How to Set thr in the image caculator?

Dear Dr Yan

         I have several problem which confuse me .

         1. How to set the thr in the image caclator. I gonna set a mask use the expression, (i1<thr)+(i2<thr). I have no idea about the definition of thr. I had ever used the number of Voxels(alpha sim correction) and thr in Viewer. But it doesn't work.

        2.It confuse me that there are many noises in the blank region. 


smoothing, alff and reho

Dear Dr.Yan,

May I ask a simple but sounds stupid question? I know it should do reho before smoothing, but is it possible that calculate alff before smoothing as well? Why?




Mixed effect analysis

Dear experts

In a statistcal analysis of DPABI, a default setting of mixed effect analysis is 2X2. 

What if I want to use mixed effect analysis of DPABI with factors greater than 2?

Paired T-test in RS comparison

Dear Experts,

I am new to FSL and RS signal analysis, so I need a help to understand the methods and the results of a preliminary fcMRI study that my supervisor has been working through.

He wanted to test variation in connectivity within motor circuits at rest. It is a single group design with repeated measures, divided into three parts: baseline RS scan, task performance and control RS scan. The idea was to compare the two RS scans in order to see variation in connectivity after the task performance, thus expecting increase functional connectivity within motor circuits.

How to run DPARSFA on Sun Grid Engine

Dear DPARSFA list,


I am wondering how I can run DPARSFA with sun grid engine (SGE). Our server does not allow to run parallel processing so I was wondering if you could give advice on how I can run DPARSFA with SGE. 


Many thanks for your help.


Best wishes,



Problem with running preprocessing

Hi there,

While attempting to run the preprocessing on the Demo Data from the fMRI course per the video instructions, I ran into a few issues. Upon hitting run, MatLab says it is launching a parallel pool to run my processing in, but also MatLab says no jobs are currently running. Additionally, it says that the parallel pool is busy, and this continues for hours, over 9 that is. I can't seem to find the file either of the altered data, so perhaps the process is just incomplete. What could be a potential problem?

Setup for ancova with covariates


I'm trying to set up an ANCOVA with covariates.  I have FD as one covarate and 4 groups (numbered 1, 2,3,4)

How do I set up the analysis.  Can I load in an FD.txt file and a file with groups listed as 1-4, or do I make a multicolumn file with 5 columns, or do I need a separate file for each group, as well as 1 for FD?  Also, how will I know from the output that the covariate has been removed from the data prior to the group F test being computed?




map small matrix

We have correlation matrix (264*264) for 140 subjects and used this matrices in GraphVar to obtained features in excel file such as Betweennes centrality feature (140 subjects*  264 features), then we used SVM classification and the resulted discriminant features was (140 subjects*  80 features). my question, how I convert this discriminant features into NIFTI Image to be used as input for 2 sample T-test in DPABI software???
Your help is appreciated.


ReHo on residuals questions (DPARSF)



I'm trying to calculate ReHo on residuals images obtained after GLM analysis ("simulate" resting-state). 

Basically I just want to regress signal from WM and CSF, Bandpass filter, detrend and finally calculate ReHo. I have 2 questions
