Error related to slice timing

Dear Experts,

I have encountered an error in DPARSFA that seems related to slice timing.   I found another post, which suggested that slice order may be problematic (http://restfmri.net/forum/node/516).

However, we have used the same slice order before and there wasn’t a problem.

Here is the error:

Starting parallel pool (parpool) using the 'local' profile ... connected to 2 workers.

Any help will be most appreciated!

Hi Floating,

According to the error message, it's related to the settings of slice number, slice order and reference slice.

Please check these settings.

Hi Dr. Yan,

Thank you so much for the quick reply!  And yes, you are right.  I made a mistake in the slice order and now everything runs fine. 

Thanks again,

Floating
