Requesting Electrophysiological Data

From Computational Memory Lab
Jump to: navigation, search

Electrophysiological data requests are made from the Ephys data archive page. Clicking the "Ephys 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.)

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 if you are using FTP, be sure that you have followed all of Box's instructions for FTP access, including enabling it in your account.
