It's not "large" either. Before I read it I thought that he was talking hundreds of millions of elements, not five hundred and something. (And there is a "bug" for the case of calculating the mean for large numbers of singles)

A = rand(3,192);
n = 9;
s = size(A);
out = squeeze(nanmean(reshape([A nan(s(1),mod(-s(2),n))],s(1),n,[]),2));
out = blockproc(A,[1 n],@(x)mean(;
k = s(2) - rem(s(2),n);
out = [squeeze(mean( reshape(A(:,1:k),s(1),[]),2 )) , mean(A(:,k+1:end),2)];

A = rand(3, 192);
B = reshape(A(:, 1:189), 3, 9, []);
C = squeeze(mean(B, 2));
