Functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) has become an important tool in Neuroscience due to its noninvasive and high spatial resolution properties compared to other methods like PET or EEG. Characterization of the neural connectivity has been the aim of several cognitive researches, as the interactions among cortical areas lie at the heart of many brain dysfunctions and mental disorders. Several methods like correlation analysis, structural equation modeling, and dynamic causal models have been proposed to quantify connectivity strength. An important concept related to connectivity modeling is Granger causality, which is one of the most popular definitions for the measure of directional dependence between time series. In this article, we propose the application of the partial directed coherence (PDC) for the connectivity analysis of multisubject fMRI data using multivariate bootstrap. PDC is a frequency domain counterpart of Granger causality and has become a very prominent tool in EEG studies. The achieved frequency decomposition of connectivity is useful in separating interactions from neural modules from those originating in scanner noise, breath, and heart beating. Real fMRI dataset of six subjects executing a language processing protocol was used for the analysis of connectivity. Hum Brain Mapp 30:452-461...

The identification, modeling, and analysis of interactions between nodes of neural systems in the human brain have become the aim of interest of many studies in neuroscience. The complex neural network structure and its correlations with brain functions have played a role in all areas of neuroscience, including the comprehension of cognitive and emotional processing. Indeed, understanding how information is stored, retrieved, processed, and transmitted is one of the ultimate challenges in brain research. In this context, in functional neuroimaging, connectivity analysis is a major tool for the exploration and characterization of the information flow between specialized brain regions. In most functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) studies, connectivity analysis is carried out by first selecting regions of interest (ROI) and then calculating an average BOLD time series (across the voxels in each cluster). Some studies have shown that the average may not be a good choice and have suggested, as an alternative, the use of principal component analysis (PCA) to extract the principal eigen-time series from the ROI(s). In this paper, we introduce a novel approach called cluster Granger analysis (CGA) to study connectivity between ROIs. The main aim of this method was to employ multiple eigen-time series in each ROI to avoid temporal information loss during identification of Granger causality. Such information loss is inherent in averaging (e.g....

Background: A common approach for time series gene expression data analysis includes the clustering of genes
with similar expression patterns throughout time. Clustered gene expression proﬁles point to the joint contribution of
groups of genes to a particular cellular process. However, since genes belong to intricate networks, other features,
besides comparable expression patterns, should provide additional information for the identiﬁcation of functionally
similar genes.
Results: In this study we perform gene clustering through the identiﬁcation of Granger causality between and within
sets of time series gene expression data. Granger causality is based on the idea that the cause of an event cannot
come after its consequence.
Conclusions: This kind of analysis can be used as a complementary approach for functional clustering, wherein
genes would be clustered not solely based on their expression similarity but on their topological proximity built
according to the intensity of Granger causality among them.; The supercomputing resource was provided by Human Genome Center (Univ. of Tokyo). This work was supported by FAPESP and CNPq - Brazil and RIKEN - Japan.

Multielectrode neurophysiological recording and high-resolution neuroimaging generate multivariate data that are the basis for understanding the patterns of neural interactions. How to extract directions of information flow in brain networks from these data remains a key challenge. Research over the last few years has identified Granger causality as a statistically principled technique to furnish this capability. The estimation of Granger causality currently requires autoregressive modeling of neural data. Here, we propose a nonparametric approach based on widely used Fourier and wavelet transforms to estimate Granger causality, eliminating the need of explicit autoregressive data modeling. We demonstrate the effectiveness of this approach by applying it to synthetic data generated by network models with known connectivity and to local field potentials recorded from monkeys performing a sensorimotor task.

Effective connectivity in brain networks can be studied using Granger causality analysis which is based on temporal precedence, while functional connectivity is usually derived using zero-lag correlation. Due to the smoothing of the neuronal activity by the hemodynamic response inherent in the functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) acquisition process, Granger causality, as normally computed from fMRI data, may be contaminated by zero-lag correlation. Simulations performed in this work showed that the zero-lag correlation does “leak” into estimates of time-lagged causality. To eliminate this leak, we introduce a method in which the zero-lag influences are explicitly modeled in the vector autoregressive model but omitted while calculating Granger causality. The effectiveness of this method is demonstrated using fMRI data obtained from healthy humans performing a verbal working memory task.

