relBackgroundLL {EffectsRelBaseline}R Documentation

Log-likelihood ratio of grouped responses being drawn from a background distribution.

Description

Compute the log-likelihood ratio of the grouped responses being obtained from a background distribution given its mean and variance.

Usage

relBackgroundLL(resp, groups, backMean, backVar)

Arguments

resp

response values

groups

grouping variables (will be treated as factors)

backMean

mean of the background distribution

backVar

variance of the background distribution

Value

log-likelihood ratio

Note

This is the log-likelihood ratio of the changes from background test (CBT). It is included here for comparison.
