    2. Enterface'06: Enterface'06 Project 07: EEG(64 Channels) + fNIRS + face video, Includes 16 subjects, where emotions were elicited through selected subset of IAPS dataset.
    3. Imagined Emotion: 31 subjects, subjects listen to voice recordings that suggest an emotional feeling and ask subjects to imagine an emotional scenario or to recall an experience in which they have felt that emotion before.
    4. NeuroMarketing: 25 subjects, 14 electrodes, Like/Dislike on commercial e-commerce products over 14 categories with 3 images each. Article for the dataset: Analysis of EEG signals and its application to neuromarketing. [Article]
    5. SEED: 15 subjects were shown video clips eliciting positive/negative/neutral emotion and EEG was recorded over 62 channels.
    6. SEED-IV: 15 subjects were shown video clips ellicity happy/sad/neutral/fear emotions and EEG was recorded over 62 channels (with eye-tracking) for 3 sessions per subject (24 trials per session).
    7. SEED-VIG: Vigilance labels with EEG data in a simulated driving task. 18 electrodes and eye-tracking included.
  • Error-Related Potentials (ErrP)

    1. BCI-NER Challenge: 26 subjects, 56 EEG Channels for a P300 Speller task, and labeled dataset for the response elicited when P300 decodes a correct or incorrect letter.

    2. Monitoring ErrP in a target selection task: 6 subjects with 64 EEG electrodes, watching a cursor move towards a target square, and elicited responses are labeled based on whether the cursor moves in right or wrong direction. [Dataset Description]

    3. ErrPs during continuous feedback: 10 subjects with 28 EEG electrodes, playing a video game to study execution and outcome error. [Dataset Part-1] [Dataset Part-2]

  • Visually Evoked Potentials (VEPs)

    1. c-VEP BCI: 9 subjects, 32 EEG Channels for a VEP BCI speller (32 characters) task, and labeled dataset for the response elicited for the label associated with the speller. [Dataset description] [Published article]

    2. c-VEP BCI with dry electrodes: 9 subjects, 15 dry-EEG Channels for a VEP BCI speller (32 characters) task, and labeled dataset for the response elicited for the label associated with the speller. [Article]

    3. SSVEP - Visual Search/Discrimination and Handshake: Includes 3 different tests, (i) Five Box visual test: attnded and unattended disc and square based stimuli, (ii) visual search within natural images: search of a yellow dot stimuli in B&W natural images, (iii) hand shake test: showing left/right hand closed/open images. 30 subjects, 14 electrodes. [Article 1] [Article 2] [More Dataset: Dataset 2]

  • Miscellaneous

    1. MNIST Brain Digits: EEG data when a digit(0-9) is shown to the subject, recorded 2s for a single subject using Minwave, EPOC, Muse, Insight. Includes over 1.2M samples.
    2. Imagenet Brain: A random image is shown (out of 14k images from the Imagenet ILSVRC2013 train dataset) and EEG signals are recorded for 3s for one subject. Includes over 70k samples.
    3. Working Memory: Participants briefly observe an array containing multiple English characters SET (500ms) and maintain the information for three seconds. A TEST character is then presented and participants respond by press of a button if TEST charter matches one of the characters in the SET. 15 students, 64 electrodes and 500Hz sampling rate. Only a small subset of data is available publicly. [Original Paper] [Further Analysis in ICLR]
