batch script for NIRS-SPM

1 min read

I wrote some batch scripts for NIRS-SPM. They, together with NIRS-SPM and xTopo, are called “super” package (I apparently run out of names). The “super” package are located in directory:

/fs/quarry/cuixu/NIRS/super

Please don’t modify the files inside.

“super” contains the following scripts:

  1. mes2NIRSSPM, which converts Hitachi measurement data (in csv format) to NIRS-SPM recognized format (.mat file). Note: this script allows you to convert one or two files (for bilateral 3×5 and 4×4 configurations, you have 2 csv files) into one mat files. NIRS-SPM itself only convert 1 (I already contacted NIRS SPM developers to add this functionality.).
  2. spec, which specify your general linear model (design matrix), including data file, where to save spm files, either HbR or HbO, onset timing, duration etc.
  3. estimate_indiv, do estimation
  4. cuixu_nirsContrast, do contrast. Here you specify contrast vector etc
  5. estimate_group, do group estimation

All of these scripts can run alone — you don’t need to click button etc. To get more information of how to use these scripts, you may type help <script name>.

Here is instructions:

  1. Log in to server (e.g.  ssh fmri@scuttlebutt -Y)
  2. Start matlab with SPM5 in the path (e.g. ml7spm5 -jvm)
  3. add the path of super
    addpath(genpath('/fs/quarry/cuixu/NIRS/super'))
  4. Enter a directory where you prefer to work (e.g. your data’s directory).
  5. Use mes2NIRSSPM to convert csv to mat file. e.g.
    mes2NIRSSPM(nirsfile, [‘converted_NIRS_’ subject_name])
    Note: nirsfile is a cell array. Each element is a file name. For 4×4 and 3×5 configurations, you have 2 files; for 3×11, you have only one.
  6. You need to configure your channel positions and get a channel position mat file. You can use the default files provided in super/templateFile/.
  7. use spec to specify design matrix. e.g.
    spec(‘converted_NIRS_c.mat’, ‘./newspmdir’,1, {‘trial1′,’t2′},{[1:1:100]’,[2:2:200]’},{ones(100,1),ones(100,1)*2});
    Type help spec for more info.
  8. use estimate_indiv to begin estimation. e.g.
    estimate_indiv(spmfile)
  9. use cuixu_nirsContrast to do contrast.
  10. Repeat step 5-9 for other subjects
  11. use estimate_group to do group analysis
  12. To view result, launch nirs spm, click button “Results NIRS”. There you input the individual (or group)’s spm file, and channel location mat file (not required for group), and click button “Contrast”.

  1. Hi Xu,
    thank you very much for writing the “super” package. In your discription are some batches I need for my analysis with NIRS_SPM but I have not found the download here for your package.

    If it´s no more online available, please can you send it to my private emailadress?

    Thank you very much!

    kind regards,
    Susanne

  2. Would you send me the code as well please? I have about 90 files I need to convert for individual and group analysis. Automating the contrast and group analysis would be very helpful.

    Thanks,
    Matthew

  3. Is this code still available? I just started with NIRS and am a bit lost as to coding around NIRS_SPM. Let me know if you could share, thanks!

    soupblolwall@gmail

  4. Hi Xu

    Hereby I would like to ask whether you still have the code for the batch processing using NIRS-SPM. I would be very grateful if you could share it with me, your ‘super’ package?

    Thank you in advcance,
    Lisa Holper

  5. Hi Xu,
    Thanks again for your hint, I downloaded the package.
    I know it is a long time ago you wrote that code. But would it be possible for you to adapt the code in order to process all subjects in one run?
    I have hundreds of subjects -)
    best
    Lisa
