Figure 3

Distribution of entropy values. Distribution of entropy values for medial-lateral postural sway for infants who are typically developing versus those who have delayed development. Top plot (t-score = -1.94) is approximate entropy with r = 0.2 std, lag = 4, m = 2. Bottom plot (t-score = -3.48) is symbolic entropy with word length = 6, thresholds of -3 std and +1 std. Several of the subjects have the same symbolic entropy values as other subjects; the same number time series were analyzed for both top and bottom plots. The populations (DD and TD) are much better separated by use of symbolic entropy than approximate entropy.
