Example 1: ft_channelselection({'eeg', '-P5', '-AF*'}, {'AF3', 'AF4', 'P5', 'CP5', 'Oz'}) ans = 'Oz' When the expected output would be, {'CP5', 'Oz'} ---------------------------------------------------------------------------- Example 2: This does not occur when no wildcards are included. ft_channelselection({'eeg', '-P5',}, {'AF3', 'AF4', 'P5', 'CP5', 'Oz'}) ans = 'AF3' 'AF4' 'CP5' 'Oz' ---------------------------------------------------------------------------- If it's is not expected that wildcards and name channels are mixed at least a warning should be issued.

I observe >> ft_channelselection({'eeg', '-P5', '-AF*'}, {'AF3', 'AF4', 'P5', 'CP5', 'Oz'}) ans = 'CP5' 'Oz' which seems in line with expectations. Please check that you have the latest FieldTrip version.

I concur with Robert. Since this has not been followed up, I will close now.
