Neural responses to naturalistic clips of behaving animals in two different task contexts

Neuroimaging studies of object and action representation often use controlled stimuli and implicitly assume that the relevant neural representational spaces are fixed and context-invariant. Here we present functional MRI data measured while participants freely viewed brief naturalistic video clips of behaving animals in two different task contexts. Participants performed a 1-back category repetition detection task requiring them to attend to either animal taxonomy or animal behavior. The data and analysis code are freely available, and have been curated according to the Brain Imaging Data Structure (BIDS) standard. We thoroughly describe the data, provide quality control metrics, and perform a searchlight classification analysis to demonstrate the potential utility of the data. These data are intended to provide a test bed for investigating how task demands alter the neural representation of complex stimuli and their semantic qualities.

Brain Injury & Trauma

brain injury after impact to the head is due to both immediate mechanical effects and delayed responses of neural tissues.
