Inference of causality

A better understanding of various cognitive processes and their relationship with activity patterns recorded with human neuroimaging techniques such as functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) can be gained by using the same fMRI approach in other species, such as macaque monkeys. In macaques, fMRI recording can also be combined with non invasive approaches such as Transcranial Focused Ultrasound Stimulation (TUS) to establish the causal importance of the brain area for a cognitive process. 

The following work uses this combination of fMRI and TUS.
