejection based on peak-to-peak amplitude

data_path = sample.data_path()
raw_fname = data_path + '/MEG/sample/sample_audvis_filt-0-40_raw.fif'

raw = mne.io.read_raw_fif(raw_fname)
raw.pick_types(meg=True, eeg=False, exclude='bads', stim=True).load_data()
raw.filter(1, 30, fir_design='firwin')

# peak-to-peak amplitude rejection parameters
reject = dict(grad=4000e-13, mag=4e-12)
# longer + more epochs for more artifact exposure
events = mne.find_events(raw, stim_channel='STI 014')
epochs = mne.Epochs(raw, events, event_id=None, tmin=-0.2, tmax=0.5,
                    reject=reject)
