NAME

pymvpa2-plotmotionqc - BOLD fMRI motion QC plot  

SYNOPSIS

pymvpa2 ,plotmotionqc /[,--version/] [,-h/] [,-s FILE /[,FILE /...]] [,--estimate-order LABEL/] [,--rad2deg/] [,--outlier-minthresh OUTLIER_MINTHRESH/] [,--outlier-stdthresh OUTLIER_STDTHRESH/] [,--savefig FILENAME/]  

DESCRIPTION

Generate a QC plot for (BOLD fMRI) motion estimates of multiple segments.

The generated figure consists of two subplots: one for translation and one for rotation. The L2-norm for each motion type is plotted. Segment boundaries are indicated with dashed vertical lines. The following statistics are visualized

1. Range across subjects (min, max) with a light gray shaded area

2. 50% percentile around the mean with a medium gray shaded area

3. Standard error of the mean (SEM; +/-) with a dark gray shaded area

4. Median across subjects with a black line

5. Outlier subjects are represented as individual red lines

Outliers are defined as subjects that exceed the threshold anywhere within a given segment. In that case the entire motion time series for that segment is plotted as an outlier.

Example

pymvpa2 plotmotionqc -s sub*/func/*run-1_bold_mc.txt -s sub*/func/*run-2_bold_mc.txt --savefig motion.png  

OPTIONS

--version
show program's version and license information and exit
-h, --help, --help-np
show this help message and exit. --help-np forcefully disables the use of a pager for displaying the help.
-s FILE [FILE ...], --segment FILE [FILE ...]
two or more text files with motion estimate time series. This option can be given multiple times (with multiple time series each to generate a multi-segment plot (e.g. for multiple run).
--estimate-order LABEL
column order of estimates in the files. `transrot` indicates translation first, followed by rotation. `rottrans` refers to the oposite order. [Default: 'transrot']
--rad2deg
If specified, rotation estimates are assumed to be in radian and will be converted to degrees.
--outlier-minthresh OUTLIER_MINTHRESH
absolute minimum threshold of outlier detection. Only value larger than this this threshold will ever be considered as an outlier. [Default: None]
--outlier-stdthresh OUTLIER_STDTHRESH
minimum threshold in units of standard deviation for outlier detection. [Default: None]
--savefig FILENAME
file name to store the QC figure under. Without this option the figure is shown in an interactive viewer.
