-A recent development in the FieldTrip ​project ​is that we started using and extending ​it for real-time data analysis, feature extraction and classification. ​Besides data preprocessing,​ feature extraction and classification,​ which are needed for Brain-Computer Interface (BCI) and neurofeedback applications, ​we have added functionality for real-time processing of neuroimaging data in MATLAB in general ​using a common interface to the data. +Although ​the FieldTrip ​toolbox ​is primarily developed for offline analysis, you can also use it for real-time data analysis, feature extraction and classification. ​To implement ​Brain-Computer Interface (BCI) and neurofeedback applications, ​the toolbox includes ​functionality for real-time processing ​of all sorts of neuroimaging data (including EEG, MEG, LFP, ECoG, iEEG, NIRS, fMRI) using a common interface to all types of data.

   * You can try to report and compare the wall clock time with the sample time. Here, wall clock time refers to the real time your computer has run since you started the acquisition loop, while sample time is given by the amount of data processed so far, divided by your sampling frequency. These two numbers should ideally be the same or have a small constant offset, but they should not drift apart. Successive sample and clock times should also match your blocksize, that is, if you always read 500 samples at a time from a device, and your sampling rate is 1000 Hz, your measured clock time and calculated sample time should increase roughly by 0.5 seconds after each block.   * You can try to report and compare the wall clock time with the sample time.
