Awake Rat rsfMRI Database

The database contains resting-state fMRI data from 90 awake rats, obtained in a 7T scanner with a well-established awake imaging paradigm (Nanyin Zhang et al, 2010. J. Neurosci. Methods) that avoids anesthesia interference with rsfMRI data. Both raw and preprocessed data are included, as well as intermediate data from the preprocessing. ICA denoising similar to ICA-FIX was applied. A coregistered Swanson atlas, ROI seedmaps, and group ICA (n=28) are also included.

The database is acquired and maintained by the Translational Neuroimaging and Systems Neuroscience Lab (TNSNL) ( at the Penn State University.

The data is also available at
