There are two ways to access the motion-corrected calcium movies for experiments in the Brain Observatory.
1. Connect to our S3 Bucket on AWS
We have all of the Brain Observatory data, including motion-corrected calcium movies in an S3 bucket on AWS.
You can find instructions for connecting to our data on AWS below.
2. Send us a hard drive
If you don’t want to analyze the data in the cloud and would prefer to analyze a few movies on your local workstation, you may prefer to send us a hard drive.
Each experiment is approximately 60GB, so, a 1TB hard drive can store up to 16 experiments.
- Click the “Send us a message” link on the http://observatory.brain-map.org with the list of experiments for which you would like to access calcium movies.
- One of our representatives will respond with further instructions, including an address to send your hard drive.
- We will return the hard drive to you as soon as possible.
Send us a hard drive with sufficient capacity for the motion-corrected movies you are requesting, along with the experiment IDs for each movie.
