What is the focus of multi-voxel analyses in neuroimaging?

Identifiable activity patterns within a region

What aspect of brain activity does connectivity analysis in neuroimaging aim to understand?

How different brain regions interact

What plays a crucial role in the MRI signal generation process in brain imaging?
