 +=====  FT_STATFUN_ACTVSBLT =====
 +Note that this reference documentation is identical to the help that is displayed in MATLAB when you type "help ft_statfun_actvsblT"​.
 +  <a href=/​reference/​ft_statfun_actvsblT><​font color=green>​FT_STATFUN_ACTVSBLT</​font></​a>​ calculates the activation-versus-baseline T-statistic on the
 +  biological data (the dependent variable), using the information on the independent
 +  variable (ivar) in design.
 +  Note that it does not make sense to use this test statistic when baseline
 +  correction was performed by subtracting the mean of the baseline period from the
 +  whole data (for ERP data) or by dividing by the mean (for TFR data). If baseline
 +  correction is desired, you should subtract the full baseline and activation period.
 +  Use this function by calling one of the high-level statistics functions as
 +    [stat] = ft_timelockstatistics(cfg,​ timelock1, timelock2, ...)
 +    [stat] = ft_freqstatistics(cfg,​ freq1, freq2, ...)
 +    [stat] = ft_sourcestatistics(cfg,​ source1, source2, ...)
 +  with the following configuration option
 +    cfg.statistic = '​ft_statfun_actvsblT'​
 +  Configuration options
 +    cfg.computestat ​   = '​yes'​ or '​no',​ calculate the statistic (default='​yes'​)
 +    cfg.computecritval = '​yes'​ or '​no',​ calculate the critical values of the test statistics (default='​no'​)
 +    cfg.computeprob ​   = '​yes'​ or '​no',​ calculate the p-values (default='​no'​)
 +  The following options are relevant if cfg.computecritval='​yes'​ and/or
 +  cfg.computeprob='​yes'​.
 +    cfg.alpha = critical alpha-level of the statistical test (default=0.05)
 +    cfg.tail ​ = -1, 0, or 1, left, two-sided, or right (default=1)
 +                cfg.tail in combination with cfg.computecritval='​yes'​
 +                determines whether the critical value is computed at
 +                quantile cfg.alpha (with cfg.tail=-1),​ at quantiles
 +                cfg.alpha/2 and (1-cfg.alpha/​2) (with cfg.tail=0),​ or at
 +                quantile (1-cfg.alpha) (with cfg.tail=1).
 +  Design specification
 +    cfg.ivar ​ = row number of the design that contains the labels of the conditions that must be
 +                compared (default=1). The first condition, indicated by 1, corresponds to the
 +                activation period and the second, indicated by 2, corresponds to the baseline period.
 +    cfg.uvar ​ = row number of design that contains the labels of the units-of-observation (subjects or trials)
 +                (default=2). The labels are assumed to be integers ranging from 1 to
 +                the number of units-of-observation.
