thanks for the message. True I uploaded .edf version of the original .bdf
the original pdf can be found here
I think the channel info was 'STI 014' as this appears to be the only place
where I get events id
[ 65281 65282 etc]
definitely I am missing something in how to read the triggers from biosemi
Looking at mne.io.read_raw_edf, there appears to be required an annotation
file and annotation map to interprete the stim_channel...but am not clear
what is to be done here
