We developed fast MRI methods facilitating concurrent electrophysiological recordings and fMRI with high spatio-temporal resolution (500ms / 750m) and full brain coverage in macaques. The significant improvements in MR signal sampling efficiency without and with the use of parallel imaging are demonstrated by presenting activation maps and time-courses of fMRI experiments using a simple visual stimulation paradigm.
