Many thanks! Could you please explain the output a bit ? How we can save the slope, and then test all the slopes within each group against 0 via the ttest function?
Linear model Poly1:
f(x) = p1*x + p2
Coefficients (with 95% confidence bounds):
p1 = -0.2864 (-0.3991, -0.1736)
p2 = 0.2222 (0.199, 0.2455)
