field fMRI allows us to detect the functional sensory pathway including thalamic nuclei. Although hemodynamic
response function is determined spatially by the vascular architecture and
temporally by the evolution of hemodynamic changes, fMRI signals may provide
insight into tracking sequential neural processing. Here, we investigated the
spatiotemporal evolution of functional sensory pathways during forepaw
stimulation in anesthetized mice using ultra-high field BOLD fMRI.
