The study of inter-laminar functional connectivity within the primary somatosensory (S1) cortex provides great depth of knowledge about input and output information process in S1 cortex for somatic sensation, but few studies have resolved the contributions of different cortical layers to measured BOLD signals. In this work, we performed sub-millimeter resolution resting-state functional MRI in the S1 cortex in anesthetized squirrel monkeys and examined the laminar specific functional connectivity between sub-regions (area 3a, area 3b and area 1) of the S1 cortex.
