Clustering techniques have gained great popularity in neuroscience data analysis especially in analysing data from complex experiment paradigm where it is hard to apply traditional model-based method. However, when employing clustering analysis, many clustering algorithms are available nowadays and even with an individual clustering algorithm, choices like parameter settings and distance metrics are very likely to have impacts on the final clustering results. In our previous work, we have demonstrated the benefits of integrating clustering results from multiple clustering algorithms, which provides more stable, reproducible, and complete clustering solutions. In this paper, we aim to further inspect the possible influences from the choices of distance metrics in clustering analysis.
