This study evaluates the intra- and inter-subject variability of digit maps in area 3b of anesthetized squirrel monkeys. Maps were collected using high field blood oxygenation level dependent (BOLD) functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI). BOLD responses to individual digit stimulations were mapped and their response properties (location, area of activation, % signal change, time to peak response) were compared within and across imaging sessions separated by up to 20 months.
