Glossing over minute details:

1. Standardize your inputs and targets using zscore (zeromean/unitvariance)
2. Randomly divide your data into a training set, a hold out validation set and a test set.
3. Set a training goal of MSEtrngoal = 0.01*mean(var(ttrn'))
4. Loop over 10 or more spread value candidates.
5. Choose the best net using MSEval
6. If unsatisfactory, go back to 4, otherwise
5. Obtain a final evaluation on the validation set choice using the test set.
7. If unsatisfactory, go back to 2

Hope this helps
