Coherence differences and factorial designs

Hi FieldtripUsers,

    In a fixed effects context I have been obtaining coherence estimates. I have been reading Maris et al 2007 and the theory there describes how to test between two different conditions
I would like to extend the theory in that paper (2.7.1) to k sample (one factor eg 1 x 3 ANOVA) and two-way (e.,g. 2 x 2 designs). I was wondering if anyone had attempted such a thing if it can be done, and in particular how one might go about constructing an apprppriate test statistic and surrogate distribution? Prior implementation in fieldtrip isnt needed its more the theory behind it I am asking about
Thanks for your help,
Dr Suresh Muthukumaraswamy
