We have released several MRI datasets for open use. Below are descriptions, as well as links to further information, code, and the data itself.

We have also been involved in the International Neuroimaging Data-sharing Initiative and the Primate Neuroimaging data-exchange (PRIME-DE), as well as preprocessing initiatives to facilitate interdisciplinary collaboration.
