I've used findpeaks to isolate the largest peak in my signal. I wanted some help in finding the duration of the peak aka the starting and ending points of this peak, so that I could calculate area under curve? Right now Im having to visually inspect and pick arbitrary points to define this start and end points.

Experiment with ths ischange function, and if you have the Signal Processing Toolbox, the findchangepts function.

widths are an optional output from findpeaks:
[pks,locs,widths,~] = findpeaks(data);

Alternatively, you could potentially define the starting and ending points using findpeaks on the negative of your data.

I believe that it finds the widths from the half prominence or half height, which would not accurately characterize the starting and ending points.
Also, I would like to find the index (x values) of the peak based on start and end points

I had a similar issue, although I was working with biological signals. You could try the function I wrote to solve my problem: https://uk.mathworks.com/matlabcentral/fileexchange/81066-breathtimes?s_tid=srchtitle

Hi, I'm doing my research and meet the same problems as you. Have you calculated the peak duration? Can you share to me how to calculate the peak duration? Thank you so much in advance
