I want to get some help regarding GLM.
The GLM analysis that needs to be performed to get the beta estimates is a
multiple regression analysis. In other words, I need to specify a model
that includes predictors (one predictor for each condition, a confound-mean
predictor (all-one vector), and optionally head-motion and trend
predictors), and then fit this model to the data to obtain the
*TR (scan repeat time) = 3000 ms. Functional measurement consisted of 220
Attached with this email the table of Onsets and Durations for both
conditions. There are also indices of the conditions but for me they are
not logical as they don't really correspond to the timings. Anyway, I have
an important question. What about the number of scans for each condition
and also for the rest condition? The durations are real numbers and if i
try to divid the number by 3 (which is TR) i get real number of scans, so
i'm not exactly sure of the number of 1s and 0s in the model.
It is needed to convolve the model with gamma function, how this could be
done? What about the parameters of gamma function? I also don't know how to
do the additional and confound-mean predictors.
Thanks in advance,
