Output peak analysis
This function returns the results for the peak analysis in a table both in the workspace (as output) and in a figure. This can be calculated on either the peak latencies determined using 'tesa_peakanalysis', or on fixed latencies provided by the user. Users can also opt to have the average amplitude incorporating data points either side of the peak instead of the absolute peak amplitude. Either the average of the TEP curve or the area under the curve (GMFA only) can be calculated. Not that tesa_tepextract needs to be run prior to output peak analysis.
Example table from output peak analysis. Values can be copied and pasted from this table into other programs (e.g. SPSS, Excel etc.).

EEGLAB user interface

1. Turn on/off table plot of peak output data.
2. Select which TEP to perform the analysis on. Selecting All will perform the analysis on all ROI and GMFA analyses in the data.
3. Select the type of calculation to perform, either amplitude of peak or area under the peak (for GMFA only). If area is selected, a value must also be entered in 5.
4. Select whether to perform the analysis at the latency of peaks determined for the individual participant with tesa_peakanaysis (individual) or on fixed latencies provided by the user (fixed). If fixed is selected, the peaks for fixed calculation must also be entered in 6.
5. If a value is included here, the function will take the average amplitude +/- the given value either side of the peak (in ms). If left blank, the function will return the absolute amplitude at the peak. A value is required for calculating area under the curve for GMFA.
6. [Required for fixed peak calculation]. Define fixed time points to return amplitude values (as opposed to individual peak latencies). Either one or multiple time points can be given.

Description
Example
Default
'winType'
'individual' or 'fixed'
Calculates values using either the latencies determined for each individual participant (using tesa_peakanalysis) or set latencies provided by the user in 'fixedPeak' (see below).
'fixed'
'individual'
'calcType'
'amplitude' or 'area'
Indicates whether to return the average amplitude of the TEP time series or the area under the curve (area under curve only for GMFA analysis). For area under curve, an analysis time window must also be entered using averageWin.
'area'
'amplitude'
'tepName'
String
String indicating which specific ROI or GMFA TEP to give output for. If not indicated, output for all TEP fields will be given.
'motor'
[ ]
'averageWin'
integer
Integer describing a time window +/- the peak (in ms) in which an average amplitude/area will be taken. If left empty, the absolute amplitude at the peak latency will be returned. A value is required for calculating area under the curve for GMFA.
5
[ ]
'fixedPeak'
integer
[Required for 'winType' fixed]. Integer or vector describing fixed latencies for calculating amplitude or area under the curve.
30 (single); [30,60,100] (multiple)
[ ]
'tablePlot'
'on' or 'off'
Plots a table with results from peak analysis.
'off'
'on'

Description
output
Table in workspace with output from peak analysis.

Examples

output = pop_tesa_peakoutput( EEG ); Returns amplitude at individual latencies for all peaks defined with tesa_peakanalysis.
output = pop_tesa_peakoutput( EEG, 'averageWin', 5 ); Returns amplitude averaged +/- 5 ms from individual latencies for all peaks defined with tesa_peakanalysis.
output = pop_tesa_peakoutput( EEG, 'averageWin', 10, 'calcType', 'area', 'tepName','parietal' ); Returns area under the curve +/- 10 ms from individual latencies for all peaks defined in parietal region of interest using tesa_peak analysis.
output = pop_tesa_peakoutput( EEG, 'winType', 'fixed', 'fixedPeak', [30,60,100,180],'averageWin', 5 ); Returns amplitude averaged +/- 5 ms from peaks given in 'fixedPeak'. It is not necessary to run tesa_peakanalysis for this option
