I created neural network for binary classification , i have 2 classes and 9 features using an input matrix with a size of [9 981] and target matrix [1 981] . This is my code :
inputs = patientInputs;
targets = patientTargets;
[x,ps] = mapminmax(inputs);
trainFcn = 'trainbr';
% Create a Pattern Recognition Network
hiddenLayerSize =8;
net = patternnet(hiddenLayerSize,trainFcn);
net.divideFcn = 'dividerand'; % Divide data randomly
net.divideMode = 'sample'; % Divide up every sample
net.divideParam.trainRatio = 70/100;
net.divideParam.valRatio = 15/100;
net.divideParam.testRatio = 15/100;
net.performFcn = 'mse';
% Choose Plot Functions
% For a list of all plot functions type: help nnplot
net.plotFcns = {'plotperform','plottrainstate','ploterrhist', ...
'plotconfusion', 'plotroc'};
% Train the Network
net= configure(net,x,t);
[net,tr] = train(net,x,t);
y = net(x);
e = gsubtract(t,y);
performance = perform(net,t,y)
tind = vec2ind(t);
yind = vec2ind(y);
percentErrors = sum(tind ~= yind)/numel(tind);
% Recalculate Training, Validation and Test Performance
trainTargets = t .* tr.trainMask{1};
valTargets = t .* tr.valMask{1};
testTargets = t .* tr.testMask{1};
trainPerformance = perform(net,trainTargets,y)
valPerformance = perform(net,valTargets,y)
testPerformance = perform(net,testTargets,y)
% View the Network
and when i tried to test the neural network with new data using
ptst2 = mapminmax('apply',tst2,ps);
bnewn = sim(net,ptst2);
I don't get the same values like the target i mean 0 or 1 however if i put test data with target 0 i have as a result of bnewn= 0.1835 and with data test having target 1 i got cnewn= 0.816. How can i read this results ? as i understand if it is >0.5 so target=1 else target=0

You don't need the first equation.
net(newinput) and sim(net,newinput)
Hope this helps.

For two class classifiers with scalar 0/1 targets
1. Use LOGSIG as the output function
2. The output class index is given by
outputclassindex = round(output)
outputclassindex = round(net(input))
3. You can use PURELIN as the output function.
However, that allows output to escape
the [ 0,1] constraint
Hope this helps.
