EpUp Study Data Release
EpLink, Ontario Brain Institute
About one third of people with epilepsy experience comorbid depression. UPLIFT (Using Practice and Learning to Increase Favorable Thoughts) uses mindfulness-based cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT) principles to treat depression in people with epilepsy. The EpUp study aimed to examine outcomes of UPLIFT versus EpINFO, an epilepsy information and self-management program. The effects of these distance-delivery, group intervention programs were studied in adults with epilepsy and self-reported depressive symptoms.
Data organization and file format
Data is organized based on clinical form, participant cohort (UPLIFT and EpINFO), and timepoint. 88 packages are available that include data for 66 participants across 14 clinical forms, and 6 timepoints. Data is available in CSV format with accompanying README's and data dictionaries.

The following instructions require a basic understanding of UNIX/LINUX command lines. Future portal functionality may include downloads directly from the web browser. Dataset download is currently enabled through DataLad.
conp-dataset requires version >=0.12.5 of DataLad
and version >=8.20200309 of git-annex.
To install DataLad on your system, please refer to the install section of the DataLad Handbook (installation via miniconda is recommended in order to obtain the latest version of DataLad).
1) Initiate the CONP dataset
To initiate the CONP dataset (
conp-dataset), run the following
command in the directory where you want CONP datasets to be installed:
datalad install https://github.com/CONP-PCNO/conp-dataset.git
2) Install the braincode_EpLink dataset
To install the dataset, go into the created conp-dataset directory and run
datalad install on the dataset
datalad install projects/braincode_EpLink
3) Download the braincode_EpLink dataset
Now that the DataLad dataset has been installed, go into the dataset
Note that files visible in the dataset are symlinks and will need to be
downloaded manually using the
command in the dataset directory:
datalad get <filepath>
Note, if you run
datalad get * command, all the files present
in the dataset directory will be downloaded.
