The blue line averages over all times - thus it may appear
non-significant even when some time windows are significant.

This is an option ('plotphase','on') that shows the value of the ITC as
well as the *sign* of the ITC phase - this allows counting of
half-cycles in the significant area. Also, the sign of the ITC phase
gives the sign of its contribution to the ERP. The negative color range
should be documented in the color bar, however - we will see about
adding that in the next version -- or, if anyone else has done it?? ...
You can always turn this open off - though once understood, I find it

Yes - the results reported for an FFT window are refered to the middle
of that window. So (both) ends of the epoch are shrunk.
