default

input

description


sgncmb

strings

Nx2 cell array of specific channel pairs to analyze


channel

strings

cell array of channel names, all combinations will be tested


Path2TSTOOL

string

path to the folder including the required TSTOOL package


toi

vector

first and last time point of the time range of interest (in seconds)


predictiontime_u

integer number

estimated prediction time (in milliseconds)


optimizemethod

string

Method to optimize parameters: 'ragwitz' or 'cao'


ragdim

1 to 10

vector

In case of optimizemethod = 'ragwitz': range of embedding dimensions to scan


ragtaurange

vector

In case of optimizemethod = 'ragwitz': 1 × 2 vector of min and max embedding delays (in units of ACT)


ragtausteps

10

integer number

In case of optimizemethod = 'ragwitz': number of equidistant steps in ragtaurange (minimum 5)


flagNei

string

In case of optimizemethod = 'ragwitz': 'Range' or 'Mass' type of neighbor search


sizeNei

integer number

In case of optimizemethod = 'ragwitz': Radius or mass for the neighbor search according to flagNei


repPred

integer number

In case of optimizemethod = 'ragwitz': repPred represents the number of sample points for which the prediction is performed (it has to be smaller than length(timeSeries) - (d - 1) * tau * ACT - u)


caodim

1 to 10

integer number

In case of optimizemethod = 'cao': indicates the range of embedding dimensions d that is scanned using the Cao criterion to find the optimal dimension


caokth_neighbors

4

integer number

In case of optimizemethod = 'cao': number of neighbors for fixed mass search for cao (controls balance of bias/statistical errors)


tau

1.5

number

In case of optimizemethod = 'cao': embedding delay (in units of ACT)


kth_neighbors

4

integer number

number of neighbors for fixed mass search in TE calculation (controls balance of bias/statistical errors). In case of using optimizemethod = 'cao': kth_neighbors = caokth_neighbors


TheilerT

'ACT'

integer number or 'ACT'

number of temporal neighbors excluded to avoid serial correla-tions in TE calculation (Theiler correction)


trialselect

'ACT'

string

selecting trials: 'no' = use all trials, 'range' = use range of trial numbers, 'ACT' use trials with ACT lower than threshold


actthrvalue

integer number

in case of trialselect='ACT' maximum threshold of the ACT for trial selection


trial_from

integer number

first trial in case of range selection of trials


trial_to

integer number

last trial in case of range selection of trials


maxlag

1000

integer

number

the range of lags for computing the ACT: from -MAXLAG to MAXLAG (in samples)


This table contains all possible parameters for the configuration structure cfg of the function TEprepare.m (TRENTOOL Version 1.0)

For integer numbers no type casting has to be performed!
