Behavior data on NDW

Hi Allen Community,

I am hoping to use an example data set I found on the Neurodata Without Borders website ( More specifically, the Institute uploaded some pre-release data ( of which I am interested in the behavioral sets (e.g.: behavior_ophys_session_775614751.nwb). I cannot find any description of what exact behavior is recorded here (go-no-go?, 2AFC?, spontaneous viewing?), what are the stimulus / reward conditions, and what do the different sessions cover (learning in the same mouse or different animals?).

I would be very grateful for some detailed description of these experiments. The example data set would be used to develop methodologies for understanding trial-to-trial variability in neuronal responses during behavior.

Many thanks


Glad to hear that you are interested in the behavior experiment data. These data were made available last year to the PyNWB project so that they could provide feedback. We are working very hard right now to generate, document and prepare a lot more production-quality data for release in NWB format later this year. At this time, it is premature to provide a lot more detail on these experiments because there will be so many changes between those pre-release files and the final data set.

Best regards,

Thank you for getting back to me, I’m looking forward to the new release.
Best wishes,
