We firmly believe in reproducible research and want to make our raw materials and de-identified data available to other researchers. We are quite interested in collaborations with other researchers, as well as having other researchers use our data for new analyses or baselines.

We are significantly interested in other researchers making use of the de-identified fMRI and fNRSI scan data gathered at our institution. For example, other researchers might carry out different analyses on the same data or use this data as a baseline in subsequent experiments.
Brain scan data is covered by the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA).
