An Extension of studyforrest.org Dataset
Simultaneous fMRI/eyetracking while movie watching, plus visual localizers
This is an extension of the studyforrest project, all participants previously volunteered for the audio-only Forrest Gump study. The datset is structured in BIDS format, details of the files and metadata can be found at:
Ayan Sengupta, Falko R. Kaule, J. Swaroop Guntupalli, Michael B. Hoffmann, Christian Häusler, Jörg Stadler, Michael Hanke. An extension of the studyforrest dataset for vision research. (submitted for publication)
Michael Hanke, Nico Adelhöfer, Daniel Kottke, Vittorio Iacovella, Ayan Sengupta, Falko R. Kaule, Roland Nigbur, Alexander Q. Waite, Florian J. Baumgartner & Jörg Stadler. Simultaneous fMRI and eye gaze recordings during prolonged natural stimulation – a studyforrest extension. (submitted for publication)

How to obtain the dataset
The dataset is available for download from OpenFMRI (accession number ds000113d).
Alternatively, the studyforrest phase 2 repository on GitHub provides fine-grained access, down to the level of individual files, and allow for tracking future updates.
This repository contains metadata and information on the identity of all included files. However, the actual content of the (sometime large) data files is stored elsewhere. To obtain any dataset component, git-annex is required in addition to Git.
Clone this repository to the desired location.
Enter the directory with the local clone and run:
git annex init
Older versions of git-annex may require you to run the following command immediately afterwards:
git annex enableremote mddatasrc
Now any desired dataset component can be obtained by using the
git annex get
command. To obtain the entire dataset content run:
git annex get .
Keep data up-to-date
If updates to this dataset are made in the future, update any local clone by running:
git annex get .
to fetch all new files.
