I am trying to do a basic contrast between conditions during a localizer run and am having some issues. I originally ran the following 3ddeconvolve line where my input file was preprocessed to pb03. After, I didn’t find many significant clusters, so I thought I would try with a pb05 input file. I ended up finding (for multiple subjects) that my two GLT contrasts were producing the same exact clusters with the same coordinates when I ran it with the pb05 data. The pb05 clusters actually match the pb03 clusters for the animate-inanimate contrast as well. The only one that differs from the others is pb03’s word contrast. I checked the .1D timing files and they all have different times (ex. 40.65 49.71). I am just trying to figure out how this would even be possible if the input times are different between conditions? I am hoping there is something obvious here I am overlooking?

I did get these warnings:
*+ WARNING: Smallest FDR q [11 AnimateMinInanimate_GLT#0_Tstat] = 0.108797 ==> few true single voxel detections
*+ WARNING: Smallest FDR q [12 AnimateMinInanimate_GLT_Fstat] = 0.108793 ==> few true single voxel detections
Please let me know if there is another piece of information that would be useful here…
