The most open and sharing labs on OpenNeuro (March 2021 – August 2021)
We are excited to recognize the labs that have shared the most datasets on OpenNeuro in the past 6 months (March 2021 – August 2021). If you have neuroimaging data you would like to share, please consider sharing it on OpenNeuro!
Amsterdam Emotional Memory Lab
The Amsterdam Emotional Memory Lab led by Dr. Merel Kindt has shared three datasets. Dr. Merel Kindt is a professor in the Clinical Psychology Department at the University of Amsterdam. The Amsterdam Emotional Memory Lab focuses on understanding neurobiological and psychological processes underlying the development and plasticity of emotional memory. They harness a variety of paradigms and measures including behavioral experimentation, pharmacological manipulations, physiological measures (fear-potentiated startle, skin conductance, pupillometry, facial electromyography), and functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI).
2nd place (tied)
Jyväskylä Centre for Interdisciplinary Brain Research
Dr. Jarmo Hämäläinen from the Jyväskylä Centre for Interdisciplinary Brain Research has shared two datasets. Dr. Jarmo Hämäläinen is a Professor of Cognitive Neuroscience in the Department of Psychology, University of Jyväskylä. The Jyväskylä Centre for Interdisciplinary Brain Research focuses on brain changes throughout the lifespan in the context of learning and development, interventions and well-being, and physical exercise.
Integrative Decision Neuroscience Lab
The Integrative Decision Neuroscience Lab led by Dr. Joseph Kable has shared two datasets. Dr. Joseph Kable is the Baird Term Professor in the Psychology Department at the University of Pennsylvania. The Integrative Decision Neuroscience Lab seeks to further our understanding of how humans make a decision and to trace out the psychological and neural mechanisms of choice.
The Kuhl Lab led by Dr. Brice Kuhl has shared two datasets. Dr. Brice Kuhl is an associate professor in the Department of Psychology and Institute of Neuroscience at the University of Oregon. The Kuhl Lab studies how the brain enables our ability to remember and the factors that underlie our tendency to forget. They use fMRI combined with powerful analysis methods that extract memories from the neural activity patterns they evoke.
HFO Zurich led by Dr. Johannes Sarnthein has shared two datasets. Dr. Johannes Sarnthein is a professor in the Department of Neurosurgery at University Hospital Zurich. HFO Zurich studies high-frequency oscillations (HFO) in EEG, which are considered to be new biomarkers with which we can detect epileptogenic tissue more accurately than is possible with standard methods. They aim to develop an electronic device that can reliably detect HFO in real-time.
Instituto de Matemática Aplicada del Litoral
Dr. Rubén Spies, a professor at Instituto de Matemática Aplicada del Litoral (IMAL), has shared two datasets. IMAL focuses on research in the fields of Mathematics, Statistics, and Computer Science.
Mood Brain & Development Unit
The Mood Brain & Development Unit led by Dr. Argyrios Stringaris has shared two datasets. Dr. Argyrios Stringaris is a Senior Investigator at NIMH and a Professor of Clinical Psychiatry at Georgetown University. The Mood Brain & Development Unit uses neuroimaging and computational methodology in order to improve the recognition and treatment of adolescents with depression.
We maintain a public spreadsheet capturing several metadata fields for every publicly available dataset, which we used to construct this list. If we have missed something, please let us know! If your lab has historical data, consider sharing and helping your lab be recognized in our next standings! If you have any questions please feel free to reach out to Franklin (firstname.lastname@example.org)
