The findchangepts (link) function (introduced in R2016a) is perfect for this:
D = load('matlab.mat');
data =;
Fs = D.fs;
t = linspace(0, 1, numel(data))/Fs;
cp = findchangepts(data, 'Statistic','std', 'MinDistance',2E+3, 'MaxNumChanges',7);
plot(t, data)
hold on
YL = ylim;
plot([t(cp); t(cp)], YL(:)*ones(1,numel(cp)), '-r', 'LineWidth',1)
hold off

The ‘cp’ vector are the change points corresponding to the vertical red lines in the plot. The findchangepts function takes about 15 seconds to complete this (on my desktop, using tic and toc),
Experiment to get the result you want.
