The ICLabel dataset is comprised of training and test sets of a set of spatiotemporal features of electroencephalographic (EEG) independent components (IC). The ICLabel training set feature sets were computed for over 200,000 EEG ICs from more than 6,000 existing EEG recordings. More than 8,000 of these ICs have accompanying crowdsourced IC labels across seven IC categories: Brain, Muscle, Eye, Heart, Line Nosie, Channel Noise, and Other. The feature-sets included in the ICLabel dataset are scalp topography images, channel-based scalp topography measures, power spectral densities (PSD) measures (median, variance and kurtosis) and autocorrelation functions, equivalent current dipole (ECD) model fits for single and bilaterally symmetric dipole models, plus features used in several published IC classifier approaches. The ICLabel test set is comprised of 130 ICs from 10 datasets not included in the training set. Each of the test set ICs has an associated IC label estimated based on labels provided by six ICA-EEG experts. Files necessary for adding to and amending the dataset are also included, plus a python class containing useful methods for interacting with the dataset, and IC classifications produced by several existing IC classifiers. These data are linked to the article, "ICLabel: An automated electroencephalographic independent component classifier, dataset, and website" [1]. An active tutorial and crowdsourcing website is available:
