# Fitting an ANOVA with two repeated measures factors in MATLAB

MATLAB code below for two repeated measures factors written by Adam Schurger and taken from here.

Clicking on the 'overview' tab at the website above gives further details.

```function stats = rm_anova2(Y,S,F1,F2,FACTNAMES)
%
% function stats = rm_anova2(Y,S,F1,F2,FACTNAMES)
%
% Two-factor, within-subject repeated measures ANOVA.
% For designs with two within-subject factors.
%
% Parameters:
%    Y          dependent variable (numeric) in a column vector
%    S          grouping variable for SUBJECT
%    F1         grouping variable for factor #1
%    F2         grouping variable for factor #2
%    FACTNAMES  a cell array w/ two char arrays: {'factor1', 'factor2'}
%
%    Y should be a 1-d column vector with all of your data (numeric).
%    The grouping variables should also be 1-d numeric, each with same
%    length as Y. Each entry in each of the grouping vectors indicates the
%    level # (or subject #) of the corresponding entry in Y.
%
% Returns:
%    stats is a cell array with the usual ANOVA table:
%      Source / ss / df / ms / F / p
%
% Notes:
%    Program does not do any input validation, so it is up to you to make
%    sure that you have passed in the parameters in the correct form:
%
%       Y, S, F1, and F2 must be numeric vectors all of the same length.
%
%       There must be at least one value in Y for each possible combination
%       of S, F1, and F2 (i.e. there must be at least one measurement per
%       subject per condition).
%
%       If there is more than one measurement per subject X condition, then
%       the program will take the mean of those measurements.

CELLS = cell(a,b,n); % this will hold the data for each subject X condition
MEANS = zeros(a,b,n); % this will hold the means for each subj X condition

% Calculate means for each subject X condition.
% Keep data in CELLS, because in future we may want to allow options for
% how to compute the means (e.g. leaving out outliers > 3stdev, etc...).
