Description is a project dedicated to the free and open sharing of raw magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) datasets. Data deposited in OpenfMRI can be used to address or validate many questions concerning the human brain structure and function. Discoveries using this data not only help us understand how the human brain works, but also get us closer to understanding and curing mental illnesses. In addition open availability of data supporting scientific claims increases their validity due to ease of analysis replication. The OpenfMRI project is managed by the Poldrack Lab and Center for Reproducible Neuroscience at Stanford University, with computing resources provided by the Texas Advanced Computing Center and . It is funded by grants from the National Science Foundation, National Institute for Drug Abuse, and Laura and John Arnold Foundation.
