The Brain Imaging Data Structure

This resource defines the Brain Imaging Data Structure (BIDS) specification, including the core specification as well as many modality-specific extensions.

To get started, check out the introduction. If you'd like more information on how to adapt your own datasets to match the BIDS specification, we recommend exploring the bids-specification starter kit.

For an overview of the BIDS ecosystem, visit the BIDS homepage. The entire specification can also be downloaded as PDF.
