Ft_connectivityanalysis works also with different kinds of
electrophysiological data. It's on our list to make the documentation
to this function clearer. This will hopefully happen soon.
For now, I don't think this is the function you need for inter-trial
coherence. Ft_connectivityanalysis computes bivariate metrics, i.e.
measures of connectivity defined between channel pairs. In your case,
you want to estimate the consistency of oscillatory phase across
trials (and not the consistency of the phase difference between a pair
of channels across trials). So what you need to do is probably
something like this:
cfg = ;
cfg.output = 'fourier';
freq = ft_freqanalysis(cfg, data);
Next, to obtain the itc, do the following
tmpdat = freq.fourierspctrm;
tmpdat = tmpdat(abs(tmpdat)); % this will normalise each trial for its
itc = abs(mean(tmpdat)); % this will give the itc
