I had a similar issue and had talked to our mathematicians/statisticians. They recommended to use Bonferroni...although that is not the answer you were looking for and other people might have better ideas, I though the info might still be valuable.

Betreff: [FieldTrip] FDR correction of multiple cluster-based permutation tests
Dear FieldTrip list,
I would like to correct the results of multiple cluster-based permutation tests using FDR. This is obviously trivial when I have a single cluster for every single test. However, this does not happen in general. My biggest problem is when I have no cluster at all because I also don't have a p value then.
Is there a reasonable way to extract a p value from the cluster-statistics when no cluster can be found? I have thought about just using p = 1 in these cases, but that seems very arbitrary and intuitively wrong.
Can anybody think of a different way of FDR-correcting multiple cluster-based permutation tests?
Obviously, I could also just use Bonferroni to adjust the alpha level, but that is simply too restrictive in general. But maybe someone knows a different way of correcting for multiple comparisons for this case that is neither Bonferroni nor FDR?
Any help and/or references would be greatly appreciated!
