Datasets usually provide raw data for analysis. This raw data often comes in spreadsheet form, but can be any collection of data, on which analysis can be performed.
This data accompanies the following paper:

We recorded ~10,000 neurons simultaneously at 2.5Hz using calcium imaging. Visual stimuli were shown at approximately 1 Hz, with randomized inter-stimulus intervals. The stimuli were drifting gratings with 8 directions, 4 spatial frequencies and 3 temporal frequencies. Blank stimuli (gray screen) were also interleaved.
