Bandpass in

Hi, every AFNI expert

In generally, resting-state BOLD signal range in 0.01-0.1. But when I see newest example 11b for resting state, I notice there is no bandpass anymore. Why is that? Can I band pass later when I finish example 11b?

In case of reminding others who are also interesting in this question, I copy the example 11b from

You can band pass in, as is shown in many
other examples. Band passing after the fact is not a
good idea (if it is at all).

As for why there is a resting state example without
doing it, consider:

In the “RESTING STATE NOTE” section of the output from -help, see “Comment on bandpassing”, and in
particular, the subsequent “degrees of freedom” section.

Or see my general rant on band passing.
