Hi Isabel,

I do not have a direct answer to your question, but as someone trying to
learn the pros and cons of the ersp analysis from study files, I find your
point very important. You mentioned in your message that you merged the data
of 8 subjects per condition and then did channel time-frequency analysis.
This means that you formed data sets of aggregate ERP amplitude-times for
each condition, and compared the two samples. So, in this case, you did a
t-test (is it Arno?) This may have led to a Type 2 error, showing you the
significant things as non-significant. Actually, my question at this point
is: in ERSP stats (parametric) in eeglab do we do Anova having subjects as
random factors?
