Whole brain resting-state fMRI data from 227 healthy adults between 18 and 78 years old acquired at a 3T clinical MRI scanner. The tar file contains 227 compressed nifti files. The 1st alphabet in the file names indicates the gender of the volunteers (f for female and m for male). The 2nd and 3rd digits indicate the age of volunteers. The remaining alphabets are randomized to encode individual subjects. The original images were reconstructed into dicom format and converted into nifti file format.


Steps to reproduce

The MRI data acquisition was conducted on a whole-body 3T clinical MRI scanner (Magnetom Trio, Siemens Medical Solutions, Erlangen, Germany) equipped with a 32-channel phased-array receiving head coil. All data was acquired at Karolinska University Hospital, Huddinge, Stockholm, between noon and 5:00 PM. The MRI data acquisition protocol included the following scanning sessions: (1) 3-plane localizer; (2) Conventional clinical MRI scans including 3D T1-weighted MPRAGE, T2 and FLAIR scans; (3) A session of 375 s long R-fMRI measurements. The main acquisition parameters for the R-fMRI data included the following: TE/TR 35/2500 ms, flip angle = 90°, 34 slices of 3.5 mm thick, FOV = 225 mm, matrix size = 76 × 76, data acquisition acceleration with GRAPPA parallel imaging method (iPAT = 2), and 150 dynamic timeframes. The first 5 timeframes were excluded to ensure that the signal intensity achieved steady state.
