Summary: The NKI/Rockland Sample is intended to be a phenotypically rich neuroimaging sample, consisting of data obtained from individuals between the ages of 4 and 85 year-old. All individuals to be included in the sample undergo semi-structured diagnostic psychiatric interviews, and complete a battery of psychiatric, cognitive and behavioral assessments in order to provide comprehensive phenotypic information for the purpose of exploring brain/behavior relationships.

The primary goal of the NKI/Rockland sample is to generate a large scale, extensively phenotyped dataset for the purpose of discovery science. Central to the success of discovery science, is the widespread involvement of the scientific community. To facilitate this process, data from the NKI/Rockland sample will be given away prospectively, during the course of acquisition (randomized 2-8 week lag).

We anticipate distributing the following data for 5-10 individuals / week:

Given that the data is being prospectively shared, data-acquisition will be subject to the typical challenges faced by an imaging facility (e.g., data losses, equipment failures, etc.). We will actively update users with information about any such obstacles if and when they arise. Data usage is at the discretion of the receiving party. Any individual piece of imaging data failing to meet our quality control standards will be marked as such, though still released to ensure the completeness and availability of the larger body of the data acquired for each individual.
