The ADNI project (2004–ongoing) aims at characterizing change in cognitive functions and brain structures with age, with a particular emphasis on Alzheimer's disease and neuroimaging. From the website, The overall goal of this huge project is to define the rate of progress of mild cognitive impairment and Alzheimer's disease, to develop improved ...

Some extremely large personality data sets can be downloaded at http://personality-testing.info/_rawdata/ in CSV format. They are not packaged in R, but I post the link because you indicate in your reply to USER:what that you are having trouble finding any data sets what so ever.

The Inter-University Consortium for Political and Social Research (ICPSR) provides 8000+ data sets. Topics include aging, criminal justice, education, or health. As an example, here is my favorite, the summary of the "500 Family Study". This study includes questionnaire, cortisol, and experience sampling data: The 500 Family Study was designed to ...

The PROMIS project (funded by NIH) built upon a large scale US epidemiological study to assess patient-reported chronic disease outcomes. Data were collected on general population and multiple disease populations in different centers. From the website, Patient Reported Outcomes Measurement Information System (PROMIS) is a system of highly reliable, ...

You've described a very general type of study design which has probably been employed in hundreds of studies or more. Your question might profit from a more specific description of the type of study you're looking for. A few examples that fit the bill just off the top of my head are: Goldstone (1996) Isolated and interrelated concepts Zaki and Homa (1999) ...

680 datasets that were originally distributed alongside R and some of its add-on packages are collected on GitHub. An index lists the datasets and the packages they came from. If you just want datasets and don't mind that they were not part of any R package, then there are many available for free on the web. For example, Quandl lists over 7 million ...

The languageR package contains several interesting real-world datasets relevant to psycholinguistics. These datasets are presumably also described in the accompanying textbook.

I would recommend the 730 pictures Geneva affective picture database (GAPED). It has been validated worldwide, and the cultural bias is more limited than other image resources. There are general positive/neutral/negative images, with valence and activations scores. Some other more specific images are also provided (snakes, spîders). Download here Read the ...

Scientific Data: After asking my question, I did a quick search and found one promising journal that will commence in 2014 called Scientific Data. Scientific Data is a new open-access, online-only publication for descriptions of scientifically valuable datasets. It introduces a new type of content called the Data Descriptor, which will combine ...

The IQSS Dataverse Network looks good. From the website: Access the world's largest collection of social science research data here by searching across or browsing through one of the virtual data archives (called "dataverses") listed below. You may also create a dataverse of your own, backed up in perpetuity by the Henry A. Murray Archive, which ...

It is not specifically for data from the cognitive sciences but figshare might be worth looking at: figshare allows researchers to publish all of their research outputs in seconds in an easily citable, sharable and discoverable manner. All file formats can be published, including videos and datasets that are often demoted to the supplemental materials ...

(1) The statistic software R comes with a number of datasets. You can see which datasets are available with the command data(). Here is an overview. Among the datasets that came with my distribution of R is the dataset Titanic, which includes the binary variable "Survived", which gives information about which passengers survived the Titanic's maiden voyage. ...

The fMRI Data Center (www.fmridc.org) was one such repository. About ten years ago it was a requirement for publication in the Journal of Cognitive Neuroscience that you submit your full fMRI dataset to the fMRIDC. This requirement was only around for a few years, but they ended up having 120+ datasets before the grant funding ran out. The archive is ...

The Journal of Open Psychology Data: A great project spearheaded by Jelte M. Wicherts, longtime open science advocate. Unfortunately, it has only published one paper so far.

This question asks about Psychological journal that focuses on publishing interesting psychological datasets journals where you can publish psychological data. Such journals rely on other organisations to provide repositories for the published datasets. In particular, the journal Open Psychological Data has a page which lists several data repositories along ...

Bob Rehder's work may be of interest, for instance: Rehder, B., & Hoffman, A. B. (2005). Thirty-something categorization results explained: Selective attention, eyetracking, and models of category learning. Journal of Experimental Psychology: Learning, Memory, and Cognition, 31, 811-829. You will see some eye-tracking data on some classic results, but ...

This might be better suited as a comment, but I'm not allowed to post such. I went through the nice list collected by Craig Bennett: nitrc.org: Data has been preprocessed, but there is no complete list of what has been done, and how the data has been collected. Maybe the information is hidden in the previous publications. Anyway, I would not use it for ...

I think you need to distinguish dream activity and dream recall. I thought that everyone dreams every night. However, many factors influence whether we recall the dreams. Thus, I think a more productive search would be to focus on the factors that influence dream recall, and perhaps the prominence of dreams in peoples lives. I found one older article by ...

It's not exactly what you're after, but the Newcastle Cognition Lab has a data repository. It includes a number of learning curve datasets and other studies that measured response time to various simple cognitive tasks.

If you have nothing against crawling the figurative arse of the internet, then 4chan's /b/ board might provide what you're seeking. I managed to scrape together a few hundred images for a quick-and-dirty EIB study using this approach (I don't have the images anymore, else I'd gladly forward them to you). Just make sure the ethics committee doesn't have a ...

Perhaps have a look at chapter 14 of Gelman and Hill http://www.stat.columbia.edu/~gelman/arm/ Chapter 14 is on multilevel logistic regression and the website provides access to all data files used. I just don't have access to the book right now to tell you which of the many datafiles used in the book correspond to the examples in chapter 14. More ...
