Hi, I have n by 1 matrix, I want to splitt this matrix into systematically into several smaller matrices of the same dimension. For example let A=transpose([1:1:12552), I want to make other matrices of (24 by 1) from the A. Is there a short command I can use? I have tried 'mat2cell' function but it returns error. Is there something am missing?

A = transpose(1:12552);
C = num2cell(reshape(A,24,[]),1)
C = 1×523 cell array

You can eaily access the content of the cell array C using indexing, e.g. the second cell:
C{2}
ans = 24×1

" Is there a fucntion that I can use to calculate mean of each submatrix within C, so as to end up with 523 by 1 matrix?"
The simple and efficient MATLAB approach would avoid the cell array:
A = transpose(1:12552);
B = mean(reshape(A,24,[]),1).'
B = 523×1
