My apologies for the amateur question, I am just getting started; I hope that by solving it with such a low knowledge level, the hurdle to join for other users (maybe without an account yet, or aspiring researchers) can be lowered as a nice side-effect:
I checked the BIDS specification pdf, but I seem to need more specific, basic help.
My goal: convert already collected data into a BIDS compatible structure to use fMRIPrep on resting-state data; no other task, and only one run per subject.
My folder structure is as follows:
ashes → Macintosh HD → Project → “sub-08” AND “participants.tsv” → anat → sub-08_task-rest_T1w.nii
ashes → Macintosh HD → Project → “sub-08” AND “participants.tsv” ->func → sub-08_task-rest_fmri.nii AND sub-08_task-rest_fmri.json
I intend to run fMRIPrep for only one subject as a personal start.
The .json file includes a lot of data including TaskName, VolumeTiming, EchoTime, etc.
The participants.tsv file is almost empty and was included because of a BIDS Validator’s error message; it includes participant_id, age, sex with values sub-08, n/a, n/a; respectively.
BIDS Validator (online) gives me 3 errors in 4 files if I upload the folder “Project” (=8 files) (compare above).
Thank you for reading and sticking with me until here, hope I didn’t evoke too much disgust
