Compute a cross-spectral density (CSD) matrix
==================================================
A cross-spectral density (CSD) matrix is similar to a covariance matrix, but in
the time-frequency domain. It is the first step towards computing
sensor-to-sensor coherence or a DICS beamformer.
This script demonstrates the three methods that MNE-Python provides to compute
the CSD:
1. Using short-term Fourier transform: :func:`mne.time_frequency.csd_fourier`
2. Using a multitaper approach: :func:`mne.time_frequency.csd_multitaper`
3. Using Morlet wavelets: :func:`mne.time_frequency.csd_morlet`

# By default, CSD matrices are computed using all MEG/EEG channels. When

# gradiometers.

# Computing CSD matrices using short-term Fourier transform and (adaptive)
# multitapers is straightforward:
csd_fft = csd_fourier(epochs, fmin=15, fmax=20, n_jobs=n_jobs)
csd_mt = csd_multitaper(epochs, fmin=15, fmax=20, adaptive=True, n_jobs=n_jobs)

# When computing the CSD with Morlet wavelets, you specify the exact
# frequencies at which to compute it. For each frequency, a corresponding
# wavelet will be constructed and convolved with the signal, resulting in a
# time-frequency decomposition.
#
# The CSD is constructed by computing the correlation between the
# time-frequency representations between all sensor-to-sensor pairs. The
# time-frequency decomposition originally has the same sampling rate as the
# signal, in our case ~600Hz. This means the decomposition is over-specified in
# time and we may not need to use all samples during our CSD computation, just
# enough to get a reliable correlation statistic. By specifying ``decim=10``,
# we use every 10th sample, which will greatly speed up the computation and
# will have a minimal effect on the CSD.
frequencies = [16, 17, 18, 19, 20]
