Neuroinformatics Software Applications Supporting Electronic Data Capture, Management, and Sharing for the Neuroimaging Community

The advantages and disadvantages of adopting software applications that support human neurocognitive research features are outlined by reviewing the tools available and then presenting two contrasting neuroimaging study scenarios in the context of conducting a cross-sectional and a multisite longitudinal study.

Terminology Development Towards Harmonizing Multiple Clinical Neuroimaging Research Repositories

It is found that existing terminologies are incomplete for these purposes, even with the history of neuroimaging data sharing in the field; and a model is provided for efforts focused on querying multiple clinical Neuroimaging repositories.

Semantic Integration of Multi-Modal Data and Derived Neuroimaging Results Using the Platform for Imaging in Precision Medicine (PRISM) in the Arkansas Imaging Enterprise System (ARIES)

Semantic integration of the non-imaging data using background information encoded in biomedical domain ontologies has served as a key feature-engineering step, allowing to combine disparate data and apply analyses to explore associations, for instance, between hippocampal volumes and measures of cognitive functions derived from various assessment instruments.

The MNI data-sharing and processing ecosystem

A Predictive Linear Regression Algorithm for the Neuroimaging Data Model

PyNIDM, a toolbox written in Python, supports the creation, manipulation, and query of NIDM documents and reports on one such tool providing linear modeling support for NIDm documents: nidm_linreg.

Extending XNAT Platform with an Incremental Semantic Framework

An incremental semantic framework that takes advantage of the latest advances in biomedical ontologies and the XNAT platform is designed and implemented, and is integrated in the JPND (EU Joint Program for Neurodegenerative Disease) APGeM project, focused on finding early biomarkers for Alzheimer's and other dementia related diseases.

Neuroimaging, Genetics, and Clinical Data Sharing in Python Using the CubicWeb Framework

A Python solution, based on the CubicWeb open-source semantic framework, aimed at building population imaging study repositories and a Python package that enables end users to remotely query neuroimaging, genetics, and clinical data from scripts are presented.

Developing and using the Neuroimaging and Data Sharing Data Model: the NIDASH Working Group

The group includes developers and remains in close contact with projects that plan to use the developed resources, or may do so in the future when articles will be linked to actual data analysis repository (e.g., Neurosynth, Neurovault, Brainspell).

The Brain Imaging Data Structure, a new format for organizing and describing outputs of neuroimaging experiments

The Brain Imaging Data Structure (BIDS) is developed, a standard for organizing and describing MRI datasets that uses file formats compatible with existing software, unifies the majority of practices already common in the field, and captures the metadata necessary for most common data processing operations.

Shanoir: Applying the Software as a Service Distribution Model to Manage Brain Imaging Research Repositories

This article covers how images are accessed through the Shanoir Data Management System and describes the data repositories that are hosted and managed by theShanoir environment in different contexts.



Derived Data Storage and Exchange Workflow for Large-Scale Neuroimaging Analyses on the BIRN Grid

This manuscript will present a case study of using the XML-Based Clinical Experiment Data Exchange (XCEDE) schema and the Human Imaging Database (HID) in the Biomedical Informatics Research Network's (BIRN) distributed environment to document and exchange derived data.

Data sharing in neuroimaging research

The INCF Task Force on Neuroimaging Datasharing, in conjunction with several collaborative groups around the world, has started work on several tools to ease and eventually automate the practice of data sharing, hoped that such tools will allow researchers to easily share raw, processed, and derived neuroimaging data, with appropriate metadata and provenance records, and will improve the reproducibility of neuroim imaging studies.

The Extensible Neuroimaging Archive Toolkit: an informatics platform for managing, exploring, and sharing neuroimaging data.

By managing data with XNAT, laboratories are prepared to better maintain the long-term integrity of their data, to explore emergent relations across data types, and to share their data with the broader neuroimaging community.

Neuroscience Data Integration through Mediation: An (F)BIRN Case Study

The aim with this paper is to illustrate how domain-specific data integration applications can be developed quickly and in a principled way by using the general mediation technology.

The Functional Magnetic Resonance Imaging Data Center (fMRIDC): the challenges and rewards of large-scale databasing of neuroimaging studies.

An overview of the scientific and practical difficulties inherent in managing various fMRI data-sharing approaches is provided and how a publicly accessible database enables other fields to develop relevant tools that can aid in the growth of understanding of cognitive processes.

XCEDE: An Extensible Schema for Biomedical Data

The XCEDE (XML-based Clinical and Experimental Data Exchange) XML schema, developed by members of the BIRN (Biomedical Informatics Research Network), provides an extensive metadata hierarchy for
