Dear Makoto,

Thank you for the quick and kind reply. This is really practical and easy to understand. Is this method published anywhere? I am referring to Takahashi & Kitazawa (2017, JNS) for Silhouette value as a criterion of IC clustering.

For example, if you determine to include at least 70% of unique subjects, after clustering you count how many unique subjects are included, and if it did not reach 70%, you lower the number of clusters and try it again until it meets the 70%-criterion. In most of my plugins for STUDY anlaysis, it is reported how many unique subjects are included by each cluster.

I am trying to cluster 323 ICs from 31 participants by dipoles. I repeated the code 10  times, and the number of clusters for which the average Silhouette value was greatest was 15 or 16. Can I understand that the best number of clusters here is 15 or 16? Thank you very much again.

You can run the code below after you pre cluster in STUDY to get the mean and individual Silhouette coefficients for different cluster solutions.

Silhouette value is one of the criteria for the best number of clusters in IC clustering, and I have found the description of silhouette value in EEGLAB Wiki (A10: MI-clust) for a single participant. Can we get silhouette values for group data in STUDY formats? Thank you in advance.
