Data for the PlosCB 2019 paper Deep convolutional models improve predictions of macaque V1 responses to natural images
data_binned_responses/cadena_ploscb_data.pkl contains the stimuli, extracted neuron spike counts, and metadata of Cadena et al., 2019 PlosCB. For more details about the data check the paper.
Loading the data
To load the data you need python and the pickle library
import pickle with open('binned_responses/cadena_ploscb_data.pkl', 'rb') as g: loaded_data = pickle.load(g)

[('repetitions', (166,)), ('subject_id', (166,)), ('session_id', (166,)), ('image_ids', (7250, 1)), ('unit_id', (166,)), ('image_types', (7250, 1)), ('images', (7250, 140, 140)), ('responses', (4, 7250, 166)), ('image_numbers', (7250, 1))]
images: The stimuli used in the paper. Array of shape
(num_images, width, height)
responses: The extracted spike count responses to those images in the same order. Array of shape
(num_repetitions, num_images, num_neurons). Aborted trials and fewer repetitions for some sessions resulted in NaNs in this array.
image_types: Stimulus types of each image: 'original', 'conv1', conv2', conv3, or conv4. See paper for details.
unit_id: identifier of the neurons
image_id: identifier of the images
session_id: identifier of the session for each neuron
subject_id: identifier of the monkey for each neuron
repetitions: Number of repeates of the entire stimulus during the session for each neuron.
