Open Brain Consent

Difficulty level

Open Brain Consent is an international initiative aiming to address the challenge of creating participant consent language that will promote the open sharing of data, protect participant privacy, and conform to legal norms and institutional review boards.

Open Brain Consent addresses the aforementioned difficulties in neuroscience research with human participants by collecting:

  • widely acceptable consent forms (with various translations) allowing deposition of anonymized data to public data archives
  • collection of tools/pipelines to help anonymization of neuroimaging data making it ready for sharing
