A new NIDA-supported dataset will now allow researchers to compare their MRI-based scans against more than 10,000 brain images, thereby enhancing reliability and reproducibility.

The Consortium for Reproducibility and Reliability (CoRR) dataset is managed by the Child Mind Institute (CMI).  CoRR was organized by a team of scientists, engineers, and technicians from CMI, the Nathan Kline Institute, the Institute of Psychology, and the Chinese Academy of Sciences with the goals of actively taking on the challenge of exploring brain development and identifying the signatures of mental illness and markers of treatment response.  The project received funding from NIDA and the National Natural Science Foundation of China.
