I’ve searched and haven’t found anything- in the BIDS scope, is there any language, or any agreed-upon wording for derived motion measures or parameters? For example, 1D data of framewise displacement, per time point, from an fMRI time series.
Specifically, other than having it be a TSV file, would like to know if there is any convention for the final *_suffix.TSV for such derivative data.
_timeseries.tsv is the generic container. BEP 012 also permits _timeseries.tsv to be broken into semantically meaningful groups that have constraints on permissible columns. Motion-related time series can be put in _motion.tsv.
Oh, one more question before I mark solved- we want to include many motion-related, summary/calculated single values in one TSV, each one labeled (which would not be a time series, just a column or row of many unrelated values).
Would it be BIDS compliant to name this *_desc-summary_motion.tsv, or does *_motion.tsv imply that it is a time series?
If I were going to put summary values for a given scan, I would either drop them into each scan’s JSON or use the BIDS scans.tsv concept. AFAIK nobody is currently using those as derivatives, but it should be perfectly valid.
