List of openly available datasets

This is a collection of links to openly available datasets. There is a separate page with links to other databases (e.g. for stimulus generation and evaluation).
If you would like add something, please contact <Olaf DOT Hauk AT mrc-cbu DOT cam DOT ac DOT uk> or <Johan DOT Carlin AT mrc-cbu DOT cam DOT ac DOT uk>.
You must contact our IT department (<it-help AT mrc-cbu DOT cam DOT ac DOT uk>) before downloading any large datasets at the CBU. Some open datasets may already be available at the CBU.
Note that some datasets require registration or licensing before you are allowed to access them.
