Electrophysiological data requests are made from the EEG data archive page. Clicking the "EEG data" link for the desired publication will bring you to a web form. Fill this form out completely; incomplete information could delay your request.

After you submit the form, a member of the Computational Memory Lab will review your request, and in all likelihood, grant you access, replying with instructions for accessing the data. These instructions are below.

Due to their size, the EEG datasets are stored on To access them, you will need a Box account. If you don't already have one, you can sign up for one here. (The free one is fine for web and sync client access.)

Once you have a Box account, please e-mail with the e-mail address associated with your Box account. If you haven't already done so, request access to your desired data set through the Electrophysiological Data archive page.

When we grant your data request, we will give you read-only access to the folder containing the relevant data. You will then see this data in your Box account online.

The primary method of downloading data is using Box's desktop sync client. Note that once you have the data, you do not need to keep the client running. You can stop synchronization and then move the data to whatever location you'd like.

If you have a Business or Enterprise Box account already (i.e., through your university or company), we find that the fastest way to access large datasets from Box is through FTP. You can find Box's instructions for FTP access here, and we recommend FileZilla as an FTP client.

Note: We will probably not be able to help troubleshoot technical issues with getting the data from Box, but be sure that you have followed all of Box's instructions for FTP access, including enabling it in your account.

Anatomical Information

Along with the shared folder of electrophysiological and behavioral data, we will also share a folder containing anatomical information for each patient's ECoG channels. You will be able to cross-reference them by unique patient identifier.

Please note that some patients currently only have monopolar or bipolar montage information, but we hope to have both forms of coordinates available for all patients in a few days.
