I have two groups, Controls and Patients, with 6 measurements for each such as speed, amplitude and so on. I'd like to examine whether these measures are different for the 2 groups. So firstly I'd calculate the Mann-Whitney U-test between controls and patients for speed, and then for separation and so on until I have run 6 comparisons.
I'm aware that I should correct this for multiple comparisons, but am unsure of the best way. I'm playing around in R with the pairwise.wilcox.test function but it only seems to work in cases where there's 1 group and 1 set of readings.
Firstly, just so I can search more easily in the future, what's the name of my experimental setup called? And what's the best way to adjust for multiple comparisons in R?
