Spatio-temporal dynamics of neural activity plays a pivotal role in forming our perception. Ultra-high field fMRI allows us to visualize fine spatial patterns of neural activity but little is known about its dynamics because it is typically believed to lack sufficient temporal resolution - due either to scanner or hemodynamic limitations. Here we demonstrate that event-related fMRI and multivariate pattern analyses allows us to decode visual information faster than the hemodynamic response, suggesting possibility to analyze neural information representation at high temporal resolution.