Changes in conscious level have been associated with changes in dynamical integration and segregation among distributed brain regions. Recent theoretical developments emphasize changes in directed functional (i.e., causal) connectivity as reflected in quantities such as ‘integrated information’ and ‘causal density’. Here we develop and illustrate a rigorous methodology for assessing causal connectivity from electroencephalographic (EEG) signals using Granger causality (GC). Our method addresses the challenges of non-stationarity and bias by dividing data into short segments and applying permutation analysis. We apply the method to EEG data obtained from subjects undergoing propofol-induced anaesthesia, with signals source-localized to the anterior and posterior cingulate cortices. We found significant increases in bidirectional GC in most subjects during loss-of-consciousness, especially in the beta and gamma frequency ranges. Corroborating a previous analysis we also found increases in synchrony in these ranges; importantly, the Granger causality analysis showed higher inter-subject consistency than the synchrony analysis. Finally, we validate our method using simulated data generated from a model for which GC values can be analytically derived. In summary...

Granger causality analysis of functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) blood-oxygen-level-dependent signal data allows one to infer the direction and magnitude of influence that brain regions exert on one another. We employed a method for upsampling the time resolution of fMRI data that does not require additional interpolation beyond the interpolation that is regularly used for slice-timing correction. The mathematics for this new method are provided, and simulations demonstrate its viability. Using fMRI, 17 snake phobics and 19 healthy controls viewed snake, disgust, and neutral fish video clips preceded by anticipatory cues. Multivariate Granger causality models at the native 2-sec resolution and at the upsampled 400-ms resolution assessed directional associations of fMRI data among 13 anatomical regions of interest identified in prior research on anxiety and emotion. Superior sensitivity was observed for the 400-ms model, both for connectivity within each group and for group differences in connectivity. Context-dependent analyses for the 400-ms multivariate Granger causality model revealed the specific trial types showing group differences in connectivity. This is the first demonstration of effective connectivity of fMRI data using a method for achieving 400-ms resolution without sacrificing accuracy available at 2-sec resolution.

Granger causality is increasingly being applied to multi-electrode neurophysiological and functional imaging data to characterize directional interactions between neurons and brain regions. For a multivariate dataset, one might be interested in different subsets of the recorded neurons or brain regions. According to the current estimation framework, for each subset, one conducts a separate autoregressive model fitting process, introducing the potential for unwanted variability and uncertainty. In this paper, we propose a multivariate framework for estimating Granger causality. It is based on spectral density matrix factorization and offers the advantage that the estimation of such a matrix needs to be done only once for the entire multivariate dataset. For any subset of recorded data, Granger causality can be calculated through factorizing the appropriate submatrix of the overall spectral density matrix.

Estimation of causal interactions between brain areas is necessary for elucidating large-scale functional brain networks underlying behavior and cognition. Granger causality analysis of time series data can quantitatively estimate directional information flow between brain regions. Here, we show that such estimates are significantly improved when the temporal sampling rate of functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) is increased 20-fold. Specifically, healthy volunteers performed a simple visuomotor task during blood oxygenation level dependent (BOLD) contrast based whole-head inverse imaging (InI). Granger causality analysis based on raw InI BOLD data sampled at 100-ms resolution detected the expected causal relations, whereas when the data were downsampled to the temporal resolution of 2 s typically used in echo-planar fMRI, the causality could not be detected. An additional control analysis, in which we SINC interpolated additional data points to the downsampled time series at 0.1-s intervals, confirmed that the improvements achieved with the real InI data were not explainable by the increased time-series length alone. We therefore conclude that the high-temporal resolution of InI improves the Granger causality connectivity analysis of the human brain.

