Hi everyone i have a 5x2000x5 cell and i want to take the mean over it in the following way:
when i take yf= (y{1,1000,1}+y{2,1000,1}+y{3,1000,1}+y{4,1000,1}+y{5,1000,1})/5 for example i get what i want which is the mean over the first index y{i,1000,1} while keeping the second and third index constant.
But when i try to do this with the next command y=(y{mean(n),1000,1}) or even y = (y{sum(n),1000,1})/5 I get a different result.
Does anyone know how can i do this correctly without having to type manually all the values?
(The sizes in the cells are 1x99 double).

y = repmat({randn(1,99)},5,2000,5); % making a cell array like yours
yf = mean(vertcat(y{:,1000,1}),1) % performing the mean like you want to do
yf = 1×99
