Paradigm Analysis

Download this plugin (installation instructions)

Description: The Paradigm Analysis plugin performs regional behavior analysis based on a user selected brain region of interest (ROI). The image where the ROI is defined must be in the Talairach brain space before processing. You should verify that the origin is correctly positioned (press 'o' key in Mango), since analysis is coordinate based. Talairach spatial normalization can be done using Mango's SN plugin for anatomical images. If your image was aligned using the MNI brain template you can use the MNI-to-Tal transform, which is an option in the transform menu (Mango v2.6 and later).

Results of Paradigm Analysis are presented for BrainMap's Paradigm Classes. Only z-scores >=3.0 are considered significant (p<=0.05 with Bonferroni correction for multiple comparisons). A behavior profile chart and z-score ranked table (figure) are provided to assist with interpretation.