#Time series#Granger causality#Indirect causality#Multiple horizon causality#Causality measure#Predictability#Autoregressive model#Vector autoregression#VAR#Bootstrap#Monte Carlo

The concept of causality introduced by Wiener (1956) and Granger (1969) is defined in terms of
predictability one period ahead. This concept can be generalized by considering causality at a
given horizon h, and causality up to any given horizon h [Dufour and Renault (1998)]. This
generalization is motivated by the fact that, in the presence of an auxiliary variable vector Z, it
is possible that a variable Y does not cause variable X at horizon 1, but causes it at horizon h >
1. In this case, there is an indirect causality transmitted by Z. Another related problem consists
in measuring the importance of causality between two variables. Existing causality measures
have been defined only for the horizon 1 and fail to capture indirect causal effects. This paper
proposes a generalization of such measures for any horizon h. We propose nonparametric and
parametric measures of unidirectional and instantaneous causality at any horizon h. Parametric
measures are defined in the context of autoregressive processes of unknown order and expressed
in terms of impulse response coefficients. On noting that causality measures typically involve
complex functions of model parameters in VAR and VARMA models, we propose a simple
method to evaluate these measures which is based on the simulation of a large sample from the
process of interest. We also describe asymptotically valid nonparametric confidence intervals...

Purpose – The key purpose of this paper is to examine the causality and long-run relationship between CO2 emission and agricultural output for an agriculture-dependent developing country, namely Bangladesh.
Design/methodology/approach – In order to attain the objective, this study has used long-time series data and employed advanced econometric techniques of unit root test, nonlinear least square estimation, Vector Error Correction estimation and Granger causality test.
Findings – The empirical results of the study reveal that Bangladesh agricultural output is not a Granger causal for Bangladesh CO2 emission, but the country's CO2 emission is a Granger causal for its agricultural output. The results also reveal for Bangladesh that any disequilibrium between CO2 emissions and agricultural output could take approximately 17 years to converge to the long-run equilibrium. The results further reveal that the adjustment rate for Bangladesh agricultural output is positive and quite fast at the rate of 69 percent a year. So any disequilibrium will be corrected mostly by the adjustment in Bangladesh agricultural output.
Practical implications – The current CO2 emission in Bangladesh is still below the equilibrium level, which is considered to be an advantage for the country...

We propose a method of analysis of dynamical networks based on a recent
measure of Granger causality between time series, based on kernel methods. The
generalization of kernel Granger causality to the multivariate case, here
presented, shares the following features with the bivariate measures: (i) the
nonlinearity of the regression model can be controlled by choosing the kernel
function and (ii) the problem of false-causalities, arising as the complexity
of the model increases, is addressed by a selection strategy of the
eigenvectors of a reduced Gram matrix whose range represents the additional
features due to the second time series. Moreover, there is no {\it a priori}
assumption that the network must be a directed acyclic graph. We apply the
proposed approach to a network of chaotic maps and to a simulated genetic
regulatory network: it is shown that the underlying topology of the network can
be reconstructed from time series of node's dynamics, provided that a
sufficient number of samples is available. Considering a linear dynamical
network, built by preferential attachment scheme, we show that for limited data
use of bivariate Granger causality is a better choice w.r.t methods using $L1$
minimization. Finally we consider real expression data from HeLa cells...

We analyze by means of Granger causality the effect of synergy and redundancy
in the inference (from time series data) of the information flow between
subsystems of a complex network. Whilst fully conditioned Granger causality is
not affected by synergy, the pairwise analysis fails to put in evidence
synergetic effects. We show that maximization of the total Granger causality to
a given target, over all the possible partitions of the set of driving
variables, puts in evidence redundant multiplets of variables influencing the
target, provided that an {\it unnormalized} definition of Granger causality is
adopted. Along the same lines we also introduce a pairwise index of synergy
(w.r.t. to information flow to a third variable) which is zero when two
independent sources additively influence a common target, differently from
previous definitions of synergy.; Comment: 2 figures

