Scan Procedures and Parameters

Ethics approval: Experimental procedures on nonhuman primates were in accordance with the Canadian Council of Animal Care policy and a protocol approved by the Animal Use Subcommittee of the University of Western Ontario Council on Animal Care.

Animal care and housing: Pair-housed animals

Any applicable training: none

Scanning preparations

Anesthesia procedures: Animals were first sedated with 0.1-0.2 mg/kg acepromazine, followed by 7.5 mg/kg ketamine hydrochloride by intramuscular injection. Anesthetic induction was accomplished by the administration of 2.5mg/kg propofol via an intravenous catheter in the saphenous vein. Anesthesia was maintained with 1 to 2% isoflurane with oxygen (1.5-2 L/min) through endotracheal intubation and it was reduced to 1% during fMRI acquisition.

Time between anesthesia and scanning: Monkeys were placed in the scanner as soon as isoflurane anesthesia was initiated and stable.

Head fixation: Animal with an implant (see full sample description) were head fixed using a head post.

Position in scanner and procedure used: Sphinx position

Contrast agent: none

During scanning

Physiological monitoring: Heart rate and SpO2 were monitored throughout via a pulse oximeter and end-tidal CO2 and respiration rate were monitored via a capnometer.

Additional procedures: Temperature was recorded before and after the scans and was maintained within the normal range using heating discs, covers, and thermal insulation. Animals received subcutaneous fluids (10 ml/kg/hr) before and after the scan.
