The data for this example is related to an fMRI experiment where a sound stimulus is presented. That experiment is intended to offer a "voice localizer" scan, which allows rapid and reliable localization of the voice-sensitive "temporal voice areas" (TVA) of the human auditory cortex (Pernet et al. 2015). The data of this "voice localizer" scan is freely available on the online platform OpenNEURO (Gorgolewski et al. 2017).


It returns a list in which each element is an array of dimensions [91, 109, 91, 310].
