>> Hi Everyone,
>> I'm currently investigating the relationship between phase angle and other
>> EEG variables. In order to get phase angle, I've been taking the angle(ITC)
>> in Matlab which gives me phase angle estimates from -pi to pi radians.
>> However, when I plot this data against time I find discontinuities at pi and
>> -pi (see attached jpeg for an example), which has become problematic in
>> using it as a predictor variable.
>> Does this suggest that the phase information is "wrapped", and, if so,
>> does Matlab's "unwrap(phase_angle_data)" function seem appropriate to anyone
>> else as a means of making my phase angle data better suited as a predictor?
>> Alternatively, I had initially wanted to constrain phase to between 0 and
>> 2pi radians - does anyone have any advice for how to make this conversion?
>> Any thoughts or ideas would be very greatly appreciated.
>> Many thanks!
