Removing Chunks of Data Before Preprocessing
The start and end of the timeseries are irrelevant to the task, and are actually very noisy, so I would like them removed before I run the preprocessing like PCA. Is there any way for me to remove chunks of my data in Homer before preprocessing? If not, is it possible to do so with the NIRS/SNIRF files? I found this thread ( https://openfnirs.org/community/homer3-forum/exporting-raw-data/#post-744) where information is provided on how to open these files, but I'm not too sure on how to proceed from there. Any recommendations?
Really appreciate any help on this!
I had a similar issue, as my recording involved practice and priming blocks taken after a steady state baseline.
My workaround was to open the raw .txt files in excel, remove the unwanted data and then save the edits as tab delimited .txt files. These can then be converted into nirs > snirf .
Thank you for the help Christopher! Did you get .txt files from your NIRS data acquisition software? In my case (using NIRStar) I only get .nirs, .hdr, .wl1 & .wl2.
Any thoughts on how to achieve this chopping up for this data? It would also be nice to split my different tasks, so I can preprocess rest data and task data separately.
