SchizConnect. Effortless Data Collection.

SchizConnect is a search-and-download virtual database for public schizophrenia neuroimaging data. The mediation software underlying SchizConnect integrates schizophrenia neuroimaging and related data from disparate, heterogeneous databases. This gives you access to multi-site, multi-dimensional, multi-modal data all in one place.

To get started, click on the Data link at the top of this page to proceed to the query interface. From there, you can build a query, run it, and review the results. If you find datasets you'd like to use, simply sign-up or sign-in, and you will be able to download from any or all of the sources. SchizConnect currently contains data from BrainGluSchi (COINS), COBRE (COINS), fBIRNPhaseII__0010 (UCI_HID), MCICShare (COINS), NMorphCH (NU_REDCAP, NUNDA), and NUSDAST (XNAT_CENTRAL, NU_REDCAP).
