Multivariate pattern analysis techniques are currently widely used in neuroimaging, yet there is a lack of understanding the origin of the signals that drive these analyses and how they relate to underlying neuronal response properties. In this project we are investigating the relationship between tuning properties derived by MVPA with underlying neuronal tuning properties and the spatial scales of the signals to determine to what degree MVPA can be used to determine tuning properties of cortical areas.
