We investigate resting-state brain and spinal cord functional connectivity of four healthy volunteers by means of a novel dynamic per slice shimming approach. Functional connectivity, between brain and spinal cord, reveals localization to corresponding sensory and motor areas. Our results are consistent with task-based brain-spinal cord activation results using a motor task , suggesting a strong connection of descending and ascending signals with the brain.
