 To read Blackrock data into FieldTrip, you will need the NPMK toolbox. The latest version of it can be cloned from github: https://​github.com/​BlackrockMicrosystems/​NPMK. This is a MATLAB-toolbox provided by Blackrock microsystems. FieldTrip relies on the low-level reading functionality of this code. Make sure that the *.m files in the NPMK toolbox are on the MATLAB path. To read Blackrock data into FieldTrip, you will need the NPMK toolbox.
