brainrate

PURPOSE ^

BRAINRATE estimates the weighted mean frequency according to [1]

SYNOPSIS ^

function [br,sef90,sef95,br2] = brainrate(s,Fs,UC,A)

DESCRIPTION ^

 BRAINRATE estimates the weighted mean frequency according to [1] 
  Other (similar) parameters are the spectral edge frequency or
  the Hjorth's Mobility parameter or Barlow's center frequency.   
           
  [BRAINRATE, SEF90, SEF95] = brainrate(...)
  
  [...] = brainrate(S,Fs)
  [...] = brainrate(S,Fs,0)
       calculate stationary brainrate parameter 
  [...] = brainrate(S,Fs,UC) with 0<UC<1,
       calculates time-varying brainrate parameter using 
       exponential window 
 
 Input: 
    S    data (each channel is a column)
    UC    update coefficient (0<UC<1) 

 Output: 
    BRAINRATE    weighted mean frequency [1] 
     SEF90    spectral edge frequency (power below SEF90 is 90% of total power)        
     SEF95    spectral edge frequency (power below SEF95 is 95% of total power)
