BrainLiner v1.08 Release


We recently released v1.08 of BrainLiner.jp, our web portal for sharing time-aligned neurophysiological data.

The big announcement in the new release is the added ability to download .mat (Matlab v7.3) files, in addition to Neuroshare.

Please go to http://brainliner.jp and download some data.

BrainLiner v1.07 Released!


The other day we released the latest version of our web portal for sharing neurophysiological and behavioral data, http://brainliner.jp/

New Features Include:

  • New light-colored design
  • Ability to download an entire project with as a single .zip file
  • Integration with FaceBook, Twitter, and Google+
  • Ability to choose between Creative Commons (CC-0 and CC-BY) licenses for your uploaded data, or create your own.
  • Automatic separation between data and supplementary files that are uploaded.
  • Improved search performance

Please feel free to e-mail us (Takemiya, Harada, and Tsukamoto at ATR) at brainliner-admin@atr.jp and give us your comments and opinions.

Additionally, we also created a FaceBook page where you can get the latest news about our site, as well as post your comments to us:

Young Investigator Award


Takafumi Yanigasawa, a member at our lab from Osaka University, won the Young Investigator Award at ICCN 2010 in Kobe.

“The Dream Recorder” – An Interview with Yukiyasu Kamitani


The head of our lab, Dr. Kamitani, has an interview in the latest issue of The New Tough – 「”The Dream Recorder,” The New Tough <http://thenewtough.com/> Issue 5, “Science”, Fall 2010」. Be careful, though, as a creative magazine, it may not be safe for work.

The Science of ‘Inception’


Forbes recently posted an article covering some of our recent research on brain activity in human dreams. You can read the article HERE.

Brain Decoder Toolbox


We released our Brain Decoder Toolbox (BDTB), which is a set of Matlab functions to decode brain activity. We use it for our own research and we are making it publicly available in the hopes that other people may find it interesting.

Please look at our download page for the Brain Decoder Toolbox.

NIPS 2009 Paper


Our paper, Fujiwara Y., Miyawaki Y. and Kamitani Y. Estimating image bases for visual image reconstruction from human brain activity. Neural Information Processing Systems (NIPS) Conference (2009), was recently made available online, so please feel free to click on the link and go download it! Dr. Fujiwara is at the NIPS conference right now presenting our work, so if you are attending the conference, feel free to introduce yourself to him.
