This MATLAB's script by Dr Phil A. Duke, Dr Giorgio Fuggetta, and Dr Kyle Q. Lepage, performs re-referencing using the robust Common Average Reference (rCAR) procedure put forward by Lepage, Kramer and Chu (2014) to EEG data in different formats. These EEG formats are: Brain vision Analyser (BVA); Neuroscan continuous (CNT); Neuroscan CURRY 6, 7, 8; European Data Format (EDF); BioSemi format (BDF); EEGLAB (*.set).
