[FieldTrip] About calculation of total power in TFr analysis

Dear Tuna,

As far as I understand, the morlet-TFR example as used in the tutorial (http://www.fieldtriptoolbox.org/tutorial/timefrequencyanalysis) computes total (evoked and induced) power, per trial and time bin, and then averages over trials.

To compute total power in the 1000ms epoch, I would suggest using cfg.method=’mtmfft’. E.g., something like the following, assuming that your data is organized in trials in a variable called ‘data’. BTW, note that because of your 1000ms data epoch, the intrinsic frequency resolution of your data is 1 Hz (1/1), thus spectral power below 1 Hz will be poorly estimated.

cfg.toilim=[0.0 1.0]; %1000ms time window

cfg.foilim= [0.1 40];
cfg.channel = ‘all’;

Hope that helps.

Best, Stan

Subject: [FieldTrip] About calculation of total power in TFr analysis

Dear all,

Although I have been using Fieldtrip over a year for the ERP analyses mostly, I am new in this e-mail list. I want to ask a simple question that has been challenging for me.

Regarding the time-frequency analysis (Morlet), I would like to calculate the total power over 1000 milliseconds and 0.1-40 Hz range. I realised that the codes in tutorial provides the calculation of evoked power.

Could someone please help me with that?

Thanks very much in advance. Kind regards, best,
