Somatosensory system is communicated by feedforward and feedback projection each other during functional processing. Somatosensory fMRI response is attributed to these inter-regional reciprocal projections. Therefore, the separation of functional pathways in fMRI data is important to interpret fMRI data in circuit level. Here, to dissect somatosensory fMRI response, we compared CBV-weighted fMRI obtained at 15.2T under three conditions: excitation by sensory stimulation, silencing of somatosensory cortex by optogenetic stimulation, and combined excitation and silencing.
