Dear MESA,

first of all, thank you for your dataset. Very valuable and a very nice example of open datasets that make our research move forward

I recently had access to the MESA dataset and I have a two questions regarding the actigraphy files:

  1. is there a way to access the original .csv file, provided they are anonymized? I am interested in the original start time of the recordings.
  2. at least, would it possible to access the month of the start time? From a chronobiology perspective, a recording made in Winter has certainly some differences with a recording made in Summer.

Btw, I developed a package for actigraphy analysis that reads native .csv file from Respironics and I would be glad to help in extracting these start times (or just the month).

Thank you.

Best regards,

Grégory Hammad

Thanks for the inquiry. I will email a dataset to you with the start month of each subject's actigraphy recording.
