fMRIPrep Tutorial #1: Downloading the Data¶
For this course we will be analyzing an fMRI dataset that used the Flanker task - the same one that we used for the AFNI tutorial. The dataset can be found here on the OpenNeuro website, an online repository for neuroimaging data.
Download the dataset by clicking on the “Download” button at the top of the page. The dataset is about 2 Gigabytes, and comes in a zipped folder. Extract it by double-clicking on the folder.
After you have downloaded and unzipped the dataset, click on the Next button for an overview of the experimental task used in this study.
Alternative Download Options¶
If the download button doesn’t work, try using the Amazon Web Services (AWS) option. Go to this page and download the appropriate AWS client for your operating system. Once it has been installed, open a Terminal, navigate to the Desktop, and type the following:
aws s3 sync --no-sign-request s3://openneuro.org/ds000102 ds000102-download/
It should take about half an hour to download.
