The description of the datasets can be found here. The dataset consists of fMRI scans, PET scans, structural MRI scans, cortical segmentations from Freesurfer, EEG, clinical measures, neurocognitive measures, and genetic data (SNPs) on a set of 28 subjects. The details of the fMRI tasks and analyses are found here.
The imaging, genetic, clinical and cognitive datasets have been approved for sharing with the general research public in de-identified form (as of 1/27/05). The fMRI and structural MRI data are in Analyze (SPM2) format.

BRAINS/Slicer Workshop, March 23 2005 Hosted at UCI.FBIRN:retreat2005#Wednesday_.28Optional.29
Transdisciplinary Imaging Genetics Center Training Meeting- February 8, 2005 Preparation for the NAMIC All Hands Meeting. Data has been uploaded and the Data Repository information confirmed. Identified the following needs for the data that have been uploaded:
1)Region of interest (anatomical) definitions--Jim F. has defined the most interesting ones in Talairach/Brodmann nomenclature.
2)non-linear interactions in genetic data
3)Circuitry analyses (SEM)--have a post-doc working on that now.
First International Imaging Genetics Conference- January 17-18, 2005 The Beckman Center of the National Academy of Science, Irvine, CA.
The International Imaging Genetics Conference, targeting physicians and scientific researchers, brought together national and international experts in neuroimaging, genetics, data-mining, visualization and statistics. This international symposium was held to initially assess the state of the art in the various established fields of genetics and imaging, and to facilitate the transdisciplinary fusion needed to optimize the development of the emerging field of Imaging Genetics. The conference featured presentations from investigators world-wide and held in-depth discussions within the emerging field of Imaging Genetics.
