What is the our best guess at the correlation betwen individual alpha frequency and temporal windows in perception?
We released a simple, free, interactive, online meta-analysis tool where a user can estimate meta-analytic effect sizes for correlation data. The fully editable data table is currently populated with 27 experiments linking individual alpha-band frequency to temporal binding windows in visual and audio-visual perception.

Matlab code for time-frequency analysis
[dothewave.m]. Command line function for decomposing signals in a 2- and 3-D matrix into their time-frequency representation using Morlet wavelets. Function performs optional baseline normalization for task-based signals and has controllable parameters for the number of frequencies, the number of wavelet cycles at each frequency, and the range of frequencies.
[dotheslide.m]. Command line function for estimating the instantaneous frequency of a narrow-band signal via the "frequency sliding" method described in MX Cohen (2014) Journal of Neuroscience.
