Data were provided in part by the Human Connectome Project, WU-Minn Consortium (Principal Investigators: David Van Essen and Kamil Ugurbil; 1U54MH091657) funded by the 16 NIH Institutes and Centers that support the NIH Blueprint for Neuroscience Research; and by the McDonnell Center for Systems Neuroscience at Washington University.

Data Use Terms

Access to all data is subject to the WU-Minn HCP Consortium Open Access Data Use Terms. 

Please note from the above data use terms: “I will comply with all relevant rules and regulations imposed by my institution. This may mean that I need my research to be approved or declared exempt by a committee that oversees research on human subjects, e.g. my IRB or Ethics Committee.”

The use and dissemination at Vanderbilt of these de-identified data has been approved by the Vanderbilt Institutional Review Board as non-human human subjects research under protocol #180835 (approved use 25, 2018).
