From the authors: This dataset contains gastric myoelectric activity recorded from multi-electrode arrays, surgically implanted on the serosal surface of the GI tract to study perturbations due to mechanical or chemical stimuli in acute and chronic preparations of ferrets.

This dataset comprises 20,315 myoelectric waveform files recording nausea and emesis in ferrets (Mustela putorius). The dataset is available for download as a package with an AWS (Amazon Web Services) account and the AWS command line interface, which can be set up with instructions here. (A fee for file transfer may apply.) Alternately, single files may be downloaded through the SPARC website, and the file system may be previewed there. Access and preview these files on the Files tab.

A README in the root folder defines folder organization and trial types. The authors have applied a CC-BY-4.0 license to the dataset. Three protocols for the associated study are linked in the dataset description.

Access Instructions
Data are available to all. Individual file download is available through the SPARC record for free by scrolling to the bottom of the page. The entire dataset can be downloaded by clicking the purple "Get dataset" button on the left side of the screen. While the data are free, there may be a fee required for download of the whole dataset through Amazon Web Services (AWS) because of the large file size.
