Sergio:

1. You do not have a "repeated measures linear model" .

2. This list is not designed to replace your own efforts to learn the

necessary R background, in this case, factor coding and contrasts in linear

models. I would suggest you spend some time with any of the many fine R

linear model tutorials that can be found on the web. Here is one place to

look for suggestions:

https://www.rstudio.com/online-learning/#R . But

just googling around you'll probably find something that may suit even

better.

3. This list is primarily for R programming help, not statistics help

(although they do sometimes intersect). For the latter, try a statistics

site like stats.stackexchange.com .

4. Finally, as always, consulting with a local statistical resource, if

available, is always worth considering.

HTH.

Cheers,

Bert
