External Email - Use Caution

hi,

Thanks for the insight, it helps refine my search on the net.

I would like to confirm, say one is interested in finding the connectivity

between several channels within the frequency band between 1 to 5 Hz with

1Hz increment. Assume, the number of complex Morlet wavelet cycle is 3

(based on your rule of thumb). Does the value 3 represent the number of

cycles globally? Such that, in the spectral_connectivity module, the

parameter for cwt_n_cycles is set equal to 3.

yes

# Or something that I found unlikely (i.e., cycle for each frequency) but

presented in the aforemention basic mne example. Such that, the cwt_freqs

np.arange(1, 5, 1), then the

cwt_n_cycles = cwt_freqs /3?

what it does here is to have n_cycles that scales linearly with the

frequency.

note however that sensor space connectivity has been debated in the

literature

as sensors do not map directly to brain locations due to field spread. Some

researchers would not endorse a paper doing sensor space connectivity.

hi,

well I can just share with you my rule of thumb. If you truly look for

oscillations and not just evoked responses your time-frequency atom

(wavelet) should have at least 3 cycles. The more cycles the better the

frequency resolution and the worse the time resolution. So it's always a

trade-off and it depends on your data and your question.
