Latency jitter refers to the phenomenon that an ERP component appears at various time in different trials, without adjusting this difference when averaging across trials will lead to diminished ERP (reducing the peak). Peak-picking (Spencer, Abad & Donchin, 2000) and Woody filter described in Woody (1967) are the ones I can find. Do you know of other methods to address the latency jitter problem?
