Anyone can get a NeuroHub account and start using the portal to upload data, share data and create projects. However, some datasets are restricted to McGill-affiliated researchers. In addition, some software services such as LORIS may require specialized support.
The NeuroHub Portal and CBRAIN Portal are built from the same backend code. Therefore, if you have a NeuroHub account, you also have a CBRAIN account. You can easily switch between the NeuroHub and CBRAIN portals with a single click. NeuroHub is the software component that connects different tools and services within the NeuroHub ecosystem—as such, you can create CBRAIN projects and run tasks from the NeuroHub portal. However, NeuroHub does not have the full functionality of CBRAIN and to access specific tools or advanced functionality, you must use the CBRAIN Portal.
There are multiple public and restricted datasets available on NeuroHub. The most used restricted datasets include the UK Biobank, the Human Connectome Project and PreventAD. For a full list of the datasets available along with descriptions and restrictions please consult our dataset page:
No, in fact, only a minority of projects in NeuroHub are public. All projects can be shared with as little or as many people as you want. Projects can remain private until the data and analysis are ready to be shared. In addition, specific licensing and agreements can be added to projects to restrict access depending on the needs of the owner.
NeuroHub integrates with Compute Canada through the API layer and allows users to access data via their NeuroHub or Compute Canada account. Benefits of using the CBRAIN service of NeuroHub include reproducibility of analysis, access to analysis tools (full list available here).
Each user is allocated 30 GB of storage by default. If more storage is needed, it can be requested by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org. In addition, you can add your own storage configurations on the NeuroHub Portal. This will allow you to take advantage of the features of NeuroHub while allowing for great capacity, flexibility and that data is stored in a particular location.
Send an email to email@example.com and a support ticket will be automatically created for you. A member from the NeuroHub team will respond to your issue as soon as possible. You can also schedule a one-on-one meeting with the NeuroHub team during our bi-weekly Q&A sessions. Follow this link to book and meeting: https://calendly.com/james-mehta/neurohub-qa
