Thank you for making these tools available to the public. I'm receiving the following error when I run DPARSF (latest version) in Matlab 2016a: 



AutoMask generates a white rectangle for a single subject


I am new to DPARSFA. AutoMask doesn't seem to be working for me. It runs without errors, but doesn't properly mask it brain. It just generates a white rectangle that covers the entire area. Screenshot is attached. Please advise. Thanks.

How to add only ROI when I I finished the whole analysis?

Dear Chao-Gan,

I use the spm8, MatlabR2014b and DPSRASF basic 2.3_130615.

My analysis lasts 10 h for 20 patients. I would like add only next ROI. My question is,  who I have to choose a folder ? And sekend: do I have of defining "time point" again? I have mistake and  dparsf not responding. I've tried different ways.

Thanks in advance for your help.


Type of statistical test in GraphVar Turbo

Dear GraphVar team.

I just wanted to ask what sort of statistical tests are used while doing the following comparisons using GraphVar GLM Turbo (for reference I am using structural connectivity matrices from DTI tractography as inputs):

1) Having "Group" (patients vs controls) as a between factor and three variables as nuisance covariates. I.e. assessing differences between the two groups on graph metrics. Are the nuisance covariates regressed out prior to t-tests?


How to use the results of ANCOVA and make statistical inference?

Hi Yan,

I perfomed ANCOVA  and chose tukey as post hoc analysis to find the diffefence of 3 groups, however I don't know how to explain the results. 

An error occured when I tried to view the results of F.nii using dpabi viewer.


Error DPABI viewer under Matlab 2016a


It seems that I can't run DPABI properly under Matlab 2016a. When I start dpabi I get the following error and the logo doesn't show up (but dpabi starts without showing the logo): 


NBS for two 'mean' graphs

Good Afternoon,

I have a quick question regarding the use of the NBS statistics toolbox within Graphvar. If I have two groups and from each have calculated a mean network for each group, can I use the NBS package to compare the two mean graphs. I worry that this wouldnt be statistically valid in the sense that the sample would effectively be two. 

Instead would I need to run a test like the hamming distance to compare two individual mean networks? If so is this within the scope of the Graphvar program?


error when performing mixed effect analysis

Hi Yan,

An error occured when I am performing mixed effect analysis using DPABI.  There are 2 groups of subjects (19 control and 19 patient) in my data and each group underwent 2 fMRI scan in 2 different times.  I chose grey matter density as covariate images and FD as txt covariates. Should I perform ANCOVA (repeat) or mixed effect analysis to see the difference between the two groups and within two patient conditions? How do I perform post-hoc analysis after mixed effect analysis since there is no post hoc analysis to cho0se in mixed effect analysis?
