Dear Lucy,

It seems what you want to do is to use the hierarchical epochs selection.
If you have an epochs object which contains condA, condB, condC and condD,
you can get epochs of condE by simply using epochs['condA', 'condB'].
Please take a look at the MNE reference API for the epochs object:
http://martinos.org/mne/stable/generated/mne.Epochs.html#mne.Epochs (look
at the Notes section). Does this solve your problem?

Best regards,
Mainak
