Nex5 File Format

NeuroExplorer Version 5.016 (released on July 3, 2015) supports new .nex5 data file format that is more flexible than .nex file format:

  • Allows NeuroExplorer to save files larger than 2 GB
  • Allows to save unlimited metadata for the whole file and for every file variable in JSON format

nex5 format is designed to be similar to .nex format so that the code that reads and writes .nex files would need only small modifications to implement reading and writing .nex5 files.

Full .nex5 file format specification as well as C++ code and Matlab code for reading and writing .nex5 files are available in the following files:
