### JRP between binary and continuous time series

Posted:

**Fri Dec 5, 2014 16:37**Hi at all,

I started to experiment with the crp toolbox (thanks for this nice toolbox btw) and want to apply RP to the analysis of fMRI data.

I have two time series. The first consists of 1's and 0's and represents a stimulus on/offset and the second is a continuous time series consisting of fMRI data. Since those two time series can not be considered part of the same system, JRP should be the choice here I figured. I attached a picture of my JRP for which I used fan at 0.1.

I'm a little bit confused about how to interpret the bottom part (<50) where there seems to be a higher amount of recurrence points.

More over, I'm not sure if it is even possible to JRP those two time series, since one of them is binary. Has anyone done something like this before and is it a valid approach?

I appreciate any helpful commments and opinions on this matter
