Hey Hweeling,
"Just to ensure that I get this right, I should create a variable for the behavioural measure such that the variable contains a powspctrm field with the behavioural information for every frequency?"
> indeed
"What I'm confused is that in the walkthrough website, under the subsection on correlation, it is suggested to create the cfg.design with the behavioural measure that one wants to correlate. So is this information in the walkthrough website incorrect?"
> the walkthough may refer to a GLM-based statistical implementation, for which the FT implementation differs from the correlationT statfun. Namely, the former uses the behavioral measure as a regressor in a data model whereas the latter uses the behavioral measure as a datapoint series for correlation with another datapoint series (and then converts to a T value). The correlationT statfun is relatively 'new', hence not yet addressed in the walkthrough.
Yours,
arjen

Dear Arjen,
Thanks for the prompt reply again!
Just to ensure that I get this right, I should create a variable for the behavioural measure such that the variable contains a powspctrm field with the behavioural information for every frequency?
What I'm confused is that in the walkthrough website, under the subsection on correlation, it is suggested to create the cfg.design with the behavioural measure that one wants to correlate. So is this information in the walkthrough website incorrect?
Cheers,
Hweeling

Hey Hweeling,
It seems you're only inserting one input variable into the statistics function, i.e. "[c200_delta_stat] = ft_freqstatistics(cfg, sub_LF_c200{:});"
Could you try something along this line: ft_freqstatistics(cfg, freq1, freq2)
where freq1 is the original freq data, and freq2 is a copy of freq but with the relevant values (say, in powspctrm) replaced with behavior values (ensure this behavior matrix is matched in terms of size and dimensions to the original freq values).
Hope this helps,
Arjen

Dear Arjen,
Thanks for the prompt reply. I keep getting an error message when I set up my correlation cluster statistics, and I'm not sure what I could have done wrong. Here's my script:
cfg = [];
cfg.layout = 'EEG1010.lay';
cfg.neighbours = neighbours;
cfg.channel = 'all';
cfg.latency = 'all';
cfg.avgovertime = 'no';
cfg.avgoverchan = 'no';
cfg.avgoverfreq = 'yes';
cfg.parameter = 'powspctrm';
cfg.method = 'montecarlo';
cfg.statistic = 'ft_statfun_correlationT';
cfg.correctm = 'cluster';
cfg.clusteralpha = 0.05;
cfg.clusterstatistics = 'maxsum';
cfg.minnbchan = 2;
cfg.tail = 0;
cfg.clustertail = 0;
cfg.alpha = 0.025;
cfg.numrandomization = 1000;
cfg.ivar = 1;
cfg.uvar = 1;
% design matrices
clear design;
% change in MMSE score relative to baseline
design(1,:) = [0.095238095<tel:%5B0.095238095> -0.045454545<tel:045454545> -0.533333333<tel:0.533333333> 0.238095238<tel:0.238095238> -0.157894737 0.117647059];
design(2,:) = 1:6;
cfg.design = design;
% for delta band
cfg.frequency = [2 4];
[c200_delta_stat] = ft_freqstatistics(cfg, sub_LF_c200{:});
[c210_delta_stat] = ft_freqstatistics(cfg, sub_HF_c210{:});
Here's the output from Matlab:
computing statistic over the frequency range [2.000 4.000]
the call to "ft_appendfreq" took 0 seconds
the call to "ft_selectdata" took 0 seconds

Hi Hweeling,
Have a look at the help of ft_statfun_correlationT, which might be the function you're looking for. This function calculates correlations between two variables (e.g. subjects' behaviors and brain activities) and converts the resulting correlation coefficients to t-statistics.
Best,
arjen

Subject: [FieldTrip] calculating behavioural-power correlation
Dear all,
I read on the "walkthrough" that it is possible to calculate behavioural-power correlation across subjects. However, I was not sure what type of descriptive statistics (i.e. cfg.statistics) I should use when performing correlation cluster statistics.
Would someone please enlighten me which type of statistics I should input for cfg.statistics?
Thanks!
Best regards,
Hweeling
