Dear MNE users,
I wish to run permutation cluster t-test (2-tailed) on my sensor level data (cond A vs. cond B). I am wondering how best to deal with the planar gradiometer data from a Neuromag 306 system and would be grateful for advice.
Since I am not interested in the direction of the gradients at individual gradiometers within a pair, I think it makes most sense to combine the data for each 102 pairs using RMS (for each gradiometer then RMS(g) = sqrt(sum(g₁²+g₂²)/2)). I would perform the t-tests on these RMS data. I then wondered how neighbourhood definitions for clustering ought to be defined - I was thinking I could replace my magnetometer values with the new RMS gradiometer values and use the neighbourhood definitions from “neuromag306mag”.
I took the options for the neighbourhood templates after reading this page here:
http://martinos.org/mne/dev/generated/mne.channels.read_ch_connectivity.html#mne.channels.read_ch_connectivity
Does this make sense or would you suggest a different approach? Ought I to obtain t-values for each of the 204 gradiometers and perform the clustering on these values instead?
Many thanks for any guidance,
Lucy MacGregor
