Clusterplot not highlighting clusters & average layout file

If I understand correctly you have multiple frequencies over which you
cluster. Is that correct? (so cfg.avgoverfreq = 'no' when you called
freqstatistics?) In that case you should not call clusterplot because for
different frequencies there can be different channels part of the cluster.
Instead you can call multiplotER or multiplotTFR and use cfg.maskparameter =
'mask' to plot the significant cluster.
Hope this helps,
