The Open MEG Archive (OMEGA) - Projects - open.BIC

Notice: This dataset is under development, and file archives are currently accessed through an external file management system. Check back for updates through early 2018.

In contrast with some other imaging modalities, there is presently a scarcity of fully open resources in magnetoencephalography (MEG) data available to the neuroimaging community. The Open MEG Archive (OMEGA) is the fruit of a collaborative effort by the McConnell Brain Imaging Centre and the Université de Montréal to build a centralised repository in which to regroup MEG data in raw and processed form, for open dissemination.

This free-access continuously expanding repository also contains anatomical MRI volumes, demographic and questionnaire information, and eventually will feature other forms of electrophysiological data (e.g., EEG, field and cell recordings). OMEGA features the technological framework for multi-centric data aggregation, and is amongst the largest freely available resting-state MEG datasets presently available.

Everyone can access and use the data for research and educational purposes. We only require that every outcome (papers, slides, posters, websites, etc.) cites the seminal open-access journal article introducing the project - thank you!
