A list of resources that we will use during the workshop. Please check out our CND data format (Continuous-event Neural Data) for data sharing and standardisation. Note that each dataset should be used according to its own license and should be referenced as indicated by the authors in their original submission.
If you experience any issue when downloading the data, consider trying from a different browser.
For the workshop attendees: The main files to download are Workshop basic and the CND version of Natural speech listening below
