[FieldTrip] Connectivity analysis

Hi Kathryn,

I believe that ft_connectivityanalysis is capable of dealing with frequency domain data that contain a time dimension. I assume here that you would like to compute coherence, rather than correlation. Last time I checked, ft_connectivityanalysis could not compute an ordinary correlation coefficient.

Best wishes,

I am trying to correlate the LFP signals as a function of time, using a sliding window analysis.  I'm able to generate plots using ft_connectivityplot but this is as a function of frequency.  From what I can tell the 'mtmconvol' method generates data with a time aspect in it's dimord, but are there any functions available in fieldtrip in order to calculate the correlation as a function of time?
