Scan Procedures and Parameters
Ethics approval: All of the animal procedures performed were approved by the UK Home Office and comply with the Animal Scientific Procedures Act (1986) on the care and use of animals in research and with the European Directive on the protection of animals used in research (2010/63/EU). We support the Animal Research Reporting of In VivoExperiments (ARRIVE) principles on reporting animal research. All persons involved in this project were Home Office certified and the work was strictly regulated by the U.K. Home Office. Local Animal Welfare Review Body (AWERB) approval was obtained. The 3Rs principles compliance and assessment was conducted by National Centre for 3Rs (NC3Rs). Animal in Sciences Committee (UK) approval was obtained as part of the Home Office Project License approval.
Animal care and housing: All animals were housed and cared for in a group-housed colony, and animals performed behavioural training on various tasks for auditory and visual neuroscience.
Any applicable training: none prior to MRI scanning
Anesthesia procedures: All but two of the macaques (32099 and 32101) were scanned awake. See Data Sharing Table and Slater et al., J.Nsci. Meth. (2016) for details on the anaesthetised scanning. Anaesthetised scans were conducted during anaesthesia.
Head fixation: MRI compatible head-post or non-invasive head immobilisation.
Position in scanner and procedure used: Animals scanned upright and working on tasks or at rest.
Contrast agent: None
Physiological monitoring: Used eye tracking, video and audio monitoring during scanning.
