Hi Lidia,

Transforming a number that is bounded between -1 and 1 into a number that has absolute value and is bounded between 0 and 1 can be achieved by taking the abs().
Alternatively, you could compute the classic PLI from a time series of complex-valued cross-spectral density estimates by abs(mean(sign(angle(x))));
