function [e_hat,W_hat]  = estimate_ICA(x,ICA_method,dim_reduction)
%Performs ICA on signal x.
%   x: x(:,t) is the t^th sample.
%   ICA_method: the method to perform ICA with. ('fastICA')
%   dim_reduction: dim(x) = size(x,1) >= dim_reduction; if '>' holds, perform dimension reduction to dimension dim_reduction, too.
%   e_hat: estimated ICA elements; e_hat(:,t) is the t^th sample.
%   W_hat: estimated ICA demixing matrix.
