How to append values to an array in for loop?

18 views (last 30 days)
rotation_time_by_direction = [];
for i = 1:10:length(direction_table.rodent_RecordingTime)-10
direction_change = ones(1,10)';
for j = 1:10
direction_change(j,1) = abs(direction_table.direction(i,1)-direction_table.direction(i+j,1));
threshold_degree = 100;
if any(direction_change > threshold_degree)
rotation_time_by_direction = cat(1, rotation_time_by_direction, direction_table.rodent_RecordingTime(i));
end
end
end
I am trying append the rodent_RecordingTime values to rotation_time_by_direction array when rotation is more than 100 degrees over next 10 time steps. But I am not sure why the rodent_RecordingTime is appending to the array. I have attached the variables if you want to look at it. Any help is appreciated.

Sorry, I didn't get your comment. If you are asking what do I mean by "But I am not sure why the rodent_RecordingTime is appending to the array.", you can consider it redundant.

Thank you everyone for your comments. I kept on trying with append method, and I think this gives me the result I wanted.
rotation_time_by_direction = [];
for i = 1:10:height(direction_table)-10
direction_change = ones(1,10)';
for j = 1:10
direction_change(j,1) = abs(direction_table.direction(i,1)-direction_table.direction(i+j,1));
end
threshold_degree = 100;
if any(direction_change > threshold_degree)
rotation_time_by_direction = [rotation_time_by_direction; direction_table.rodent_RecordingTime(i)];
end
end
n_direction_table = direction_table{ismember(direction_table.rodent_RecordingTime,rotation_time_by_direction), :};
