[FieldTrip] Performing time-frequency statistical tests on regional source data

Hi Emilio,

Using ft_freqstatistics is very possible. Indeed you will not be able to use clustering for multiple comparison correction. In fact, having reduced the number of comparisons to 8 already almost gets rid of the multiple comparison problem. You can use a nonparametric permutation test without a cluster-based test statistic, and do a bonferroni correction on the p-values.

I want to perform a statistical test on the regional sources' time-frequency data, comparing two experimental conditions, but I don't know whether it would be appropriate to use ft_freqstatistics (because I have regional sources instead of a complete sensor layout - making cluster formation problematic) or ft_sourcestatistics. Can you suggest a method for performing a statistical test in this situation? Thanks in advance for your help.
