output from @RetinoProc


I have two questions related to the output from @RetinoProc. I am using the script to create the somatotopy map and two sets of data (ccw/clw) to get the phase information.

  1. I am wondering how the @RetinoProc script calculate the power from the time series. I think we can calculate the power by taking abs after applying Fast Fourier Transform. However, when I calculate the power manually and compared with the power value output from @RetinoProc, I could not get the same power values. Could you tell me how @RetinoProc script calculate the power?

  2. How can I set the significance levels (p- or q-value) after running the @RetinoProc script? When I looked at the data in SUMA, both the p and the q value are set to N/A and I only have an option to change the thresholding which is the power value. I’ve searched this issue and found this https://afni.nimh.nih.gov/afni/community/board/read.php?1,136980,137212#msg-137212, but nobody answered this. Several methods related to the phase-encoding analysis are using correlation by estimating coherence or converting f-ratio (by comparing the power at the stimulus frequency to the power of the other frequencies) to p-value. Could you tell me how I can handle the significance levels?

Many thanks,

Hello all,

Can anyone help with these issues?
