The tutorial documentation that we are providing is assuming a basic  
knowledge about timefrequency analysis in general and wavelets in  
particular, and is mainly meant to get started with our fieldtrip  

If you want to know more about wavelets, you might consider having a  
look at http://www.mathworks.com/access/helpdesk/help/toolbox/wavelet/.  
Although we are not using the wavelet toolbox ourselves (we implemented  
it differently), I commonly find the Matlab documentation quite good  
(on a technical level), and it does include many examples and demo's  
that you might try out. Furthermore, it will also help you to get a  
better knowledge of the Matlab environment.

The page  
ch01_in3.html#1022591 will give you some pointers to other background  

best regards,

PS I have forwarded your mail to the fieldtrip email discussion list,
