The link below will lead to a data set of brain structure volumes that were
machine segmented and measured. Data are from a pediatric data set. HC =
healthy controls, SS = schizophrenics, BPwpsy = bipolar w psychosis,
BPwopsy = bipolar without psychosis.

> Hi all,
> Our math department offers many sections of introductory stats and is
> working to make the classes more consistent among the different
> instructors. They use the same dataset throughout the semester and would
> like to offer students their choice among several different datasets. The
> math faculty have asked the stakeholders (i.e. departments that require a
> stats course for their degree) for suggested datasets. I've included a few
> notes about the course below. I would appreciate any suggestions for a
> neuroscience-related dataset that can be used for teaching statistics.

> Introduction to statistics - key concepts:
> Target student will be a producer of statistics (i.e. not just a
> consumer). R-based course. Includes a little on surveys, experimental
> design, measuring; standard statistics, normal distribution, data
> visualization, Shape of scatter plot, interpretation of correlation
> coefficient r, linear prediction, limitations of regression. Look at
> grouping of data. Formulas for probability; considerations of independence
> and conditional probability; binomial distribution. Sampling distribution,
> confidence intervals, hypothesis testing.
