I ran 3dTshift on a dataset and am trying to
interpret the results. The offsets and
commandline are appended below. I am looking
at timecourses from slice 17, before and
after 3dTshift, as an example. Slice 17 was
acquired quite a bit later than slice 16,
since the acq order was 0,2,4...1,3,5....
So, to align slice 17 with slice 16 I expect
it needs to be interpolated to create points
earlier in time. When I compare the original
to corrected timecourse, the corrected points
appear to have been computed by interpolating
with points later in time. This gives the
effect of having the corrected timecourse
appear to have shifted backwards in time.
But for negative offsets, (-0.5 for slice
17), don't I want corrected points to be
interpolated from points previous in time,
so the effect is that the corrected curve
appears to shift forwards in time ? What is
the meaning of the sign of the fractional shift ? Are the results of 3dTshift
interpretable by this kind of visual
inspection (the apparent interpolation and
curve shifts are tiny effects) ?
