More #opendata highlights: Brain scans

Wednesday, November 29, 2017

Because I've had a gap in blogging over the last few months, I thought I would ease back into things by highlighting public health-related data sets going back through Data is Plural, one edition at a time.

The August 16 edition of Data is Plural contains a data set with two collections of MRI brain scans:
Brain scans. The Open Access Series of Imaging Studies (OASIS) project is “aimed at making MRI data sets of the brain freely available to the scientific community,” with the goal of “[facilitating] future discoveries in basic and clinical neuroscience.” So far, the project has published two collections: a cross-sectional dataset of scans from 416 people, ages 18 to 96; and a longitudinal dataset, based on 150 people aged 60 to 96, each of whom were scanned at least two different times.
