Finding the mean of each column of each double within a structure

1 view (last 30 days)
Hello! I would like to find the mean of each double within this structure (named beh_data). Each double contains 4 columns. I would like to have the mean of each column (ideally the 2nd, 3rd and 4th column only), for each double.
I have tried various things eg:
MeanMovementPerTrial = [];
for i = 1:length (beh_data)
MeanMovementPerTrial(i) = structfun (@mean,beh_data.data(i),'UniformOutput',false);
end
Or even simpler stuff, but I keep getting different errors. Do you know how I can do this? Thank you =)

Something like
M=arrayfun(@(s)mean(s.Data(:,2:end)),beh_data,'UniformOutput',0).'; % calculate the means
M=cellfun(@(c)struct('Means',c),M,'UniformOutput',1); % put them in a new struct array
Use arrayfun to iterate over the struct array, returning a cell array of the means. Then convert those to a new struct array by operating on each via cellfun.
If one were really a glutton for trying to play "MATLAB golf", see if can figure out and keep straight doing both in one line... :)
