I’m not quite sure what you want.
See if this works for you:
M = randi(99, 10);
RM = reshape(M, 10, 2, [])
Mmean = mean(RM,2)

I forgot a squeeze call. This will do what you want, and should work with any matrix:
M = randi(99, 10); % Create Data
RM = reshape(M, size(M,1), 2, []) % Reshape
Mmean = squeeze(mean(RM,2)) % Desired Result

@Thorsten average of each two columns should give me 1 column . means average of each element . Let say if I have 100 columns in my original data, it should give me 50 columns
