SSVEP Nakanishi 2015 dataset

This dataset contains 12-class joint frequency-phase modulated steady-state visual evoked potentials (SSVEPs) acquired from 10 subjects used to estimate an online performance of brain-computer interface (BCI) in the reference study [1].

data_path(subject[, path, force_update, …])

Get path to local copy of a subject data.

download([subject_list, path, force_update, …])

Download all data from the dataset.


Return the data correspoonding to a list of subjects.

data_path(subject, path=None, force_update=False, update_path=None, verbose=None)[source][source]

Get path to local copy of a subject data.

  • subject (int) – Number of subject to use

  • path (None | str) – Location of where to look for the data storing location. If None, the environment variable or config parameter MNE_DATASETS_(dataset)_PATH is used. If it doesn’t exist, the “~/mne_data” directory is used. If the dataset is not found under the given path, the data will be automatically downloaded to the specified folder.

  • force_update (bool) – Force update of the dataset even if a local copy exists.

  • update_path (bool | None **Deprecated**) – If True, set the MNE_DATASETS_(dataset)_PATH in mne-python config to the given path. If None, the user is prompted.

  • verbose (bool, str, int, or None) – If not None, override default verbose level (see mne.verbose()).


path – Local path to the given data file. This path is contained inside a list of length one, for compatibility.
