User-Specified Groups

groupsUsing the Groups Window below, the user can divide all the trials stored in a data file into any number of groups. Here, there are 4 groups specified (unimaginatively named “Group 1”, “Group 2” etc). The number of groups and group names are specified in the controls to the left. Once the groups are named, then each group is selected in turn using the green buttons, and trials are assigned to that group by clicking on the list to the right. Once groups are specified, batch exporting of analyses can then be performed by group. That is, within the spreadsheet generated by LimeLight, animals are ordered according to group, and the mean, std and sem of the analyzed parameters are calculated and reported separately for each group. In this example, Distance travelled has been exported by Zone, and two groups of 8 animals each have been analyzed separately.