Important information on the structure of complex systems, consisting of more
than one component, can be obtained by measuring to which extent the individual
components exchange information among each other. Such knowledge is needed to
reach a deeper comprehension of phenomena ranging from turbulent fluids to
neural networks, as well as complex physiological signals. The linear Granger
approach, to detect cause-effect relationships between time series, has emerged
in recent years as a leading statistical technique to accomplish this task.
Here we generalize Granger causality to the nonlinear case using the theory of
reproducing kernel Hilbert spaces. Our method performs linear Granger causality
in the feature space of suitable kernel functions, assuming arbitrary degree of
nonlinearity. We develop a new strategy to cope with the problem of
overfitting, based on the geometry of reproducing kernel Hilbert spaces.
Applications to coupled chaotic maps and physiological data sets are presented.; Comment: Revised version, accepted for publication on Physical Review Letters

It is often useful in multivariate time series analysis to determine
statistical causal relations between different time series. Granger causality
is a fundamental measure for this purpose. Yet the traditional pairwise
approach to Granger causality analysis may not clearly distinguish between
direct causal influences from one time series to another and indirect ones
acting through a third time series. In order to differentiate direct from
indirect Granger causality, a conditional Granger causality measure in the
frequency domain is derived based on a partition matrix technique. Simulations
and an application to neural field potential time series are demonstrated to
validate the method.; Comment: 18 pages, 6 figures, Journal published

Multi-electrode neurophysiological recordings produce massive quantities of
data. Multivariate time series analysis provides the basic framework for
analyzing the patterns of neural interactions in these data. It has long been
recognized that neural interactions are directional. Being able to assess the
directionality of neuronal interactions is thus a highly desired capability for
understanding the cooperative nature of neural computation. Research over the
last few years has shown that Granger causality is a key technique to furnish
this capability. The main goal of this article is to provide an expository
introduction to the concept of Granger causality. Mathematical frameworks for
both bivariate Granger causality and conditional Granger causality are
developed in detail with particular emphasis on their spectral representations.
The technique is demonstrated in numerical examples where the exact answers of
causal influences are known. It is then applied to analyze multichannel local
field potentials recorded from monkeys performing a visuomotor task. Our
results are shown to be physiologically interpretable and yield new insights
into the dynamical organization of large-scale oscillatory cortical networks.

Inferring causal interactions from observed data is a challenging problem,
especially in the presence of measurement noise. To alleviate the problem of
spurious causality, Haufe et al. (2013) proposed to contrast measures of
information flow obtained on the original data against the same measures
obtained on time-reversed data. They show that this procedure, time-reversed
Granger causality (TRGC), robustly rejects causal interpretations on mixtures
of independent signals. While promising results have been achieved in
simulations, it was so far unknown whether time reversal leads to valid
measures of information flow in the presence of true interaction. Here we prove
that, for linear finite-order autoregressive processes with unidirectional
information flow, the application of time reversal for testing Granger
causality indeed leads to correct estimates of information flow and its
directionality. Using simulations, we further show that TRGC is able to infer
correct directionality with similar statistical power as the net Granger
causality between two variables, while being much more robust to the presence
of measurement noise.

#Exchange rate#cointegration#stock price#impulse response#variance decomposition and Granger causality

This paper seeks to examine the dynamic causal relations between the two major financial assets, stock prices of the US and South Africa and the rand/US$ exchange rate. The study uses a mixed bag of time series approaches such as cointegration, Granger causality, impulse response functions and forecasting error variance decompositions. The paper identifies a bi-directional causality from the Standard & Poor's 500 stock price index to the rand/US$ exchange rate in the Granger sense. It was also found that the Standard & Poor's stock price index accounts for a significant portion of the variations in the Johannesburg Stock Exchange's All Share index. Thus, while causality in the Granger sense could not be established for the relationship between the price indices of the two stock exchanges it can argued that there is some relationship between them. The results of the study have implications for both business and Government.
