Simultaneous fMRI/eyetracking while movie watching, plus visual localizers

Extension of the dataset published in Hanke et al. (2014; doi:10.1038/sdata.2014.3) with additional acquisitions for 15 of the original 20 particpants. These additions include: retinotopic mapping, a localizer paradigm for higher visual areas (FFA, EBA, PPA), and another 2 hour movie recording with 3T full-brain BOLD fMRI with simultaneous 1000 Hz eyetracking.
