bdf channel extraction

Post by tom_campbell75 »

Dear all,

I have had a look through some of the LabView utilities, but I do not think that any of them can extract one EEG channel from a bdf file, so as to save this as a (much smaller) bdf file containing just one channel.

Please, your suggestions are welcome.

Kind regards,

As an alternative, you can use the LabVIEW tool from

By the way, you should extract at least 2 channels, because only the difference between channels generates valid data (see discussion about reference and CMS/DRL)
