tvb-data - Extended Dataset


  • 1. TVB Foundation


Various demonstration datasets for use with The Virtual Brain project are provided here.

Here you will find:

  • compatible file/folder structures that can be uploaded through the web interface of TVB.  For this usage scenario, you should just download, and unzip the current package. Independently, download TVB_Distribution from and from its web GUI upload files from this unzipped folder, at need. 
  • the default datasets used when working in console or library mode. For this usage scenario, you should download, unzip, and install in your python distribution this tvb-data as a regular python package using one of the alternatives:
    • pip install .
    • python develop
