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.
A speadsheet of data from two groups, a Parkinson's disease group and a group of controls matched for age, gender and years in education. Both groups completed questionnaire measures (HADS, QUIP-RS, TOSCA, BIS-11, Self-Disgust Scale), and responded to questions about how they felt following two induction paradigms. In the first paradigm, they were shown photographs of themselves (or a neutral photograph) and were asked to report levels of self-disgust, anger, sadness and the levels of arousal. In the second paradigm, they were asked to narrate instances when they had felt self-disgust, shame, guilt or a neutral mood, and report how they felt after the narration (in terms of the target emotion, anger, sadness, happiness, and the level of arousal).
