THINGS-data: A multimodal collection of large-scale datasets for investigating object representations in brain and behavior

Posted on 2023-01-17 - 19:30 authored by Martin Hebart

Here we provide all datasets which are part of the THINGS-data collection comprising functional MRI, magnetoencephalographic recordings, and 4.70 million similarity judgments in response to thousands of photographic images for up to 1,854 object concepts. THINGS-data is unique in its breadth of richly-annotated objects, allowing for testing countless hypotheses at scale while assessing the reproducibility of previous findings. Beyond the unique insights promised by each individual dataset, the multimodality of THINGS-data allows combining datasets for a much broader view into object processing than previously possible.
