I have two vectors Y and Yprd, each one is 1x602 double. Y contains the real data which represent the class label either one or zero. Yprd contains the prediction of the data which real numbers. Here is an example Y=[0 1 1 1 0] Yprd=[0.456 0.986 -0.008 0.987 0.0002] I would like to compute the accuracy of the model (or error) when at Yprd vector any values greater than 0.5 can be one and less than can zero.

What model? I don't see that you have posed any model at all here. Before you can talk about prediction error, you must have a model.

I used neural network model, I built it myself as I want some specific operations.

Ymodel = 1*(Y>.5) + 0*(Y<=.5); % The model from the predictions (right half unnecessary)
p = sum(abs(Y-Ymodel))/size(Y,2); % Fractional error

The usual convention for classifiers is to have c-dimensional {0,1} unit vectors for targets and nonnegative c-dimensional unit vectors for outputs
The relationship between the column vectors and the class indices are given by the functions
see their help and documentation.
Hope this helps.
