  FT_TIMELOCKSIMULATION computes a simulated signal that resembles an
  event-related potential or field
 
  Use as
    timelock = ft_timelockstatistics(cfg)
  which will return a datastructure that resembles the output of
  FT_TIMELOCKANALYSIS.
 
    cfg.fsample    = simulated sample frequency (default = 1000)
    cfg.trllen     = length of simulated trials in seconds (default = 1)
    cfg.numtrl     = number of simulated trials (default = 10)
    cfg.baseline   = number (default = 0.3)
 
  The signal is constructed from three underlying functions. The shape is
  controlled with
    cfg.s1.numcycli = number (default = 1)
    cfg.s1.ampl     = number (default = 1.0)
    cfg.s2.numcycli = number (default = 2)
    cfg.s2.ampl     = number (default = 0.7)
    cfg.s3.numcycli = number (default = 4)
    cfg.s3.ampl     = number (default = 0.2)
    cfg.noise.ampl  = number (default = 0.1)
 
  Specifying numcycli=1 results in a monophasic signal, numcycli=2 is a biphasic,
  etc. The three signals are scaled to the indicated amplitude, summed up and a
  certain amount of noise is added.
 
  Following construction of the signal in each trial according to the
  specification, the signals are averaged over trials. Both the average, the
  variance and the individual trial signals are returned.
