Hi! I have a cell array A{ 80 x 1 } cells of different dimensions i.e cell1=18x2 , cell2=20x2, cell3=34x2 etc.I want to extract each cell from the cell array A and convert each of them to a matrix. i.e Answer shpold be :A1=the 18 X2 matrix of cell1 A2= the 20x2 matrix of cell 2 etc or A(:,:1)=18x2 A(:,:2)=2-x2 etc. I would prefer if possible to have 80 matrices A1,A2,A3......A80. Thank you.

@Dimitris Pasias: read and understand this:
Then learn to use indexing, and/or cell arrays.

Here is one of many answers on this forum that discusses the reason why this is a bad idea.
