How do I access 2-photon calcium movies?

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.

  1. Click the “Send us a message” link on the with the list of experiments for which you would like to access calcium movies.
  2. One of our representatives will respond with further instructions, including an address to send your hard drive.
  3. 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.
