Validation Pending


The MPI-Leipzig Mind-Brain-Body dataset contains MRI and behavioral data from 318 participants. Datasets for all participants include at least a structural quantitative T1-weighted image and a single 15-minute eyes-open resting-state fMRI session.

The participants took part in one or two extended protocols: Leipzig Mind-Body-Brain Interactions (LEMON) and Neuroanatomy & Connectivity Protocol (N&C). The data from LEMON protocol is included in the ‘ses-01’ subfolder; the data from N&C protocol in ‘ses-02’ subfolder.

LEMON focuses on structural imaging. 228 participants were scanned. In addition to the quantitative T1-weighted image, the participants also have a structural T2-weighted image (226 participants), a diffusion-weighted image with 64 directions (228) and a 15-minute eyes-open resting-state session (228). New imaging sequences were introduced into the LEMON protocol after data acquisition for approximately 110 participants. Before the change, a low-resolution 2D FLAIR images were acquired for clinical purposes (110). After the change, 2D FLAIR was replaced with high-resolution 3D FLAIR (117). The second addition was the acquisition of gradient-echo images (112) that can be used for Susceptibility-Weighted Imaging (SWI) and Quantitative Susceptibility Mapping (QSM).

The N&C protocol focuses on resting-state fMRI data. 199 participants were scanned with this protocol; 109 participants also took part in the LEMON protocol. Structural data was not acquired for the overlapping LEMON participants. For the unique N&C participants, only a T1-weighted and a low-resolution FLAIR image were acquired. Four 15-minute runs of eyes-open resting-state are the main component of N&C; they are complete for 194 participants, three participants have 3 runs, one participant has 2 runs and one participant has a single run. Due to a bug in multiband sequence used in this protocol, the echo time for N&C resting-state is longer than in LEMON — 39.4 ms vs 30 ms.

Forty-five participants have complete imaging data: quantitative T1-weighted, T2-weighted, high-resolution 3D FLAIR, DWI, GRE and 75 minutes of resting-state. Both gradient-echo and spin-echo field maps are available in both datasets for all EPI-based sequences (rsfMRI and DWI).

Extensive behavioral data was acquired in both protocols. They include trait and state questionnaires, as well as behavioral tasks. Here we only list the tasks; more extenstive descriptions are available in the manuscripts.

Hi, thank you very much for this extremely interesting dataset! May I ask you, please, when the LEMON questionnaires will be available? REALLY THANK YOU,

Dear Uploader, many thanks for sharing this dataset. Do you please know whether there is an automatic way to download more than one image a time? For instance, if i would like to download only the T1 images of every subjects, is there an automatic way to do it, or I need to download them subject by subject manually? Many thanks. Cristina

Thank you for your comment and raising this issue. The size of this dataset uncompressed is: 390GB.

Hi, many thanks for your reply. Your dataset is really interesting. I have two additional questions: 1. are all the participants acquired with the same scanner? Is the scanner of ses-01 the same one of ses-02? 2. is there a way to download the anatomical images only? Many many thanks.

Hi, Thank you for your questions. 1. That is a good question. I found this bio archive that appears to explain the acquisition procedure: . But I am not certain if they were all scanned with the same scanner. 2. At this time there is not a way to only download the anatomical images. You would have to download the dataset and then select out the anatomical images.

Hello, thanks for making this dataset open it looks really interesting. I am just having a look at this and I see that it only seems to contain resting state data, but the main description does not say that the task data are excluded. Could somebody clarify this please?

Hello, Thanks for sharing this data set. I have a question regarding dwi data and in particular slice acquisition time/acquisition scheme. Is there a possibility to have the complete .jason file with this information? It is now not included in the current .jason file and I need it for preprocessing. Thanks a lot

Hi, is it possible to have the precise ages of the subjects during the MR sessions ? (or at least a 2-3 years bins ?) Thank you for your great MRI data ! Have a nice day.
