Edits to 'https://fairsharing.org/FAIRsharing.21d998' by 'diegoalvareze' at 12:54, 29 Mar 2017 (approved): 'description' has been modified: Before: A simple digital format supporting the technical aspects of exchange and storage of polygraphic signals has been specified. Implementation of the format is simple and independent of hard- or software environments. It allows for any local montages, transducers, prefiltering, sampling frequencies, etc. At present, 7 laboratories in various countries have used the format for exchanging sleep-wake recordings. These exchanges have made it possible to create a common database of sleep records, to compare the analysis algorithms local to the various laboratories to each other by applying these algorithms to identical signals, and to set up a computer-aided interlaboratory evaluation of manual and automatic analysis methods. After: The European Data Format (EDF) is a simple and flexible format for exchange and storage of multichannel biological and physical signals. More information http://www.edfplus.info

The PhysioNet Resource is intended to stimulate current research and new investigations in the study of complex biomedical and physiologic signals. It offers free web access to large collections of recorded physiologic signals (PhysioBank) and related open-source software (PhysioToolkit).
National Sleep Research Resource
The National Sleep Research Resource (NSRR) offers free web access to large collections of de-identified physiological signals and clinical data elements collected in well-characterized research cohorts and clinical trials. Using the tools provided, the researcher can search across thousands of data elements, identify those data of most relevance for given needs, explore the statistical distributions of each, and download the data as CSV files. Data include demographic, physiological, clinical, and other data types collected by each study. Physiologic signals from overnight polysomnograms (sleep studies) are available by downloading European Data Format (EDF) files. The researcher can load summary measures of standardly scored sleep data. Specific scored annotations can be accessed by downloading XML files and can be viewed offline using the EDF Viewer.
