I am trying to study the correlation between a clinical measurement and FBA metrics. I just wanted to make sure that my design and contrast matrices do what they’re supposed to do.
My design matrix looks like this:
|Clinical measurement||gender||demeaned age|
and my contrast matrix looks like this:
1 0 0
I’m trying to study the correlation of the first column (the clinical measurement) with the FBA metrics (FD, FC and FDC), while correcting for gender and demeaned age. Am I doing this right??
Any input is appreciated. Thanks for the constant support!
