Perhaps I can add one or two things to Lilla's reply. If I understand your question correctly, it pertains specifically to the math behind the amplitude correlation computation, and how this is done in ft_connectivity_corr. It is indeed as you thought, the dimension over which the correlation is computed is indeed the trial dimension. That is, for each channelpair-time-frequency-point the amplitude correlation is computed across trials. A lot of the intelligence already takes place in ft_connectivityanalysis. In your case ft_connectivityanalysis computes the covariance (and variance) across trials between the amplitudes. The only thing that happens in ft_connectivity_corr is the normalisation with the square root of the variance product.
Hope this helps,

I would specifically like to confirm (for a pending publication) how the amplitude correlation is computed when the function is given output from ft_freqanalysis which contains a time dimension (relevant cfg parameters pasted below). I've assumed this is occurring in the frequency domain across trials for sensor i and sensor j.
