Open data

The lab is committed to data sharing and providing other researchers with the opportunity to explore new research questions and avenues using our data. Below you find links to EEG, eye-tracking, pupillometry, and other datasets under a Creative Commons license. We continue to add new datasets when the lab publishes new work.

Please cite our work if you use one of our datasets. We also encourage you to reach out to the corresponding and/or senior author and to consider involving them in your project. This may help you get additional insights about the data that may not be detailed in the paper, and it values our contribution, in line with common authorship contributions, for example, Nature's statement: "Each author is expected to have made substantial contributions to the conception or design of the work; or the acquisition, ..."

EEG data set from younger and older adults

​Description: 16-channel Biosemi EEG data. Younger and older adults listened to 4-Hz amplitude-modulated sounds with different envelope shapes. The data set comprises raw data and related information.

EEG data set, including five experiments

​Description: 16-channel Biosemi EEG data from five experiments and behavioral data from one experiment. Participants listened to sounds containing auditory patterns that either repeated or were novel. The data set comprises raw data and related information.
