Ethics approval: All procedures were approved by the Animal Care and Use Committee of the US National Institutes of Health (National Institute of Mental Health) and followed US National Institutes of Health guidelines

Animal care and housing: The animals were on water restriction and received their daily fluid intake during their daily testing. Each subject's weight and hydration level was monitored closely and maintained throughout the experimental testing phases. Animals were pair-housed throughout the length of the study.

Any applicable training: Animals were trained to fixate for a juice reward. This was used for eye position calibration and block design stimulation.

Anesthesia procedures: None

Time between anesthesia and scanning: N/A

Head fixation: Animals were implanted with a custom-designed and fabricated fiberglass head-post, which was used to immobilize the head during testing.

Position in scanner and procedure used: Animals sat upright in a specially designed chair and viewed the visual stimuli projected onto a screen above their head through a mirror.

Contrast agent: MION ~12-15 mg/kg dosing (Feraheme)

Physiological monitoring: During scanning, eye position was monitored.
