Abstract: In 1998 several groups reported the feasibility of fMRI experiments in monkeys, with the goal to bridge the
gap between invasive nonhuman primate studies and human functional imaging. These studies yielded
critical insights in the neuronal underpinnings of the BOLD signal. Furthermore, the technology has been
successful in guiding electrophysiological recordings and identifying focal perturbation targets. Finally,
invaluable information was obtained concerning human brain evolution. We here provide a comprehensive
overview of awake monkey fMRI studies mainly confined to the visual system. We review the latest insights
about the topographic organization of monkey visual cortex and discuss the spatial relationships between
retinotopy and category- and feature-selective clusters. We briefly discuss the functional layout of parietal
and frontal cortex and continue with a summary of some fascinating functional and effective connectivity
studies. Finally, we review recent comparative fMRI experiments and speculate about the future of
nonhuman primate imaging.
