Movie Explorer 2.0.1


The free standard edition is all you need if you only want to catalog your digital movie files. But if you also want to catalog TV Show files, Blu-rays, DVD's, and other disc formats, or you need advanced catalog features, then you'll need to upgrade to the professional edition.




Movie Explorer 2.0.1



I got error related to MSTest.TestAdapter nuget package while compiling. Resolved that issue by removing tag. Though it made build successful, test methods became non discover-able. Test explorer won't list down the test methods in that project and Run Test or Debug Test won't work as well.


Prolonged complex naturalistic stimulation is arguably more likely to elicit brain responses that are representative of naturally occurring brain states and dynamics than artificial, highly controlled experiments with a limited number of simplified conditions. One particularly interesting aspect of natural stimulation using movies is the temporal synchronicity of changes in the response pattern across individual brains, presumably caused by synchronous temporal dynamics of underlying neuronal processes.


Algorithms have been developed that utilize inter-individual synchronicity of changes of the brain state over time to align fMRI data from individual brains into a group space based on functional connectivity patterns11 and BOLD time-series correlation12. Haxby and colleagues were able to demonstrate that temporally synchronous patterns can be used to transform brain response patterns of individual brains into a high-dimensional representational space with common dimensions for all brains13. This technique enables group analyses of distributed activation patterns at the same level of detail and accuracy as the analysis of idiosyncratic patterns of an individual brain. Uniformly, these studies find that deriving inter-individual alignment from fMRI data recorded while participants watch movies yields transformations that are of greater general validity when tested on data from controlled experiments. This is further evidence that movies elicit brain response patterns and dynamics that are representative for naturally occurring neuronal processes.


We hope that our reproducible stimulus and acquisition procedure will be used by independent researchers to extend the scope of this dataset by adding data from participants with different cultural backgrounds, a different spoken language or an audio-visual stimulus. We have already begun to acquire more data and aim to add additional modalities in the future. We invite interested researchers to coordinate with us on creating a high-dimensional brain response based annotation of this movie stimulus.


MRI data acquisition was split into three sessions per participant. While functional MRI data were recorded at 7 Tesla, most structural images were obtained using a 3-Tesla scanner on a different day. Due to the length of the movie recording session, acquisition of functional and structural images at 7 Tesla was split into two separate sessions. The order of recording sessions was arbitrary and not constant across participants, although all participants happened to participate in the sessions at 7 Tesla first. Scanning sessions were at least two days apart, but for some participants the recording sessions were spread over several weeks.


Data motion correction was performed within scanner online reconstruction as part of the distortion correction procedure, and the associated motion estimates are provided in a whitespace-delimited 6-column text file (translation X, Y, Z in mm, rotation around X, Y, Z in deg) with one row per fMRI volume for each movie segment separately.


The text and timing of the German audio description cannot be inferred from the Forrest Gump DVD release, therefore we provide a transcript in a comma-separated value table. Each line of the transcript table represents one temporally continuous audio description segment. The first and second columns list start time and end time of a segment. Start and end times were estimated with a ta
