The TDBRAIN Dataset

The complete TDBrain dataset (a whopping 120Gb dataset containing the anonymized eeg files of over 1200 subjects) or a subsample of the TDBRAIN Dataset as published in van Dijk et al. 2022; The Two Decades – Brainclinics Research Archive for Insights in Neurophysiology (TDBRAIN) database.

The TDBRAIN Challenge

We marked 30% of clinical and treatment outcome data as REPLICATION.
Researchers can share () their diagnostic or treatment-outcome predictions on these REPLICATION data with us, so we can perform a ‘blinded out-of-sample’ validation for them.
We post the results on the TDBRAIN Challenge page, so that reviewers for journals can also consult this independent validation of their algorithms. Conversely, reviewers or editors faced with ‘too good to be true’ claims, can refer researchers to this resource, to perform validations and share them with us for verification and publication. We hope this will accelerate the discovery and validation of clinically actionable biomarkers that we hope will soon benefit patients and improve psychiatric and neurological care in the clinic.

NOTE: To eliminate chance results we only allow three predictions per challenger/dataset (i.e. 3 predictions for treatment response based on the TDBRAIN set, and/or 3 diagnostic based on the diagnostic validation set).

Hans Berger

Hans Berger was, perhaps, the greatest of all pioneers. He was the first to record the human EEG, invented the term “Electroencephalography”, and was, of course, also the first to describe the alpha wave rhythm, or Berger Rhythm.
His work paved the way for many great improvements in the field of electroencephalograpy and his discoveries continue to be very important in diagnosing psychiatric disorders and predicting the efficacy of certain medications in their treatment.
We collected his work in one convenient archive. It is a valuable resource to researchers and those with a general interest in the history of the EEG, and best of all… it is available to you, for free!
