Paper abstract
This paper deals with the coherence function in order to study relations between channels,in the context of auditory evoked potentials, and more specifically with the statistical analysis of a coherence estimator applied to signals having periodicity. In practice, a stimulus is periodically sent and a sufficient number of individual responses are recorded to increase the signaltonoise ratio. In this way, a coherence estimator can be defined. Under some hypotheses, we get a simplified version of this quantity and we study its distribution an its mean. Simulations illustrate theoretical results. Then we estimate the mean value of the coherence computed on a given number of responses. We derive the bias versus the theoretical coherence and the number of individual responses.
