That would be great.

- Files (whole brain - not yet masked) are here

- Targets/labels are in the labels.mat file, it is binary classification,
so one classes' samples are labeled by "1", the other classes by "2", the
"7" are just the head movement parameters and can be ignored for

- I have included a struct image of the subject (subject2_struct.nii), as
well as a mask for primary sensory cortex (S1_mask.nii)

I was attempting to reproduce this:


including the plots, but my highest accuracies (1-error) were 1. outside of
the brain:)) 2. I was not sure what the necessary background files were (I
tried to guess and use similar ones I found elsewhere, but there was a
dimension mismatch - is there a resampling method in the toolbox to match
the dimensions?)

Many thanks, let me know if I can provide my (buggy?) script
