Filter Cart

The Filter Cart provides a way to query and access data for which you may be interested.  There are multiple places to go query and Add to Filter Cart (Sometimes called Download).  

A few points related to the filter cart are important to understand with the NDA Query/Filter implementation: 

First, the filter cart is populated asyncronously.  So, when you add subjects, sometimes it may take a few minutes to populate.  You can continue to do other things during this time. 

When you are adding your first filter, all data associated with your query will be added to the filter cart (whether it be a collection, a concept, a study, a data structure/elment or subjects). Not all data available for the subjects selected will necessarily be displayed.  For example, if you select the NDA imaging structure image03, and further restrict that query to scan_type fMRI, only fMRI images will appear and only the image03 structure will be available.  However, if you want to see all of the clinical and phenotype, then select, "Find All Subject Data" to see all the data avaialble for those subjects.  

when a secord or third filter is applied, an AND condition is used to determine the subjects that are exist in all filters.  If the subject does not appear in any filter, that subjects data will be excluded from your filter cart. Given the sparcity of data in the NDA, it is possible for no subjects to appear across filters.  If that happens, clear your filter cart, and start over.  

The NDA is looking to enhance query/filtering.  Until additional tools become available, it is best to package more data than you need and then package and download the data and use other tools to further restrict and analyze the data.  If you have any questions on data access, are interested in using avaialble web services or need help accessing data, please contact us for assistance.

Selected Filters
No filters selected

The filters you have selected from various query interfaces will be stored here, in the 'Filter Cart'. The database will be queried using filters added to your 'Filter Cart', when multiple filters are defined, each will be executed using 'AND' logic, so with each filter that is applied the result set gets smaller.

From the 'Filter Cart' you can inspect each of the filters that have been defined, and you also have the option to remove filters. The 'Filter Cart' itself will display the number of filters applied along with the number of subjects that are identified by the combination of those filters. For example a GUID filter with two subjects, followed by a GUID filter for just one of those subjects would return only data for the subject that is in both GUID filters.

If you have a question about the filter cart, or underlying filters please contact the help desk at The NDA Help Desk

Neurobehavioral Research on Infants at Risk for SLI and Autism
Helen Tager-flusberg 
The specific aims of the research are (1) to identify markers that distinguish between infants at risk for SLI or ASD and low risk controls; (2) to identify the predictors of later SLI and ASD diagnoses (at 36 months of age) from measures collected between 6 and 12 months of age; and (3) to compare developmental trajectories of key language and related social/cognitive measures between 6 and 36 months in infants with and without clinical outcomes. These aims will be pursued in a longitudinal prospective design following infants from 6 to 36 months of age. Data will be collected on language and social perception using behavioral, eye-tracking and neurophysiological measures as well as general measures of cognitive and brain development (head circumference; EEG).

Associated Studies

Studies that have been defined using data from a Collection are important criteria to determine the value of data shared. The number of subjects column displays the counts from this Collection that are included in a Study, out of the total number of subjects in that study. The Data Use column represents whether or not the study is a primary analysis of the data or a secondary analysis. State indicates whether the study is private or shared with the research community.
