mne.time_frequency.tfr_array_stockwell(data, sfreq, fmin=None, fmax=None, n_fft=None, width=1.0, decim=1, return_itc=False, n_jobs=1)[source]

Compute power and intertrial coherence using Stockwell (S) transform.

See [1], [2], [3], [4] for more information.

data : ndarray

The signal to transform. Any dimensionality supported as long as the last dimension is time.

sfreq : float

The sampling frequency.

fmin : None, float

The minimum frequency to include. If None defaults to the minimum fft frequency greater than zero.

fmax : None, float

The maximum frequency to include. If None defaults to the maximum fft.

n_fft : int | None

The length of the windows used for FFT. If None, it defaults to the next power of 2 larger than the signal length.

width : float

The width of the Gaussian window. If < 1, increased temporal resolution, if > 1, increased frequency resolution. Defaults to 1. (classical S-Transform).

decim : int

The decimation factor on the time axis. To reduce memory usage.

return_itc : bool

Return intertrial coherence (ITC) as well as averaged power.

n_jobs : int

Number of parallel jobs to use.

st_power : ndarray

The multitaper power of the Stockwell transformed data. The last two dimensions are frequency and time.

itc : ndarray

The intertrial coherence. Only returned if return_itc is True.

freqs : ndarray

The frequencies.
