9.8.2. Massively univariate analysis of a calculation task from the Localizer datasetΒΆ

This example shows how to use the Localizer dataset in a basic analysis. A standard Anova is performed (massively univariate F-test) and the resulting Bonferroni-corrected p-values are plotted. We use a calculation task and 20 subjects out of the 94 available.

The Localizer dataset contains many contrasts and subject-related variates. The user can refer to the plot_localizer_mass_univariate_methods.py example to see how to use these.
