The frequency spectrum of MEG/EEG data is rich and complex. Multiple processes take place simultaneously and engage neural populations at various spatial, temporal and frequency scales. The purpose of data pre-processing is to enhance the levels of signals of interest, while attenuating nuisances or even rejecting some episodes in the recordings that are tarnished by artifacts. In the following subsections, it is presupposed that the investigator is able to specify – even at a crude level of details – the basic temporal and frequency properties of the signals of interest carrying the effects being tested in the experiment. In a nutshell, it is important to target upfront, a well-defined range of brain dynamics in the course of the design of the paradigm and of the analysis pipeline.
