This dataset contains the raw MRI data used to build and validate the macaque connectome in TheVirtualBrain (, a software platform for large-scale network modelling. It includes T1, DWI and resting-state fMRI scans from 9 macaques. In addition to the raw data, we also provide preprocessed derivatives.

Other derivatives such as the macaque connectome, associated ROI parcellation and other data useful for large-scale modelling in TheVirtualBrain can be found at (

Details of this dataset can be found in Shen K, Bezgin G, Schirner M, Ritter P, Everling S, McIntosh AR (2018) A macaque connectome for large-scale network simulations in TheVirtualBrain. bioRxiv 480905, doi:, which should be cited when publishing work using this dataset. Additional details on fMRI acquisition and preprocessing can be found in Ghahremani M, Hutchison RM, Menon RS, Everling S (2017) Frontoparietal functional connectivity in the common marmoset. Cerebral Cortex 27 (8): 3890-3905. Additional details on DWI acquisition, preprocessing and tractography can be found in Shen K, Goulas A, Grayson DS, Eusebio J, Gati JS, Menon RS, McIntosh AR, Everling S (2019) Exploring the limits of network topology estimation using diffusion-based tractography and tracer studies in the macaque cortex.
