Resting state fMRI is a convenient method to study the organization of brain networks. It was originally discovered in humans, but has since also been reported in macaque monkeys and a number of other animals. A number of groups have started using resting state fMRI to explicitly compare brain organization between these species.
To facilitate open access of non-human primate neuroimaging data, Michael Milham and colleagues started the PRIMatE Data Exchange (PRIME-DE) as part of the larger 1000 Functional Connectomes Project.
Some of the macaque resting state fMRI data that we worked on together with Matthew Rushworth and Jerome Sallet have been deposited here, together with data from a number of other labs.
A paper describing PRIME-DE is published in Neuron.
