The aim of this paper is to test a technique called partial directed coherence (PDC) and its modification (squared PDC; sPDC) for the estimation of human cortical connectivity by means of simulation study, in which both PDC and sPDC were studied by analysis of variance. The statistical analysis performed returned that both PDC and sPDC are able to estimate correctly the imposed connectivity patterns when data exhibit a signal-to-noise ratio of at least 3 and a length of at least 27 s of nonconsecutive recordings at 250 Hz of sampling rate, equivalent, more generally, to 6750 data samples
