imotion data can have column name like 'Joy Evidence' or 'Joy Intensity'. Now imotion2fieldtrip reads this as 2 separate columns "Joy" and "Evidence". And then the second Joy does not appear.

that might explain why I see some values in one of the datasets consistently as nan, probably the column values are shifted relative to the header.

can you check line 57 in fieldtrip/private/read_imotions_txt.m, where the line with the labels is split into pieces? dat.Labels = tokenize(aline{headerline}); should probably be dat.Labels = tokenize(aline{headline}, '\t'); to make sure it is split on tabs, not on any whitespace (which I suspect to be the default).
