Sorry for the mix up. Apparently I was not yet fully awake when typing my previous reply. Blame it on the offspring, which kept me awake during some crucial parts of the night: where I typed 'Floris', I of course meant to type 'Ingmar' ;-). To all Florises on the list: this was a free answer to a question you didn't know you wanted to ask.

But not yet the magnitude squared coherence, which is usually reported in the literature for coherence. So all I need to do is square the coherence value calculated by Fieldtrip right?
