Hi there,
I am trying to solve this task, I have matrix with Experimental Conditions eg:
A =
10 12 13 13 13
13 10 14 16 14
10 11 12 12 14
9 14 10 16 14
10 9 15 14 12
12 13 9 15 10
and corresponding accuracy matrix with logical values 1 (for the correct responses) and 0 (for incorrect responses), eg:
B =
1 1 0 0 0
1 1 1 0 1
1 0 0 1 1
1 1 1 0 1
0 0 1 1 1
1 0 0 1 1
What I need to do, is to count up correct trials for eg. first five trials within experimental condition "10" (ordered in columns, so first count 1st column then 2nd etc..) so in this case the 5th experimental condition "10" is located in A(4,3) and so the result would be 4.
Thank you very much in advance.
Rene

You can do this:
experiment_10=find(A==10);
first_five_trials=B(experiment_10(1:5));
correct_trials=sum(first_five_trials)
