Resources for new neuroscientists

Analysis can be tricky at times, especially in neuroscience. Our business is one of maths and stats, and it can all be a bit complex, especially for those new to the field. Below is a short list of resources available to neuroscientists that may be useful when trying to make sense of the data: 1. … Continue reading Resources for new neuroscientists

MRI and motion correction

Magnetic resonance imaging is sensitive to motion. Just like with other images, movement may cause blurring and distortion ('artefacts'). To counteract this, motion correction methods are often used. These include devices that track motion as well as software that can correct some of the artefacts after the images have been collected. We have just published … Continue reading MRI and motion correction

P-values for correlations in Excel

This is just a quick post to describe how to calculate p-values for two-variable correlations in Excel. Annoyingly, there is no direct way of doing this. Excel will give you the correlation, but not its associated p-value. It can be done, however, in a slightly roundabout way. First, calculate the correlation between your groups: =correl(variable1, variable2) … Continue reading P-values for correlations in Excel
