Description

Function to run a heuristic t test of the difference between two generalized correlations.

Usage

1
heurist(rxy, ryx, n)

Arguments

rxy

generalized correlation r*(x|y) where y is the kernel cause.

ryx

generalized correlation r*(y|x) where x is the kernel cause.

n

Sample size needed to determine the degrees of freedom for the t test.

Value

Prints the t statistics and p-values.

Note

This function requires Revele's R package called ‘psych’ in memory. This test is known to be conservative (i.e., often fails to reject the null hypothesis of zero difference between the two generalized correlation coefficients.)
